Chandigarh: Targeting union government over rising inflation in the country, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Tuesday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP of spending crores of tax money on toppling governments of other parties in the country rather than giving relief to common man from growing inflation.
Addressing a press conference here, chief spokesperson Malvinder Singh Kang said that instead of spending taxpayers’ money on their welfare, PM Modi is diverting it to topple governments of oppositions in different states but they have failed to do it in Delhi.
Kang said that BJP’s ‘Operation Lotus’ has failed in Delhi even though they had offered Rs 20 crore each to many AAP MLAs. BJP had spent a whopping Rs 6,300 crore to topple governments. BJP recently ousted the Maharashtra government, Arunachal, Manipur, and Goa and now has its sights set on Jharkhand. BJP had toppled the government in 8 states since Narendra Modi became PM of the country in 2014.
He asked PM Modi to conduct a CBI probe into seizure of over Rs 22000 crore drugs from Gujarat ports and sale of illicit liquor in Gujarat. But the PM Modi government is only focused on toppling the government even though it ignored the incessantly rising inflation.
He said that before NDA’s government, diesel cost Rs 55 and petrol price was Rs 60 in 2014 but now it is over Rs 90 and Rs 110 respectively.
Why Sukhbir Badal evading investigation?
Lashing out at SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal, Kang questioned Badal that why he is evading inquiry and not appearing before SIT in Kotakpura firing incident if he is honest and nothing to conceal in this case.
He said that everyone knew the involvement of Dera Sacha Sauda in sacrilege cases of Sri Guru Granth Sahib but Badal family gave them clean chit and Sikh Sangat has been waiting for justice for seven years. But now the decisive Mann government will deliver justice to the people of Punjab in sacrilege cases and firing incidents.
He categorically said that AAP will take action against all people including senior politicians after proper inquiries as per the law and no one will be targeted as AAP is not here for political vendetta but to provide a reformed system in the state.
