AAP’s Sunam MLA Aman Arora on Thursday backed BJP MP Vijay Sampla’s claim that the BJP had committed “cow slaughter” in denying him the ticket.

Speaking to the media here after accompanying Jalandhar candidate Justice Zora Singh (retd), who filed his nomination, Arora said, “Narendra Modi and Amit Shah have committed cow slaughter in denying the ticket to Sampla.”

The Sunam MLA claimed that the BJP is sacrificing its own leaders to give tickets to film stars so that it could counter anti-incumbency.

Arora said, “There is no doubt that Modi and Shah have committed cow slaughter. They want to save themselves from anti-incumbency by sacrificing small leaders.)

He said, “Sampla comes from a humble background. The party made him MP, minister and the party chief. Sacrificing him at this juncture is uncalled for.”

Arora said the party is sidelining its leaders in favour of film stars as it had nothing to claim in terms of development.

Arora, along with Justice Zora Singh, addressed a gathering at the PUDA complex here and released a vision document for Jalandhar ahead of filing the nomination. District AAP president Shiv Dyal Mali also accompanied Justice Zora Singh.   

Talking about Amarinder making party ministers and MLAs accountable for the Congress’s performance in the state in the general election, Arora said had the Congress kept its manifesto promises it would not have to do so.

Meanwhile, AAP president Bhagwant Mann skipped the nomination owing to some work.
