Taking a dig at the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), newly-appointed Punjab BJP chief and Union minister Vijay Sampla on Saturday claimed his party really represents the common man as a “tea seller” can become the Prime Minister and a “plumber like me” its state chief and a central minister.

He also exuded confidence that in 2017 the SAD-BJP combine would achieve “hat trick” of winning in the state assembly polls as its leadership has the “perfect blend of mature visionary and enthusiasm of the youth”.

“Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been working day and night to undo the stigma of ‘scams’ associated with the country’s image since Congress rule,” Sampla said. He paid tribute at Khatkar Kalan, the ancestral village of Bhagat Singh and garlanded the statue of BR Ambedkar here.

Rajya Sabha member and former Punjab BJP chief, Avinash Rai Khanna said a comprehensive strategy has been formulated to thwart the “false and misleading propaganda” of opposition parties.
