The convener of the state Aam Admi Party, Rajan Sushant, who is a former member of Parliament, called the Congress party and the Bharatiya Janata Party "two faces of the same coin", claiming the "main programme" of both parties was to "mint money and fool people for their personal gain".

Talking to local reporters on Tuesday, he alleged corruption was rampant in the state and the Congress party led government was doing nothing to check it. "The present and former chief ministers are busy fighting against one another in courts and people are upset over the political situation in the state that isn't likely to improve soon," he added.

The AAP leader described the one year rule of the BJP led government at the center as "dismal and anti-people in general and anti youth in particular." "The NDA government has failed to deliver goods to the people and is once again busy trying to sidetrack the main issues confronting the public through thanksgiving rallies being held all over the country. People shouldn't fall prey to the false propaganda put out by the Congress party and the BJP and instead extend their full support to AAP all over India," he added.

Sushant hit out at the state government for "not providing any help to residents of various areas in the state including Hamirpur district that were badly hit by heavy rain and natural calamities last year. "It's shocking that the government is sleeping over the situation and causing problems to the common man," he added.

He claimed the AAP government in Delhi had done excellent work during the last one hundred days it took office. "It has remained busy in its efforts to serve people despite the troubles being created by the BJP led central government through the state's lieutenant governor," he added.
