Chandigarh :

Aam Aadmi Party today held protests at district headquarters across Punjab to oppose the arrest of its Delhi MLA Naresh Yadav terming it a part of a “deep rooted conspiracy of Badals” against the party. In a statement, Punjab’s AAP state convener Sucha Singh Chhotepur termed the arrest as political vendetta.

Chhotepur claimed Badals have nothing to show in their report card now and are unable to cope up with anti-incumbency in the state.

“The case against Yadav is just a political vendetta of Badal. The accused Vijay Kumar himself admitted being associated with VHP but police pressurised him to name AAP leader in the desecration case. Naresh Yadav had been fully cooperating in the police enquiry and will continue to do that. The people are fully aware of the acts of the Badals and will reply to them in 2017,” Chhotepur claimed.

The protesting leaders handed over a memorandum addressed to President of India to the deputy commissioners concerned. Yadav is under two-day police custody for the June 24 Malerkotla sacrilege incident.
