Bathinda (Punjab) [India], Sept. 8 (ANI): Addressing a public rally here on Thursday, Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee president Captain Amarinder Singh went hammer and thongs at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal saying he would fight against the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convener and would pack him back to Delhi after defeating him. "Kejri, who is CM of Delhi, now says that he will come and see Punjab. Let Kejriwal come, I assure you that I will fight the election against him, and 'saale nu kut ke pejannge wapas' (will thrash and throw him out of Punjab)," said Amarinder. He further said two things have destroyed Punjab. "First, the drugs, and second, these white capped AAP people. They came here and plundered lakhs and crores from the people of Punjab by offering elections tickets, and are misbehaving with the Punjab women also. Don't this Kejri (Kejriwal) and his party have any self respect," asked the former Punjab chief minister. Earlier today, Kejriwal, who is on a four-day visit to the state, accused Punjab Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal of preparing "fake CDs" against AAP. "Elections are approaching in Punjab, and only four-five months have been left. People had warned us that in run-up to the elections Sukhbir Badal would start conspiring against us; fake CDs will come, allegations will be levelled, and people will stand against us. All these have started happening," Kejriwal told the media in Ludhiana. "I got to know that Sukhbir Badal has got 63 fake CDs prepared against us and has even hired a company for doing it," said Kejriwal, "but, I am very happy that the people of Punjab are very smart. They understand the conspiracy and game plan of the Badals." Taking a jibe on the SAD government, Kejriwal said, "They will make two to three CDs everyday, and will play it on their own PTC channel." He further added, "The people of Punjab are really smart and understand that Sukhbir Badal has done everything. I have come here and will stay here until I ensure that they are sent to jail." Stating that the farmers in Punjab are in very bad condition, and are committing suicide, Kejriwal said, "We have prepared a blue print in our manifesto for the wellbeing of the farmers and their families. We will waive off farmers' loan and rate of interest." He appealed to everyone to reach Nawi Dana Mandi at Bagha Purana in Moga on September 11 at 2 p.m. for the launch of a Farmers' Manifesto. (ANI)
