Punjab Congress president Capt Amarinder Singh on Friday took a jibe at Sikhs for Justice (SFJ) over its complaint against the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP)’s political programmes in Canada, months after the party leaders had addressed meetings there.
“It is like locking the stable after the horse has bolted,” he said in a statement here, pointing out that the AAP leaders had already held political rallies in Canada and nobody, including SFJ, complained against them then.
“What is the point in filing a complaint when the AAP leaders have already held several public meetings last year and this year?” he asked. “This is just an afterthought by the anti-India group as I had questioned its silence on the AAP holding similar functions in the past,” Amarinder said.
He said SFJ is playing into the hands of those who were opposed to his programmes in the US and Canada, like the AAP, and after being exposed, had now filed a token complaint against that party’s programmes there.
“But I am thankful to these people as they have exposed themselves and the Punjabis across the globe have understood their machinations in trying to prevent me from meeting my fellow Punjabis in North America,” he said.
