Kejriwal to contest all 13 LS seats in Punjab, no tie-up on cards

Press Trust of India  |  Chandigarh 

Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party's national convener Thursday said his party will contest all the 13 Lok Sabha seats in and not enter into alliance.

"We will fight on all Lok Sabha seats from the state, we will not enter into any tie-up with anyone," Kejriwal, who was in Bathinda to attend a party legislator's wedding, told reporters.

He lashed out at the ruling in the state and accused it of failing on all fronts.

"He (Amarinder) had promised to give a job in each family. He had said if anyone is unemployed then he will be given unemployment allowance, he had talked about raising social security pension, waiving debt of farmers, promised to youths. Only tall promises were made, but none have been fulfilled. He spoke lies and now people of are fed up with them," he alleged.

Kejriwal said Singh had promised to wipe out drug problem from the state, but it was still there.

He also charged the government of failing to act on the Justice Ranjit Singh Commission's inquiry report on incidents of religious sacrilege in the state.

"report puts the Badals in the dock. Despite this, Capt Sahab is not taking any action against them. No FIR has been registered against them, because they are hand-in-glove.. People are finding viable alternative in the shape of the AAP," he said.

Earlier in the day, Kejriwal attended the wedding of party from Bathinda (rural) Rupinder Kaur Ruby.

On a personal visit, Kejriwal was accompanied by his deputy,

of Opposition in the Assembly Harpal Singh Cheema, and party Aman Arora, were among other party leaders who attended the wedding.
