Amritsar, January 23
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) organised a motorcycle rally in support of farmers’ January 26 tractor parade in Delhi here on Saturday. The party activists took out a motorcycle rally from the party office at Bhandari Bridge and proceeded towards Hall Bazaar and then Ward No.37 of the south constituency. The rally was led by state unit joint secretary Ashok Talwar, district president Parminder Singh Sethi and district secretary Iqbal Singh Bhullar.
Ashok Talwar said the party supported the tractor parade of farmers and they would be part of the parade in Delhi without the party flag. A large number of farmer activists voluntarily reached Delhi.
Parminder Singh Sethi and Madam Seema Sodhi said the Aam Aadmi Party took out a motorcycle rally against the Modi government and for the rights of the farmers in which over 1,000 AAP workers participated. The Modi government had held 11 meetings with the farmers.
Owing to the Modi government’s arrogance, all the meetings proved futile. The BJP would have to pay the price for this attitude. The Capt Amarinder Singh government also joined hands with the BJP government at the Centre.”
Sohan Singh Naagi, district office in-charge, Jagdeep Singh, district event in-charge, Vikramjit Vicky, district media in-charge, Vipan Singh, district treasurer, Anil Mahajan and other senior leaders also addressed activists. Iqbal Singh Bhullar appealed to the residents of the district to be a part of the Delhi parade on January 26 so that the government could gauge the strength of people.
