Taking a dig at deputy chief minister and Shiromani Akali Dal president Sukhbir Singh Badal, Aam Aadmi Party MP Bhagwant Mann remarked on Saturday, “It seems [Sukhbir] is so scared of AAP that he has started to see me in his nightmares. I haunt him every night.”

Mann was in Sahnewal constituency of Ludhiana to take part in the road show of AAP candidate and youth wing chief Harjot Singh Bains. He made the remark in response to media queries on the recent statements by Sukhbir on the AAP.

On the issue of state convener Sucha Singh Chhotepur objecting to tickets to some candidates, Mann said he should meet the party’s national convener and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal. “AAP is a democratic party and everyone has the right to agree or disagree on any decision taken by the party. But the decision that gets the assent of the majority would be final,” Mann said.

He denied that there is infighting over ticket distribution. “We are here to work for the common people and not to taste power.” He also said that neither he nor Kejriwal could bring a change in Punjab unless people stand for themselves and come out in large number to show support for the party.
