Punjab Congress chief Capt Amarinder Singh on Saturday condemned Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders Bhagwant Mann and Gurpreet Ghuggi for allegedly insulting teachers on the social media.

Demanding an unconditional apology from AAP leaders, Amarinder asked Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal to clarify his stand on the issue.

“This is not just insensitive, but totally insane. Even the inebriated condition, usually associated with one of them, can be no defence for anyone to insult teachers,” he said. “We cannot blame our teachers for the rot in the system,” Amarinder said.

He said the “irresponsible behaviour” of the two comedian-turned-politicians has only reinforced the public belief about them that they were not fit to be leaders.


Mann and Ghuggi clarified that some videos being circulated on the social networking sites having adverse reference to teachers were a part of propaganda of opposition parties to tarnish their image.
