Shiromani Akali Dal leader Daljit Singh Cheema said Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal and Convener Bhagwant Mann were hand in glove with BJP.

He also said that Arvind Kejriwal should have apologized to the farmers for the sin committed by Bhagwant Mann during the AAP public function at Baghapurana.

“The very fact that he did not do so proves that Kejriwal sold off the interests of farmers to the BJP led central government,” he said.

Shiromani Akali Dal leader Daljit Singh Cheema said Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal and Convener Bhagwant Mann were hand in glove with BJP.

Cheema said it was also now clear that Bhagwant Mann indulged in this devious act with the approval of the Delhi chief minister. “AAP has struck a deal with the Centre at the cost of the welfare of the farmers of the country. It stands thoroughly exposed,” said the Shiromani Akali Dal leader.

Shiromani Akali Dal leader Daljit Singh Cheema said Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal and Convener Bhagwant Mann were hand in glove with BJP.

He further said Mann had walked out from the Lok Sabha when the Essential Commodities Act was tabled for amendment.

“At that time Mann made a false claim that the Bill was not put to vote. Now he has supported the same Act which proves that he is mixed up with corporate houses and did all this purposely to benefit them as well as the central government,” he added.
