The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) on Sunday accused the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) of deceiving Punjabis by organising fund-raising dinners. The Akalis also alleged that AAP leaders were embarking on foreign trips to fill party coffers.
“Kejriwal and his team had earlier virtually forced the party cadre and prospective candidates to shell out Rs 5,000 per plate for food in a state which takes pride in running community kitchens. And now the same tactics is being played abroad with all senior leaders, including AAP state convener Succha Singh Chhotepur holding such programmes in Europe,” SAD secretary Mahesh Inder Singh Grewal said in a statement here.
Grewal said eyeing rich collection from gullible Punjabis, AAP national convener Arvind Kejriwal is likely to visit the United Kingdom soon.
Grewal urged the Punjabis to unmask AAP representatives during their trips abroad. “They need to ask AAP representatives how they plan to use the money.” “Till now, Kejriwal has used money, including that of the tax-payer, only for his self-glorification and done nothing for the people of Delhi, what to speak about Punjab”, he alleged.
