The Aam Aadmi Party”s Punjab chief ministerial candidate will hail from the state and will be somebody who can be called the pride of the state, party leader Raghav Chadha said.
With assembly polls in Punjab set for early next year, the AAP is going all out to win the battle and has already promised free 300 units of power to the people of the state if it forms the next government.
Chadha, the AAP”s Punjab co-in cost, advised PTI in an interview that individuals of the state need to give the Arvind Kejriwal led occasion an opportunity within the subsequent polls because the Akali Dal has turn out to be “irrelevant”, while the Congress has been the most “nikami sarkar” (ineffective authorities) ever within the historical past of electoral politics of Punjab.
He stated the chief ministerial candidate of the occasion for Punjab might be determined by the political affairs committee sooner or later of time.
On possibilities of AAP MP and Party”s Punjab unit president Bhagwant Mann being chosen, he said at this point and time, “I can only say three characteristics of the CM candidate of AAP. One is that he will hail from the state of Punjab, he will be from the 2.8 crore population of Punjab and thirdly he will be somebody who can be called the “aan baan shaan” (pride) of Punjab.
Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party”s nationwide convener Arvind Kejriwal in June had stated that the occasion”s chief ministerial face for the 2022 Punjab assembly polls would be from the Sikh community.
Over reports that Mann”s supporters need that he must be named because the CM candidate, Chadha stated, “All are supporters of Kejriwal and of the Kejriwal mannequin of governance. I don”t wish to comment on individuals but the vote is for Jhaadu (party”s signal) and for Kejriwal”.
Several AAP volunteers in Sangrur and Barnala districts are holding meetings to press the party leadership to choose Mann as the chief ministerial face, sources in the party said.
Talking about the political situation of Punjab, Chadha claimed that the Akali Dal is slowly becoming “irrelevant” as a result of individuals have “utmost hatred” for the party of Badals and want it to be defeated.
As far as the Congress is concerned, it is on a “suicide mission and on self destruction mode” and they don’t want an opposition. They are their very own opposition and individuals are simply ready for the AAP and for elections to occur, he stated.
On Amarinder Singh”s resignation from the chief minister”s submit on Saturday, Chadha has stated that governance in Punjab has been the largest casualty within the Congress occasion”s “”Game of Thrones”.
“The individuals of Punjab are craving for a change. They really feel they’ve tried everybody and now solely AAP is their hope and so they want to strive AAP, they want to vote for AAP and are banking closely on the Kejriwal mannequin of governance in Delhi that was showcased within the final six years,” he stated.
Chadha said when he asks people of the state who they will vote for in the next polls, they reply that this time they want to give a chance to AAP.
On the impact of the ongoing farmer”s protest on the polls, Chadha alleged that every one three events – BJP, Congress and Akali Dal – have “betrayed” the Indian farmers and “backstabbed” them
“I don”t look at the farmers protest through the prism of politics and it would be unfair for anyone to do that but I can most certainly say that the BJP is not even a player in Punjab because of enacting these three laws. Akali Dal is hated because they were the people who brought this law as Harsimrat Kaur Badal being the minister in the Union Cabinet proposed this legislation and Captain (Amarinder Singh) is also hated because he was part of the drafting committee of these laws,” he stated.
“The AAP and its chief Arvind Kejriwal have stood with the farmers all through and have been rock strong behind them and can work for the welfare of the farming neighborhood and their uplift,” he said.
Asked if the AAP will be benefited by the vote bank of Akali Dal, he claimed that everyone will be voting for the AAP not just those who are traditionally Akali Dal or Congress voters.
“This time all these divisions and classifications are not going to work. Just like when elections happen in, Delhi people from all caste, creed and religion vote for Arvind Kejriwal. Similarly, they will vote for Kejriwal in Punjab,” he stated.
Talking in regards to the occasion”s vision for Punjab, Chadha said reforms that have been carried out in the national capital will also be carried out in Punjab.
“With utmost sincerity and dedication we will work work towards making Punjab “khush haal” (happy) and achieving our dream of “rangla Punjab” (vibrant and colourful) by solving the problem of unemployment, debt trap of the state, uplift farmers and giving them their due, working for the landless labourers, ease of doing business for the business community and the traders, reforming completely the electricity and the water sector,” he stated.
The occasion will even attempt to carry to Punjab world class training in main and secondary faculties in addition to an reasonably priced and accessible healthcare system.
