Former Union Minister and national spokesperson of the All India Congress Committee Manish Tewari on Saturday condemned the treatment meted out by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) to senior Punjabi leaders to pave his own way to take over the Punjab leadership.“Kejriwal is a selfishly ambitious careerist who can sacrifice anyone and everyone in his ambitious pursuit,” Tewari said while talking to reporters after presiding over a function organised by PCC general secretary and Ludhiana East in-charge Gurmail Singh Pahalwan here on Saturday.
“Kejriwal wants a promotion for himself in the delusional and misplaced belief that he will become Punjab CM one day as he feels he is an incomplete Chief Minister of Delhi,” he said, while adding, that is the reason he is trying to weed out everyone, he thinks, can pose a challenge to his misplaced Chief Ministerial ambitions.The AICC spokesperson said that the series of errors committed by the AAP leaders whether by default or design only proves one point that they are yet to understand and get feel of Punjab.
“The AAP leaders from Delhi and UP are behaving like mercenaries without any respect for the culture, ethos, sentiments and feelings of the local people,” he said. The former Union minister said that there was nothing unexpected about the AAP implosion as it had to happen one day given the conflicting and contrasting ambitions of the leaders who had come together only for vested interests.
