Jalalabad:National Convener of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on the maiden day of his 11-day tour of Punjab, proposed the name of Sangrur MP Bhagwant Mann to contest against Deputy Chief Minister and SAD President Sukhbir Singh Badal.
While addressing his first rally on the political home-turf of Sukhbir, Kejriwal asked the huge gathering if Bhagwant should contest against Sukhbir. The people, who turned out in large numbers, replied with a thunderous applause immediately to give approval to the proposal.
In fact, Kejriwal asked people thrice if Bhagwant should contest against Sukhbir and each time people replied in cheerful manner by saying “Yes, Mann should contest against Sukhbir.”
Immediately after that Kejriwal also proposed that in case Sukhbir changes his mind to contest from any other constituency and should Bhagwant Mann also follow him to contest from there and crowd responded positively.
Bhagwant who was standing close by, humbly accepted Kejriwal’s proposal and declared that he was ready to contest against Sukhbir from wherever he will contest the assembly election.
“I also invite Captain Amarinder Singh to contest assembly election against Sukhbir, instead of contesting from his traditional seat, to know whether people of Punjab accept him as their leader,” Mann dared Captain.
