Union food processing minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal backed Punjab Congress president Captain Amarinder Singh, who had asked the Election Commission to send back all the NRIs campaigning in the state.

Harsimrat said that the Election Commission should take cognizance of the presence of NRIs and alleged that AAP has instigated its supporters to attack rivals, which she said might end up vitiating the atmosphere in the state.

Watch the video here:

On 22 January, Capt Amarinder had asked the Election Commission that all the AAP ‘NRI’ volunteers be sent back. “Over 27,000 Punjabi-origin people (including foreign nationals) and about 40,000 volunteers from around India are in Punjab to campaign for AAP,” wrote Amarinder to the Election Commission and asked it to take cognizance of the matter.
