The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Monday said Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal was “evasive and non-committal” on various issues like scams, corruption and suicides by farmers in the state.
“He was evasive and non-committal on most issues like the food grain scam, corruption, suicides by farmers and the mafia rule,” senior AAP leader and Punjab affairs incharge Sanjay Singh told media in Chandigarh after a brief meeting with Badal outside the chief minister’s residence.
Sanjay Singh was part of the AAP delegation that met Badal, who walked out of his official residence in Chandigarh’s upscale Sector 2 amid unprecedented security to meet the delegation members.
On the other hand, Badal said most issues raised by the AAP were under the purview of the central government.
According to Hindustan Times, nearly 15,000 AAP activists gathered at the Dussehra Ground near Phase 7 in Mohali town, adjoining Chandigarh, as part of their proposed march towards Badal’s Chandigarh residence.
