Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Punjab affairs in-charge Jarnail Singh, reacting to the statement of Punjab Congress leader Sunil Jakhar, said that Jakhar's statement has proved that Congress Party’s high command Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi, sitting in Delhi, is pulling the strings of congress leaders in Punjab. Gandhi family, against the recommendation of their MLAs, appointed Charanjit Singh Channi as the Chief Ministeof Punjab so that they can remote control the government in Punjab.
Addressing the media at the party headquarters on Wednesday, Jarnail Singh cited the statement of Sunil Jakhar, in which he said that 42 MLAs agreed on Jakhar's name in the Congress MLAs’ meeting held after the removal of Captain Amarinder Singh from the post of Chief Minister, Deputy Chief Minister Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa 16, Preneet Kaur 12, Navjot Sidhu 6 and Chief Minister Channi had the support of only two MLAs, and said that Congress President Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi had acted against the wishes of their MLAs, only for their own satisfaction. Charanjit Singh Channi, who had the support of two MLAs, was named the Chief Minister and imposed on the people of Punjab.
He said that Congress leaders accuse the Aam Aadmi Party of being controlled from Delhi, when the reality is that the Congress party runs on the behest of Delhi. Chief Minister Channi is proof of this. He said that BJP and Congress high command imposes their chief ministers on in every state, whereas Aam Aadmi Party for the first time in the history of the country asked for the opinion of the people to name its chief ministerial candidate in Punjab and according to the choice of the people of Punjab Bhagwant Mann has been declared as CM face.
On Congress’s survey for the Chief Minister, Jarnail Singh said that the Congress leaders used to raise questions on the survey of the Aam Aadmi Party. Now they are conducting the survey. First Congress raises question and then they imitate the Aam Aadmi Party. He said that Congress is giving three options in its survey, first Charanjit Singh Channi, second Navjot Sidhu and third none of these. But We didn’t put limit on options and asked the people to name the Chief Minister of their choice. In fact, the Congress party is friegthened. Fearing defeat, Chief Minister Channi is contesting from two seats, but he will lose from both the constituencies. This time people have made up their mind to teach a lesson to Congress. On February 20, the people of Punjab will give a fitting reply to Congress’s lies and loot.
