Bathinda, September 7
AAP Member of Parliament (MP) and state president Bhagwant Mann today lashed out at Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh over his remarks against the party.
Reacting to Capt Amarinder’s statement in which he slammed AAP national convener Arvind Kejriwal for “playing into the hands of anti-nationals” over the issue of distribution of oximeters in Punjab, Mann said the Chief Minister’s office was being run by a Pakistani journalist, who was a close aide of Capt Amarinder.
As regards the Central teams being deployed in the state in view of the Covid situation, Mann said the Centre had endorsed what his party had
been saying for several months about the poor management of the Punjab Government.
“Now, will the CM reject the help of Central teams? At the national level, the Covid mortality rate has come down from 3.36 per cent to 1.81 per cent,
while in Punjab, it has risen to 2.64 per cent,” he said.
Lashing out at Congress president Sunil Jakhar’s remarks regarding oximeter being available for Rs 5, Mann challenged Jakhar to book and deliver one lakh oximeters at that rate to the people of Punjab. Mann said if the Congress leadership was ignorant of even the rates of oximeters, it could not be expected to be sensitive towards the lives of people.
