Chandigarh, 02 October:
Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann, who is on a Gujarat tour, launched a fierce attack on the BJP-Congress. He said that if the BJP is putting government companies on sale, Congress party’s MLAs are on the sale nowadays.
He said that BJP is buying Congress MLAs by selling the country’s assets to form its government in different states.
Addressing a public meeting in Gujarat’s Surinder Nagar, CM Mann accused the Congress of having alliance with the BJP and said that Congress wants the BJP government to be formed in Gujarat, that is why Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodi Yatra is not passing through Gujarat.
Mann also launched a scathing attack on the BJP and said that if the BJP government had worked in Gujarat, they would not have needed to hide the slums during then US President Donald Trump’s visit to Gujarat.
Mann said the BJP has destroyed the MCD of Delhi like Gujarat. Arvind Kejriwal made the government schools under the Delhi government world class, while the BJP ruined the government schools of MCD. When Donald Trump’s wife Melania Trump expressed her desire to see Delhi’s government schools, she was forced to show Delhi government schools only.
Mann appealed to the people of Gujarat to vote for the Aam Aadmi Party and said that the Aam Aadmi Party was a party that emerged from the anti-corruption movement and is a honest party.
“We do politics of truth, that’s why within 10 years we have government in two states. He said that BJP has money, so if they give money for votes first, then take it because it is your own money looted by them. But vote for AAP for better future of your children,” CM Mann said.
He said that we have completely eradicated corruption in Punjab. As soon as the government was formed, we issued an anti-corruption helpline number. On the basis of complaints received on that number, action was taken against more than 200 corrupt government employees-officers. Now the officers of Punjab are afraid of asking for bribe.
Referring to the cotton farmers of Surendra Nagar, Mann said that the condition of the farmers in Punjab was made pathetic by the previous Akali-BJP and Congress governments. “We’re fixing it. If the government is formed in Gujarat also, we will fix the condition of the farmers,” Bhagwant Mann added.
