Punjab Congress chief Captain Amarinder Singh on Sunday cautioned the NRI community against letting the Akali-BJP combine to return to power in Punjab where assembly polls are due early next year.

“Let me caution you that any vote for the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will mean supporting the Akalis,” Amarinder, who is on the US tour these days, said in a statement. “In 2012, people voted in anger against Akalis for Manpreet Badal and eventually ended up bringing Akalis back to power. Please do not repeat the past mistakes and get carried away by false propaganda,” he appealed to the NRIs.

Amarinder said it was not the right time to making experiments and that too with those who don’t have any experience. NRI delegations from the United States and Canada met Amarinder during his three-day stay in Los Angeles, claimed the release.
