Amid reports that the Punjab government denied permission to Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party convener Arvind Kejriwal's press conference, CM Captain Amarinder Singh on Monday said that it was not true.
Captain Amarinder Singh said that "It was not true totally. We let Arvind Kejriwal address a rally here just a few days back so why should we stop him now having a press conference?"
"If he wants I’d be happy to arrange his lunch too. Aam Aadmi Party just wants to do drama even if it means lying," he added.
It comes hours after AAP leader Raghav Chaddha claimed that the Punjab government denied Arvind Kejriwal's press conference.
Chaddha had tweeted: “Captain Amarinder Singh’s fear of Kejriwal has reached a point where his office has denied us permission to hold a press conference at the pre-decided venue. Nevertheless, Arvind Kejriwal will make a mega announcement tomorrow in Chandigarh which will send 440volt current to Captain and his party.”
Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal announced that free electricity would be provided in Punjab if the party forms the government in the state in 2022.
“It is very difficult for a woman to run her own house at such inflation. In Delhi, we provide 200 units of free electricity to every family. The women are very happy. Women in Punjab are very unhappy with inflation. The AAP government will provide free electricity in Punjab. See you tomorrow in Chandigarh,” Arvind Kejriwal had tweeted in Punjabi.
