Launching a scathing attack on Union Home Minister Amit Shah over his remark that the Bhagwant Mann government will fall after June 4, Aam Aadmi Party supremo Arvind Kejriwal said on Tuesday that the BJP thinks as they broke Shiv Sena, NCP, they can break Punjabis too but they will fail.

Addressing a rally here today, Kejriwal said, “They are running dictatorship in the entire country. Amit Shah said in Ludhiana that after June 4, our government will fall and Bhagwant Mann will not remain the CM. He is openly threatening the Punjab. They think that just as they broke Shiv Sena and NCP, they will break Punjabis too. Do not threaten Punjab, it will harm you.”

“They (BJP) have withheld Rs 9,000 crore of Punjab’s rights. Rs 5,500 crore is from the Rural Development Fund through which roads were to be built in villages. The money from the National Health Commission was to be used to build Mohalla Clinic. This is hooliganism. Politics should happen during elections,” Kejriwal added.

Further, the AAP chief said that in the previous governments, traders and industries were fleeing from the state while in AAP’s 2-year tenure, leaving Punjab has topped.

“When other parties were in power two years ago, traders and industries were fleeing Punjab. But now leaving Punjab has stopped. Our effort is to bring back those who have left, to give an opportunity to those who are here to build their businesses and to bring foreign investment into Punjab. In the last 2 years, investment of about Rs 56,000 crore has started in Punjab, which will employ about 3 lakh youth. If such a huge investment is coming, then it means the situation has improved,” Arvind Kejriwal added.

He further urged the people to vote for AAP in the Lok Sabha election and make it win all 13 seats in the state.

“If we have power at the Centre, we will be able to fight on the issues of the states. Today I request you to give 13 seats of Punjab so that your rights can be brought from the Centre,” he said.

Cong vows relief from GST on agricultural equipment

Congress National President Mallikarjun Kharge said on Tuesday that if the INDIA bloc comes to power at the Centre, they will exclude agricultural equipment from the GST ambit.

Addressing a press conference here today, Kharge targeted PM Modi-led BJP government at the centre and said that when farmers tried to enter Delhi to put forward their demands, tear gas shells were fired at them.

“Punjab and Haryana, despite having less land geographically, produce the most in the entire country. The country gets food from these two states. The farmers here think that their prices should be good and fair according to the MSP. Farmers agitated (2020-21) and put forward their demands before the BJP government. But still, the government did not agree. Tear gas shells were fired at them. The farmer remained sitting on the streets for the whole year,” Kharge said.

“We will give legal guarantee to MSP which is one of our five Nyay (Justice),” he added.

The Congress President also mentioned that their government will also provide 10 kg of free grains to the people.

“Along with five Nyay, our party has also given 25 guarantees. We will give 10 kg grains free to the people. We will work to pay the crop insurance compensation amount within 30 days. We will exclude the agricultural materials from the GST ambit,” he said. (ANI)

‘BJP planning to arrest all AAP leaders’

After the Delhi Court summoned Delhi Minister Atishi in a defamation case, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal termed it a “dictatorship,” and alleged that the Bharatiya Janata Party is planning to arrest all Aam Aadmi Party leaders.

AAP leader Atishi has been summoned by a Delhi court on June 29 in relation to a defamation case filed by BJP spokesperson Praveen Shankar Kapoor.

“I had said earlier that they will arrest Atishi next. They are planning to do so now. Complete dictatorship. In completely flimsy, frivolous, and false cases, they are arresting ALL leaders of AAP one by one. Every single opposition leader will be arrested if Modi ji comes back to power. AAP is not imp. Saving our dear country from dictatorship is important,” Delhi CM posted on X on Tuesday.

Moreover, the Delhi Minister questioned how the BJP formed the government in Goa, Manipur, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh and Arunachal Pradesh.

“I want to ask the BJP how they formed the government in Goa, Manipur, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh and Arunachal Pradesh. How do the MLAs reach the BJP from different parties? The BJP has to answer this. How does it happen that the NCP is split into two halves and all of their leaders come to the BJP, and all their CBI/ED cases are closed? When Chaggan Bhujbal comes to the BJP from NCP, then why do the CBI and ED file closure reports? When Praful Patel comes to the BJP then all matters of the Air India scam are closed. When Ajit Pawar comes to the BJP, then all cases in the EOW, against his wife and nephew, are closed. Operation Lotus of the BJP is out in the open… The BJP must answer how they are forming a government without getting the majority in the elections,” Atishi said.

However, BJP leader and candidate from the New Delhi constituency, Bansuri Swaraj said that AAP has an old habit of “shoot and scoot.”

“They keep leveling false allegations and think that there will be no consequences. ACMM Rouse Avenue summoned Atishi ji on June 29 in the defamation case. She will now have to give clarification on her 27 Jan 2024 tweet and allegations leveled at BJP during a press conference on 2nd April in which she said that she got an offer to join BJP,” she said.

She further said that AAP cannot make defamatory statements against BJP repeatedly and not be accountable. (ANI)
