Raising slogans against the Akali government, the AAP volunteers alleged that the Akalis were trying to disturb the atmosphere by such acts.

AAP leader Nijjer said, “It is time that the Punjab Police ensure security in rallies of the AAP. If any untoward incident takes place, the Punjab government will be responsible for it,” he added.

The AAP leader said that such acts of the Akali Dal will not be tolerated as the only aim of the Akalis is to disrupt the campaign of the AAP and spoil the atmosphere.

During the protest, slogans were raised against the Punjab government and urged the government to improve the law and order situation in the state.
