Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal on Thursday accused Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convenor Arvind Kejriwal of taking the politics at a lowest ebb following alleged involvement of its MLAs and party workers in scandals.He said he, for the first time, has seen such “indecent and undemocratic” acts by the leaders of any political party during his political career.Kejriwal should apologise to them for the indecent behaviour of his party colleagues towards women, Badal told reporters on the sidelines of the swearing-in-ceremony of the newly appointed Information Commissioners and members of Punjab Public Service Commission (PPSC) here.“It is very unfortunate and painful that AAP volunteers are indulging in hooliganism, throwing all the norms of political expediency to the wind,” he said.
Asked to comment on Kejriwal’s plan to purchase a house in Punjab, Badal took a jibe at his Delhi counterpart saying, “It is immaterial whether he settles here or at Delhi. But one thing I must say, that first of all he should put his own house (AAP) in order and teach the basic lesson of morality and its relevance in value-based politics to the entire rank and file of his party.” To a query on the prospects of fourth front in Punjab, he said it was a pack of disgruntled and rejected politicians who are vying to grab power in the state by hook or by crook. He said the front would hardly have any impact on the SAD -BJP alliance as they are determined to fight the upcoming Assembly polls exclusively on the plank of development.The Chief Minister said as the elections come, many such outfits or fronts mushroom but eventually vanish once the poll process was over. The sole objective of these “opportunistic” leaders was to pursue their personal agenda than to serve the masses with commitment, he added.
