Chandigarh: In a press note released by the Punjab unit of the Aam Adami Party (AAP) here today it has expressed its displeasure over the step-motherly treatment given to the AAP MLAs at the swear-in-ceremony of Congress government. The officially invited MLAs were not even provided chairs to sit during the ceremony.
Whist interacting with the media the AAP’s senior leader and party’s legislature from Dakha consituency Adv H S Phoolka and Chief Whip and MLA Bholath, Sukhpal Singh Khaira along with other MLAs said that the no arrangements were made to facilitate the elected representative related to Aam Aadmi Party. Adv H S Phoolka said that this was the first time in the history, while chief minister was taking oath of his office and the leader of main opposition party along with his colleges was standing on the back of pandal.
He further stated that although the AAP MLAs don’t seek any VIP treatment of any kind but being the representative of people they must have given seats to sit at least. He said that AAP has culture of simplicity and all the MLAs follow the same ideology.
On the other hand Sukhpal Singh Khaira said that the swear-in-ceremony depicts the work culture of Congress and feudal mindset of Captain Amrinder Singh . He said that AAP MLAs attended the function respecting the mandate of the people of state while Badal Dal and BJP leaders were missing from the program. He said that the denying chair to the representatives of people is like disrespecting the people of Punjab.
Furthermore he added that Congress has failed to come out of its feudal mindset and people of Punjab now will not accept the intrusive behavior of Captain Amrinder Singh. “If congress cannot organize a function properly then what else the people of Punjab can expect from them” he said.
“We wish that the Congress party fulfill its promises of giving jobs to at least one person from the family, waive of the loan of farmers, eradicate drugs from the state etc made to the people of Punjab. We will keep a tab on the activities of Congress government inside and outside the assembly and failing in performing its duty the government has to feel the heat of Aam Aadmi.” maintained Sukhpal Singh Khaira.
