Punjab BJP chief Kamal Sharma on Saturday dubbed Delhi chief minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convener Arvind Kejriwal as “Natwarlal” of politics, who is “fooling everyone for personal gains and self promotion”.

“This mufflerman bureaucrat-turned-politician has created anarchy in Delhi. Now, he is bent on replicating the same in Punjab. But, people of Punjab are intelligent and would not allow him to succeed in his sinister designs,” the state BJP chief said in a hard-hitting statement here.

Sharma said Kejriwal followed the “hit and run” policy as he hit at an issue but ran away when asked about its solution.

“Kejriwal has so far not clarified his stand on the JNU issue, where anti-national activities were being held and terrorists were being glorified as martyrs. It is shameful that the Afzal Guru day was observed on the JNU premises but Kejriwal, who claims to be a “saint” in Indian politics, is mum,” the state BJP chief said, asking Kejriwal to clarify his stand.

Referring to the Jat quota stir in Haryana, Sharma said Haryana kept burning for so many days but unfortunately Kejriwal, who hailed from Haryana, did not utter a single word. He said, “What moral right Kejriwal has to stay in politics if he stays away from the crucial issues? Kejriwal owes an explanation to the people of Haryana as to why he is silent on the matter.”

Cong questions Kejriwal’s performance as Delhi CM

Chandigarh: Questioning the performance of Arvind Kejriwal as the Delhi chief minister, Punjab Congress Legislature Party (CLP) leader Charanjit Singh Channi on Saturday cautioned people of Punjab about the dreams the AAP convener was trying to sell them.

“Earlier, deputy chief minister Sukhbir Singh Badal used the same marketing strategy. Now Kejriwal is using it to fool people of Punjab. Both stand exposed. Kejriwal is visiting the families of the farmers who committed suicide besides those of drug addicts. What vision he carries to address this problem, he should tell the people of Punjab. Where was he when this problem was multiplying and taking lives of youth under the politico-police nexus,” Channi said in a statement. The CLP leader said the Delhi CM was now talking of tackling the agrarian crisis within no time, forgetting that the situation had been developing over the years and it needed a holistic approach.
