Aam Aadmi Party on Friday rubbished the accusations that its members had links with gangsters and terrorists and made as it accused the Congress for “patronising” dreaded gangsters including the key accused of Nabha jail break.
AAP state convener Gurpreet Singh Ghuggi said that it had became a habit for PPCC president Amarinder Singh to name AAP for any miss happening in Punjab even though the party has time and again made it clear that none of its leaders are involved in any kind of anti-social activity.
He said that Gurpreet Sekhon, the key accused in Nabha jail break, belongs to a Congress family and Vicky Gounder, an accomplice of Sekhon, was brought to the world of crime by a Congress leader.
Ghuggi claimed that family members of these gangsters have on record accused Congress for misguiding their wards.
He refuted charges that any AAP leader had given shelter to these gangsters.
The AAP leader affirmed that no office bearers of the party were involved in harbouring any gangster.
He also slammed state BJP chief Vijay Sampla for the meaningless allegations and said that gangsters and terrorists in Punjab were products of Congress and SAD.
This shows the frustration of SAD-BJP alliance and Congress leaders, Ghuggi said.
He alleged that the SIT formed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to probe the remaining cases of 1984 anti-Sikh riots had proved a hoax and it was used to give clean chit to criminals and leaders of Congress and BJP involved in the killings of Sikhs.
Modi had formed SIT to pre-empt formation of SIT by AAP government in Delhi. AAP was satisfied with the working of Election Commission and Congratulates the apex election body for peaceful conduct of elections in the state, Ghuggi said.
He, however, said that AAP had raised discrepancies at administrative level in Punjab and the EC has rectified the problems with positive mind.
