Ludhiana: Already facing crisis in his party, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convener and Delhi chief minister, Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday have to face protest from his own party volunteers at village Jhande. Kejriwal is staying in a house of owner of a private college where he has invited volunteers of his party.
The series of protests were started in the morning when members of Jat Mahasabha turned there and protested against Kejriwal over the issue of Sutlej Yamuna Link (SYL) canal. The protesters termed Kejriwal as “anti- Punjabi” and asked him to clear his stand over the distribution of water. A volunteer said that he was coming from last three days but not being allowed to meet Kejriwal. The security and AAP volunteers did not allow them to enter the house.
The AAP leader, Amandeep Singh Bains who was denied entry expresses his anger on social networking sites. He said that they were waiting since ling to express their feelings but did not allow to meet Kejriwal. Tainted leaders were deputed on the entry gate who did not allow them to meet Kejriwal. “We want to convey Kejriwal to change the tainted candidates so that AAP should form government in Punjab”, he said.
Another AAP volunteer said that the Congress and the Akali Dal leaders meet their workers and common people easily but the arrogance of Kejriwal has proved that he is not “aam aadmi”.
The AAP leader also criticised the host and the AAP leaders for making them stand outside the house for hours under the sun without water.
Late in the evening, Kejriwal left for Patiala.
