The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) on Thursday said the AAP leaders had resorted to “debauchery”, pointing out the sex tape scandal of Delhi minister Sandeep Kumar who was sacked after the expose.
“The minister’s episode is one among the long list of crimes of the Delhi AAP legislators, including lying, cheating, domestic violence, sexual misconduct and raking up of communal tensions,” SAD spokespersons Dr Daljit Singh Cheema and Maheshinder Singh Grewal said in a statement here.
“One-third of the AAP MLAs in Delhi, including chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia and assembly speaker Ram Nivas Goyal, have criminal cases pending against them,” the SAD leaders said.
They also pointed out the skirmishes amongst the AAP leaders in Punjab following the release of the candidates’ list of that party.
“If one studies the current list of party tickets released by the AAP for the assembly election in Punjab, it is clear that it has adopted the Delhi model for distributing party nominations. Already there are allegations that corrupt officials and history-sheeters have been given the party tickets in Punjab. Won’t such persons indulge in the same malpractices here?” the SAD leaders asked.
They stated that AAP leaders themselves were detailing that how Uttar Pradesh-based AAP leaders were asking for and taking crores of rupees from ticket aspirants in Punjab.
“In all, 48 criminal cases had been registered against 22 AAP legislators at various police stations in Delhi. The government itself could be toppled soon if this trend continues as the Tihar jail will become home of most of the AAP legislators,” the SAD leaders remarked.
