CHANDIGARH: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Punjab president and Sangrur MP, Bhagwant Mann has strongly condemned Captain Amarinder Singh led congress government in Punjab for forcibly imposing the rejected leaders on the people of Punjab just the way SAD-BJP government did during its previous tenures.
Mann said by asking the rejected congress leaders who have lost in the Punjab assembly polls to distribute cheques in various constituencies Capt Amarinder was trying to legitimise the practice which was common during the SAD-BJP regime and against the spirit of democracy.
Mann said while during the Badals' regime these rejected political leaders were dubbed as Halqa In charge Amarinder has rechristened them as ' social observers' .
Mann said before forming the government early this year Capt Amarinder used to criticise Badals for unleashing the unelected leaders on the people of Punjab which he used to term as absolutely unconstitutional.
However barely six months have gone by since the congress government came to power that Amarinder began to follow the same unconstitutional practice of the previous SAD-BJP government which he once so vociferously criticised.
Mann while giving an example said the Akali government had imposed former bureaucrat and unelected leader Darbara Singh Guru on the people off Bhadaur constituency in Sangrur district and now Capt Amarinder has brought his one time close associate & former MLA Kewal Singh Dhillon in Barnala assembly segment to distribute cheques which was completely against the spirit of democracy.
Mann said since these unelected leaders have no constitutional authority and accountability they often indulge in illegal and undemocratic practices and their excesses in the constituencies were conveniently ignored by the incumbent state government.
