After trashing the AAP claims of successful Covid management by the Arvind Kejriwal government in Delhi, Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh today expressed shock and said the AAP leaders in Punjab had chosen to put their "petty vested political interests" above the security concerns of the state and welfare of its people.



AAP seems more focused on personal attacks... the party is ready to stoop to any extent.

Responding to the statements made by AAP leaders, the Chief Minister said they seemed more focused on launching a personal attack against him rather than condemning the Covid disinformation campaign being spearheaded by anti-social elements in the state's villages. This showed the extent to which they were ready to stoop to further their political agenda in the state, Amarinder added.

AAP unrelenting on dharamsot

  • Mansa AAP workers on Friday staged a protest and demanded that Social Welfare Minister Sadhu Singh Dharamsot be sacked for the scholarship scam
  • Submitting a memorandum of demands to the Mansa Deputy Commissioner, the AAP demanded a high-level inquiry extending to the previous SAD-BJP regime to get to the root of the scam

He said Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's announcement that AAP workers would go around in villages of the state with oximeters "further exposed their desperation to woo the people of our state, where they have no political standing left". Unlike the Kejriwal government, which had to beg for help from the Centre when the cases peaked in the national capital, Punjab was fully prepared to handle the crisis, he said, adding that while 10,000 pulse oximeters had already been procured and distributed, a tender had also been floated for another 50,000 to further support the frontline health workers and patients in home isolation, among others.

There was no dearth of equipment in Punjab. It was Delhi which seemed to be perpetually in need of help from others, said the CM. Quoting an instance, he said, the Union Home and Health Ministers had to personally step in to micromanage the Covid crisis in the national capital.
