Capt Amarinder made Punjab Kashmir when he banned jobs in 2002: AAP
Capt Amarinder and Badals responsible for unemployment, drugs, spurt of crime: Mann
Chandigarh, January 31- Aam Aadmi Party(AAP) today rebutted the comments of PPCC president Capt Amarinder about AAP and blamed him for making Punjab a Kashmir when he banned government jobs in the state in during his rule in 2002 to 2007 and gave police feee hand to beat up protesting women teachers.
AAP campaign committee chairman and MP Bhagwant Mann in a statement said that Capt Amarinder Singh’s job ban decision had caused wide spread unemployment and demorelisation among youth. He said that police was given unbridled powers to supress agitations of teachers and unemployed youth and even women teachers were beaten up mercilessly.
Mann said that Capt Amarinder was never concerned with the plight of people and worked for his own political promotion. He won Patiala assembly seat in 2007 but didnt turn up to take oath. He again won in 2012 from Patiala and his ‘missing MLA’ poster were seen on the walls of city. He resigned from Patiala assembly and contested Amritsar Lok Sabha and now resigned from there too to contest assembly. He said that his dream to become CM would never be fulfilled.
Mann said that people of Punjab have preferred AAP over Congress and SAD-BJP alliance to bring the state back to rails. The successive Congress and SAD-BJP government had created rule of anarchy in Punjab, formed mafia to loot people. In the past AAP had neither ruled in Kashmir nor in Punjab.
Mann said that AAP has ruled in Delhi for two years and brought a radical changes in education and health sectors and worked for welfare of all sections. He said that Capt Amarinder Singh has no credibility and people of Punjab understand his collusion with SAD and BJP to defeat AAP. Congress and SAD are responsible for drugs, unemployment and spurt of crime in the state. Punjab is ready to get rid of Capt Amarinder and Badal family, he added.
