Speaking on the 6th day of his 11 days tour of Punjab to address Punjab Inquilab rallies here, constituency of Punjab Cabinet Minis­ter Ajit Singh Kohar, popular in the area as “Dodyian wala Baba” (Drug supplier), Kejriwal said that Akalis have ruined Punjab by making it as “hub” of drugs and AAP would take it a challenge to curb the menace within one month of formation of government.

“So far more than 40 lakh youth of Punjab are trapped in the drug network, spread by Akalis and after formation of government in Punjab, AAP would break the supply chain of drugs within one month and drug-addicted youth would be rehabilitated by opening rehabilitation centres at war foot level within six months and giving them employment”, Kejriwal vowed.

Delhi Chief Minister said that Congress is giving false hopes to the people of Punjab by claiming that it would fight against the menace of drugs in Punjab.  

“Dr Manmohan Singh Government was in Centre for 10 years with simultaneous rule of Badals in Punjab, but Congress never acted against Punjab Cabinet Minister Bikram Majithia, who has been operating multi-crore drug racket in Punjab.

In fact, Captain Amarinder Singh opposed the CBI probe, which was being demanded against Majithia by his (Captain’s) own party in Punjab, Kejriwal said.

Both Badals and Amarinder Singh have ruined Punjab during last 15 years and now the time is ripe to get rid of them for which people of Punjab were waiting impatiently, Delhi CM said 

As Akalis have already smelted their humiliating defeat in the forthcoming assembly polls, they have colluded with Amarinder Singh and now they are contesting Punjab assembly polls jointly, he claimed.  “I have learnt that many of the hoardings, which have been put up across Punjab have actually been funded by Badals”, Kejriwal said.

Similarly, they have also joined hands to wave black flags at him, wherever he goes to address people, otherwise, he said he has never seen Akalis showing black flags to Congress leaders or vice versa.

Expressing concerns over the growing atrocities on dalits in Punjab, which could be evident of several barbaric murders of youth, whose limbs were even chopped off by liquor mafia, Kejriwal said AAP Government would constitute a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to re-open and re-investigate cases pertaining to atrocities on dalits to punish those found guilty for such acts.

He said SAD-BJP Government, which claimed to be a panthic Government has failed to nab culprits of series of sacrilege incidents of Guru Granth Sahib, Quran-e-Sharif and Bhagwat Gita. 

“Sometimes I suspect, how can the culprits of Bargari sacrilege incident could have been gone Scot free, if Badals were not behind such incidents,” he added.

“Once AAP government is formed in Punjab, we will nab and put all culprits, who have desecrated religious Granths, behind bars”, Kejriwal pledged.

“I suspect Badals wanted to create communal tension in Punjab through sacrileges incidents to divert attention of people from their failure on all fronts”, Kejriwal claimed.

“Badals during the last 10 years of misrule amassed huge money due to their control on almost all businesses including Transport, Cable, Mining, Liquor etc.”, Kejriwal said claiming that Badals have squeezed Punjab to their fullest capacity to mint money.

Kejriwal reiterated that contracts of mining and bus permits, which Badals obtained through misuse of power would be taken back and would be distributed to unemployed youth, once AAP is voted to power.

Kejriwal once again revealed the bank accounts of Captain Amarinder Singh and his family and said if he was saying anything wrong, then he was ready to face legal action from Amarinder Singh.

National Convener of AAP, Kejriwal said that during the last 15 years, be it SAD-BJP or Congress, none of them have actually worked to improve the health and education system in Punjab, which have not only been deteriorated but of-late has been completely collapsed.

Kejriwal also promised that AAP Government after coming to power in Punjab would ensure free and fair treatment of Cancer in the state. Even the standard of government schools to be upgraded to match the standard of private schools, so that wards of poor could be imparted quality education.

Digging out at the visit of Prime Minister Narindra Modi at Bathinda yesterday, Kejriwal said “Modi failed to announced any major project or package for Punjab, whereas in Bihar before election, he announced a multi-crore of package.”
