NEW DELHI : Arvind Kejriwal has finally exposed his obsessive and abominable lust for Punjab’s chief ministerial position, Punjab Congress president Captain Amarinder Singh said on Tuesday, lambasting the AAP leader for misleading the people of the state with his shameful lies to the contrary.
Reacting sharply to AAP leader Manish Sisodia's exhortation at a rally asking people to vote for AAP with Kejriwal as the chief ministerial candidate, Captain Amarinder said the AAP national convener had proven what the Congress had all along been maintaining - that he had his eyes on the top post in the unfortunate event of his party coming to power in Punjab.
Kejriwal's ugly intentions had been thoroughly exposed with this development, which had shown what a slimy liar the Delhi chief minister was, said Captain Amarinder, adding that the AAP leader had been playing unabashedly with the sentiments of the people of Punjab since he stepped on its soil.
The entire campaign of AAP, led by Kejriwal, was founded on lies which the man was trying desperately to force the people to swallow with all kinds of electoral gimmicks and promises that they had no intention of keeping, said that Punjab Congress president.
Kejriwal, who is known for cheating and defrauding people in Delhi where AAP is in government, had been resorting to similar tactics in Punjab which he wanted to grab by hook or crook, said Captain Amarinder, cautioning the people against biting the carrots he had been dangling in front of them with his false claims and unfounded allegations.
From his lies on chief ministerial and deputy chief ministerial posts for Punjab to his conflicting statements on SYL and other issues, Kejriwal had all along been trying to befool the people in a desperate bid to seize power in the state and exploit it for personal gains after having failed to realise his dirty plans in Delhi, Captain Amarinder said.
That he had absolutely no interest in the welfare of the state and its people had become amply manifest in recent months with several of his party leaders involved in corruption and sex scandals while he himself continued to turn a blind eye to their nefarious activities, said Captain Amarinder, adding that AAP did not even have its own cadre in Punjab and was getting people from other states to work for it during the elections.
Captain Amarinder urged the people to use their ballot on February 4 to show Kejriwal that they could not be befooled into selling their interests to petty and selfish individuals like him.
