Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC) president Capt Amarinder Singh on Wednesday questioned the Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal’s locus standi on visiting Sikh religious preacher Ranjit Singh Dhadrianwale, saying the AAP convener was “only fond of trying to fish in the troubled waters”.
“Beyond your compulsive fondness for fish in the troubled waters, you had no purpose in visiting the preacher as you could neither offer any solace nor any solution to him after the murderous attack,” Amarinder told Kejriwal in a statement here.
“You could not find time to visit the spot of the killing of the Congolese citizen, who was lynched to death in your backyard, Vasant Kunj, or stage a protest against the brutal act and still you found full day to visit Punjab,” Captain told Kejriwal.
Dubbing Kejriwal a man with “double standards”, Amarinder said it was quite characteristic of the Delhi CM to wait for an untoward incident so that he could peep into Punjab and seize the photo-opportunity ahead of the Punjab elections and runaway even without facing the media. When the terrorists attacked the Pathankot airbase, Kejriwal visited the families of two Punjab martyrs and ignored another martyr from his home state in Haryana.
