Mohali, November 25

The BJP today flayed senior AAP leaders Arvind Kejriwal and Bhagwant Mann for fielding “outsiders” from the Kharar constituency and “ignoring the local leadership”.

Senior BJP leader Vineet Joshi said in 2017, the AAP had ignored the local leaders by giving ticket to Kanwar Sandhu, who “ran away from his responsibility” after winning the election.

AAP is not pursuing a policy of change with the people of Kharar. In fact, it is indulging in politics of revenge. Vineet Joshi, BJP leader

Kharar residents are unable to approach their MLA and their key issues remain unresolved, he said.

“Sandhu never visited the constituency to meet his people. He is just a missing person,” said Joshi.

Kharar residents are not responsible for the underdevelopment of the area, but Kejriwal and Bhagwant Mann are responsible for this, he said. “Was it not Kejriwal’s duty to ensure that the Kharar MLA is present in his constituency for the service of people,” Joshi questioned.

“AAP is not pursuing a policy of change with the people of Kharar. In fact, it is indulging in politics of revenge. That is why after the missing MLA, now the party has chosen a singer from Mansa as its candidate for Kharar,” said Joshi.

“You and Anmol Gagan Mann will have to answer why she and her family left Mansa and why she has been nominated from Kharar constituency. Also, you will have to explain your relationship with Anmol,” Joshi asked Kejriwal. — TNS
