Women Wing of AAP to launch “Dastak” Campaign from June 18: Prof Baljinder Kaur
Jalandhar: Aam Admi Party (AAP) Punjab convener Sucha Singh Chottepur on Thursday said that the party has no plans to conduct a survey on drugs abuse problem in the state.
Chottepur said that AAP was banking on the survey conducted by All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) and the independent agencies. “AAP would not be conducting any survey to get data about the drugs abuse problem before the polls”, he said.
Addressing a press conference, Chottepur said that however after coming to power in 2017, AAP would bring an end to drugs abuse problem within two months time. “AAP was committed to its agenda of bringing an end to the drugs abuse problem”, he added.
Chhotepur also raised the issue of resignation of the Kamal Nath from the post of Incharge of Congress’ affairs in Punjab and said he has no moral right to continue in the politics. “Earlier Captain had given clean chit to key accused of the massacre of Sikhs in 1984 and now he did not take much time to issue clean chit to Kamal Nath, who himself gave resignation. Capt Amarinder should explain that how and in which capacity he gave clean chit to the ‘tainted Congress leaders?” he questioned.
Chhotepur also maintained that Kamal Nath’s resignation was a clear cut evidence that he acknowledged there was some substance to the allegations pointing at his involvement in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots. “Nath tendered the resignation on his own, as no one pressurised him. With Captain backing his appointment, his stand now stands questioned, accepting responsibility, the PPCC President Captain Amarinder Singh should immediately resign from the party”, he added.
The AAP state convener also said Punjab CM Parkash Singh Badal – who has himself been accused of sharing cordial relations with Kamal Nath – should also clarify his role on the issue. “CM Badal should persuade Prime Minister Narendra Modi to ensure that the SIT formed to look into 75 cases regarding 1984 anti-Sikh riots should also register an FIR against Kamal Nath”, he said.
Earlier, the Women Wing chief of AAP, Prof Baljinder Kaur said that the women Wing was all set to launch “Dastak”, a signature campaign in entire Punjab from June 18. She said that under this campaign, signature of womenfolk against the menace of drug abuse, unemployment, Corruption and price rise would be taken.
“Different teams of women workers of AAP would knock every door of the Punjab to get their signature against the menace of drug abuse and other serious problems like unemployment and price rise, through which every house is adversely affected”, she said.
