Chandigarh: The Punjab Congress has lashed out at AAP leader Kanwar Sandhu for his shameless attempts to mislead the people with brazen lies against their party president Captain Amarinder Singh.
Punjab Congress leaders dismissed AAP’s Sanjay Singh’s challenge for Captain Amarinder to contest the coming election against Bhagwant Mann from Jalalabad, saying election was a serious business for them and comedians like Mann could not be taken seriously.
However, Congress leaders pointed out that Capt Amarinder had already made it clear that he was ready to fight against AAP national convenor Arvind Kejriwal from any seat. If Kejriwal has the guts he should accept Captain Amarinder’s challenge, said Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC) leaders Rana Gurjit Singh, Kewal Singh Dhillon and Amrik Singh Dhillon.
PPCC leaders came down heavily on Sandhu, describing him as a fraud and an imposter who, in his desperation to woo voters, was resorting to baseless and totally false allegations against Amarinder, while throwing the code of conduct to the wind by announcing welfare measures which he had no intention of
It may be mentioned that Samrala Congress candidate Amrik Singh Dhillon has already lodged a complaint against AAP for announcing welfare measures for poor.
Sandhu was a known liar and opportunist who had shifted loyalties to AAP after taking umpteen favours from Akalis, said the PPCC leaders, pointing out that he had got his son admitted on an NRI quota seat in SGPC-run Medical College and had failed to pay for his son’s education despite being served several notices for the same.
