Kejri sounds poll bugle; blasts SAD, Congress

 Sounding the poll bugle, Delhi chief minister announced he will launch a commission of inquiry against the Badal family to investigate their alleged decade of misrule and send them behind bars.

Sporting in a yellow turban, as his election rhetoric in Punjab on Thursday got sharper against the ruling Badal’s, Kejriwal said, “How can I be scared of Badal when I was not scared of Badal’s ‘Taau (paternal uncle)’ — Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who sent CBI to raid me? It is Mulayam, Mayawati or Badal who can get scared of CBI. I am not.”


The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has four MP’s in Punjab, two of them disgruntled and suspended. The AAP fancies its chances in the upcoming Punjab elections in less than a year away.

Several political parties including the mainstream parties Congress, Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) and AAP held separate political rallies in state’s Muktsar on the occasion of the Maghi mela, an annual event. 

Amid reports of Manpreet Badal, the estranged nephew of the Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal, joining the Congress tomorrow, or anytime soon, Punjab Congress chief Capt Amarinder Singh pledged to oust the Badal’s of their 10-years of rule.
Perhaps an indicator of the growing strength of the AAP, the Congress and the Akali Dal focused on the AAP in their poll speeches.

Capt Singh said Badal claims to be a representative of the farmers and during his regime the farmers had suffered the worst.

 “While Badal is himself getting richer and richer and building 7-star hotels in every city across India, the farmers are committing suicide”, he pointed out. In order to save Punjab, we need to save its agriculture and its farmers,” he added.
