Punjab News: Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Monday ripped into Arvind Kejriwal’s brazen claims and allegations, slamming the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader’s shameless lies as a re-run of the spree of false promises and cheap attacks on the Congress he had resorted to back in the 2017 Assembly elections.
“The people of Punjab were wise to your deceptions then, and can see through them again now,” said Captain Amarinder Singh. Kejriwal’s barefaced lies will be exposed again, just as they had been exposed in the 2017 Assembly polls, he added.
Trashing his Delhi counterpart’s allegation of the Congress government in Punjab failing to fulfill its poll promises, the Chief Minister said it was ridiculous to compare his government’s track record of over 84 percent promises implemented with the Delhi government’s pathetic track record of less than 25 percent of AAP’s 2015 manifesto commitments fulfilled in 2020.
“If this is the Delhi model you (Arvind Kejriwal) are promising Punjab then my people are better off without it,” he added. Instead of indulging in deceitful claims and talking of `badla’ (revenge), Kejriwal should focus on Delhi, which is still waiting for him to fulfill even 50 percent of his poll promises, remarked Captain Amarinder.
Data available in the public domain shows AAP’s wretched credentials when it comes to delivering on its promises, said the Chief Minister.
Even as he pointed to the plethora of independent analyses ahead of the 2020 Delhi Assembly polls, which had shown that at the end of its 5-year term, the Kejriwal government had fulfilled only 11 of its 70 promises.
Slamming Kejriwal’s dramatics at a Mahapanchayat on Sunday, Captain Amarinder Singh said, “Unlike Delhi’s voters, those in Punjab are not deceived by such hyperbole and have trust in their own eyes and in what they can see on the ground.”
