Bhatinda: In a rally held in the Kolianvali village in Lambi, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convener Arvind Kejriwal announced that his party’s Jarnail Singh will contest against Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal from the Lambi constituency for the upcoming Assembly elections. Reacting to Jarnail’s nomination, Punjab Congress chief Captain Amarinder Singh said in a tweet,

Jarnail Singh, who is an AAP legislator from Rajouri Garden, had also unsuccessfully contested the 2014 Lok Sabha polls from West Delhi on the party ticket.

The SAD is however yet to announce Parkash Singh Badal as the party candidate from Lambi. Amarinder Singh has accused Jarnail Singh of being a non-entity in Punjab with no standing. The AAP’s act of pitting him against Badal from a high-profile constituency, the captain says, is just to ensure a walkover to Badal.

Amarinder Singh said that both the AAP and SAD had come to a tacit agreement to prevent the Congress from coming to power because of desperation after facing defeat in Assembly elections, and he wouldn’t be surprised if Kejriwal’s party had agreed to support Badals in lieu of cash or other benefits, given the history of AAP.

Amarinder Singh cited widespread corruption and the cash for vote allegations against the AAP to bolster his allegation.

Assuring that the Congress would be forming the next Punjab government with absolute majority in the House, Amarinder Singh said that for the past few weeks Kejriwal and his party had made it clear that they did not care for Punjab or its people but only about their own interests. He went on to say that the AAP was a group of greedy and anti-Punjab individuals.

This is not the first time the Punjab unit chief of the Congress has locked horns with Kejriwal on Twitter. Recently when Kejriwal accused him of a nexus with the SAD, he hit back with a tweet that many users of the medium relished with re-tweets.
