sidhu: Arvind Kejriwal: Sidhu ‘honest’, but suppressed by Channi | Chandigarh News

CHANDIGARH: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday praised Punjab Congress chief Navjot Singh Sidhu for his ‘honesty’. Kejriwal said that Sidhu has been raising public welfare issues.
Referring to a press conference where Sidhu had interrupted Punjab chief minister Charanjit Singh Channi after the latter claimed that sand was being sold at Rs 5 per feet.
“Sidhu interrupted Channi when he claimed that sand is being sold at Rs 5 per feet at a press conference. I really appreciate Sidhu for his courage.” said Kejriwal while speaking to mediapersons in Jalandhar.
“Sidhu has always raised issues related to common people but he has been always suppressed within the Congress party. Earlier, he was being suppressed by Captain Amarinder Singh and now chief minister Channi is doing the same to him,” added Kejriwal.
Kejriwal slammed Channi for not fulfilling the promises he made to the people of Punjab after taking over as the state CM.
“Channi has failed to fulfill any of the promises he made to the people of Punjab… he promised free electricity in the state…. he said Mohalla clinics would be set up, but nothing has happened,” said Kejriwal.
Kejriwal claimed that about 25 Congress MLAs are willing to join AAP and are in constant touch with him.
“Many people in Congress are in touch with us but we don’t want to take their garbage. If we start doing it then I challenge you that 25 Congress MLAs (in Punjab) would join us by evening. Their 25 MLAs & 2-3 MPs are in touch & want to join us,” said Kejriwal.
Kejriwal was accompanied by party MP Bhagwant Mann and Delhi MLA Jarnail Singh
