Terming the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) as a band of ‘fugitives, opportunists, anarchists and confrontationists’, Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal on Wednesday said that the civil war in party was just the trailer and the battle would further intensify after allocation of tickets. Interacting with media persons on sidelines of a sports event here on Wednesday, the Chief Minister said that the squabble for power has exposed that AAP leadership, which was totally undisciplined and bereft of any ideological commitment. He said that people should not expect anything good from these ‘greedy politicians’ who were dreaming to attain power just for minting money rather than serving the people. Badal said that this party neither has any history nor any contribution for the state but the opportunists and turncoats were joining this party just for the lust of attaining power.
The Chief Minister said that experience of AAP government in Delhi was a proof that the leadership of this party was votary of anarchist and confrontationist way of politics, which would be very detrimental for state if they manage to get power. Citing an example of Delhi, he said that AAP leader don’t want to ensure welfare of people but they believe in politics of confrontation which was not at all in the interest of state. “They have a track record of fighting everywhere which is not good for the state or its people,” added Badal.
Replying to another query, the Chief Minister said that the Union government must probe the funding of any party from foreign countries. He said that it was really a serious issue if any party gets funding from the countries abroad and must be investigated thoroughly. Replying to another query, the Chief Minister said that Captain Amarinder Singh was making baseless allegations regarding power scam just to hide his inability to do anything tangible for power sector during his government. He reminded Captain that while during his tenure people were reeling due to power cuts, the situation was totally different today during SAD-BJP alliance government when the state was the only power surplus state in the country. Badal asked Captain to refrain from making such irrational statements just for sake of scoring brownie points media.
Welcoming the announcement of NDA government to set up Special Investigation Team (SIT) to probe 1984 anti-Sikh carnage, the Chief Minister hoped that finally justice would be delivered to the victims of this heinous crime. He said that Congress which had perpetuated this carnage had ensured that perpetrators of this crime were not punished but this SIT was a welcome step as it would bring the guilty to book.
Later on addressing the gathering, the Chief Minister lauded MLA G S Babbehali for organising this mega sports event every year to promote sports in the region.
