CM face will be Punjabi: AAP
The Aam Aadmi Party’s Chief Ministerial candidate will be a Punjabi, AAP state affairs incharge Sanjay Singh said here today during the party conference at the Chhapar Mela.
Sanjay Singh said rumours were being spread by rival parties that “Punjab would be ruled by Delhi”. “I reiterate that the CM as well as the other ministers will be from Punjab,” he said.
He said the Badals and Agriculture Minister Tota Singh were responsible for the plight of farmers. Sanjay blamed Tota Singh for the sale of spurious fertilisers to farmers which led to a heavy damage to the cotton crop.
Meanwhile, AAP Member of Parliament Bhagwant Mann was not present at the conference. When asked about Mann’s absence, Sanjay said he might be busy with “some personal work”.
Jarnail Singh, state party co-incharge, said Sutlej-Yamuna Link canal was an inter-state issue which the Centre should resolve.
AAP leader HS Phoolka, who didn’t attend the party’s Baghapurana rally on Sunday, made an appearance today and addressed the conference.
