Jalandhar, January 24

People of Punjab would vote for the twin faces of AAP supremo Arvind Kejriwal and him this time, said party’s CM face Bhagwant Mann today.

Addressing the media after canvassing for Jalandhar AAP candidates here, Mann wondered how CM Charanjit Channi would control Punjab when he couldn’t keep tabs on his nephew, from whose house the ED recently seized around Rs 10 crore.

Ready for applause, brickbats

The poll is being contested on my face. If the match is won, the applause belongs to the captain. If it is lost, the abuse is also hurled at him. Bhagwant Mann, state aap chief

From ‘Ik mauka Kejriwal nu’ in the previous polls, the AAP was seeking vote on ‘Ik mauka Kejriwal te Mann nu’ slogan, he said, asking people to give a chance to them.

“This time, it’s a contest of pairs. On the one hand, there is Kejriwal and Mann, on the other it’s Sidhu and Channi. Kejriwal and I are like brothers. Houses where brothers live peacefully are blessed, but those where they fight are destroyed. Sidhu and Channi keep saying different things. They claim theirs is a ‘double engine’, ours too is, but it is on one track. The Congress has four to five engines running on different tracks,” he said.

Asked about the recent seizure by the ED, Mann said Rs 10 crore was a huge amount to be found at the house of a CM’s relative. “The money must have been given for some wrongdoing. Channi should explain where the money was meant to be used.”

On the issue of illegal mining, Mann said former CM Capt Amarinder Singh had expressed helplessness at taking action at a number of Congress MLAs involved. —
