Chandigarh: Revenue Minister Bikram Singh Majithia on Monday accused Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) of trying to take not only the people of Punjab but even courts for a ride in their desperate attempt to gain power through hypocrisy and brazen lies. Majithia cited the example of one of the senior-most leaders of the AAP, Ashish Khetan’s ‘outrageous lie’ before the court in Amritsar, in which he had declared that he could not attend the court as he had been advised bed rest for three days, that is July 29 to 31.
The court exempted him from personal appearance that day on medical grounds, believing that Khetan might be confined to bed. But this statement before the court turned out to be a big lie and a massive fraud when the same Khetan appeared on television channels on Sunday to argue his party’s case on the issue of poor management of sewerage and drainage by AAP government in Delhi following rains. “By ducking the court appearance on a false plea and preferring to go to television studio during the cited period, Khetan committed a grave contempt of court.
It is obvious from Khetan’s conduct that his party does not hesitate from trying to mislead even the judiciary and thus, acted like a Shaitan. Such is their respect for law. Such is their personal conduct and such is the level of their honesty and integrity. Such also is the manner in which they treat the sacred and established institutions in the country. Can the people of Punjab trust these AAP leaders who are not afraid to tell blatant lies. How much truthfulness can be expected in the public utterances of liars in courts,” asked Majithia.
