Aam Aadmi Party’s Punjab co-incharge Jarnail Singh hit back at Navjot Singh Sidhu, alleging that his political outfit Awaaz-e-Punjab is the “B-team of the RSS”, and said his attack on the Badal family was a diversion, as his real target was Delhi chief minister and AAP national convener Arvind Kejriwal.
Jarnail also said that by forming a new party, the cricketer-turned-politician finally accepted that he harbours chief ministerial ambitions. “Navjot Singh Sidhu’s press conference has made it clear that he is the B Team of the RSS. We were suspicious of him from the very beginning. He first wanted that the BJP should contest the Punjab polls all alone, but when it was not possible, he got separated with the blessings of the RSS,” Jarnail said.
“How can a person save Punjab when he cannot relinquish his claim to a ticket,” Jarnail added.
