“Won’t let a “Haryanvi”, “Delhiwala” become CM of Punjab” Amarinder attacks Kejriwal
Congress Leader Amarinder Singh today said he won’t let a “Haryanvi”, “Delhiwala” like Kejriwal to become the chief minister of Punjab.
“He is a Haryanvi, he is a Delhiwala and I will fight him from wherever he stands. Win or lose is God’s will, but I will not give him an easy chance in this,” he said, adding, “Kejriwal will not be allowed to come in and win”.
The Congress leader said Mr Sidhu was being “overrated” – who’s recently launched Awaaz-e-Punjab front is being supported by two Independent MLAs from Ludhiana besides former hockey captain-turned- politician Pargat Singh.
“I think we are over-rating Mr Sidhu, he has been a cricketer, but nobody remembers his cricketing days. Secondly, he has been doing cricket commentary, so people know him little bit from there. Thirdly, they know him from this foolish programme which he does (on TV) where he tries to make everyone laugh, that is all that they know of him”.
He further said, “If you think a comedian like Sidhu or a comedian like Bhagwant Mann or Gurpreet Singh Ghuggi (both AAP leaders) are the right people for Punjab, then God help Punjab.”
