The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Saturday accused the SAD-BJP government of “ruining” Punjab by its “anti-people” policies and the Badals of indulging in corruption and patronising mafia in the state.

“The SAD-BJP government has totally ruined Punjab through corruption and foolish policies. The state was at number one in the country in almost all fields prior to SAD-BJP rule,” AAP’s national spokesperson and in-charge of Punjab affairs Sanjay Singh said.

Accusing the Badals of “rampant corruption” and “patronising” different mafia including drug, land, transport, sand and gravel, cable and recruitment, he said it made people’s life “miserable and the farmers are being forced to commit suicide”.

Addressing gathering at Sunder Nagar in Ludhiana, Singh said the Badals are “misleading people by spreading false propaganda” against AAP leaders.

On the allegations of lack of experience levelled by the Badals and Punjab Congress chief Captain Amarinder Singh against AAP, Singh said, “The party has the art of smart governance, providing excellent health and education, reducing taxes, saving money from projects, which AAP government has proved in Delhi.”

Singh also accused the political opponents of “pursuing dynastic politics” and said AAP under the leadership of Arvind Kejriwal is committed to “completely wipe out” this practice.
