Chandigarh, January 21

AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal on Friday said Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi would be defeated from his Chamkaur Sahib seat in next month's assembly polls, stressing that people were shocked to see crores of rupees being seized from Channi's nephew's home.

“Our survey is showing that Channi ji is losing from Chamkaur Sahib. People are shocked to see on TV the ED officers counting bundles of notes,” said Kejriwal in a tweet.

Channi will contest the February 20 state assembly polls from Chamkaur Sahib.

The Aam Aadmi Party has been targeting Channi ever since the ED carried out raids at many places including on the premises of Channi's nephew.

Kejriwal on Wednesday had said that Channi is not a common man but a "dishonest man" as he sought to corner the Congress leader over the ED raids.

The AAP convenor through his comment had sought to target the common man’s image which Channi has tried to cultivate following his elevation as the chief minister last year.

"Channi aam aadmi nahi, baiman aadmi hai (Channi is not a common man, he is a dishonest man)," Kejriwal had tweeted in Hindi attacking the CM on Wednesday.

AAP leader Raghav Chadha on Thursday had asked Channi to explain the recovery of huge sums of cash seized during the ED raids from the premises linked to his relative.
