Union food processing minister and Bathinda member of Parliament from Bathinda Harsimrat Kaur Badal said Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convener Arvind Kejriwal was a “king cobra” and was “biting” his party leaders to become Punjab chief minister.

The Akali MP, who was in Mansa on Saturday to inaugurate rural sewa kendras, said: “Kejriwal’s next target will be Sangrur MP Bhagwant Mann as he is aiming at the CM’s chair and will keep suspending Punjab leaders of his party,” said she.

Harsimrat had earlier termed the AAP “seasonal frog” that often makes noise after coming out of hibernation. Over reports of Bhagwant Mann being miffed with the AAP, she said the Sangrur MP was already in touch with Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi and soon truth will be out in the open.

Criticising Punjab Congress chief Captain Amarinder Singh, she said he would betray voters of Amritsar, who had reposed faith in him in the Lok Sabha elections, as he wants to contest assembly elections from Patiala.

Regarding the alleged derogatory remarks by SAD MLA Virsa Singh Valtoha against the Dalits in the Punjab Vidhan Sabha, Harsimrat said: “The Opposition allegations are baseless and out of frustration as it has nothing to show against the SAD-BJP government. The opposition leaders are running short of public issues to be discussed in the assembly.”

Later, addressing a gathering in Bathinda, she said “morally and financially” corrupt AAP leaders were indulging in malpractices and looting people. “The AAP is a pack of liars, who are hell bent to misguide the people of Punjab,” she said.

“In the hour of crisis, when people of Delhi are facing severe dengue and chikungunya outbreak, not only the CM but also deputy chief minister and other ministers are on foreign jaunts,” she said.
