Chandigarh: Punjab Congress chief Amarinder Singh on Friday warned people claiming that voting for Aam Aadmi Party will be equivalent to a mandate for Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) “whose misrule they have been suffering for the past 10 years”.
Alleging both AAP and SAD “as organizations with radical ideologies”, Amarinder exhorted the people to be wary of playing into the hands of either in the February 4 state assembly elections.
“While the Akalis have been looting the people for the past 10 years through their mafia rule, the AAP has now brought in outsiders to destroy the very ‘Punjabiyat’ of the state,” he said addressing a pubic rally in Dera bassi, near here.
Amarinder vowed to punish those Akalis who had allegedly victimized people all these years. From Der bassi, Congress has fielded Deepinder Singh Dhillon. “With five lakh false cases and FIRs, the innocent people of the state were suffering under the Badal-led Akali rule.
In a separate rally at Khanna, the PPCC president said Asia’s biggest ‘mandi’ was in a shambles, as was the industry. He reiterated his promise to waive off farm loans to bring agricultural growth back on track and s urged people to vote for Congress candidate Gurkirat Singh Kotli.
