Ludhiana: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has blown the poll bugle in Punjab by stating that it would work against the drug menace in the state and end it if the party is elected in 2017 assembly elections in Punjab.The party leaders claimed that the drug menace would be ended within two months, if they form government in 2017 Punjab assembly elections. The AAP leaders were addressing a gathering during the Punjab Jodo rally, which was organised at Dana Mandi, Ludhiana, on Saturday.
Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) members staged a protest against the AAP leaders at the rally. They were raising slogans against Arvind Kejriwal and Kumar Vishwas. However, they also raised slogans in favour of Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale by raising the pictures.
These persons alleged that the AAP leader Kumar Vishwas has made objectionable remarks against Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale during an interview on a news channel. The police then detained the protestors who were released after a few hours.
Jaswant Singh Cheema, district president of SAD (Amritsar), said, “We want that the AAP should dismiss Kumar Vishwas from the party. The police should also register FIR against Kumar Vishwas, Arvind Kejriwal and the news channel which was telecasting the show where Kumar made objectionable comment.”
On the other hand, the AAP leaders claimed that they have no issue with these persons adding that there can be any misunderstanding.
