Forget protests back home, Punjab AAP ministers busy electioneering in Gujarat

Early Times Report

Jammu, Dec 1: Even as massive protests by the labour unions against the allegedly wrong policies of the Aam Aadmi Party have rocked Punjab, the ministers from the neighboring state are busy electioneering in Gujarat.
Seemingly unmindful of the situation in Punjab where apart from protests by labourers, reports of spike in corruption are surfacing, the ruling AAP top brass is busy touring Gujarat in connection with the ongoing Assembly elections there.
While the Labour union workers have been staging protests outside the residence of Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann in Sangrur, with police resorting to lathicharge, the CM is away in Gujarat “trying to tell the Gujrati people that AAP model is doing wonders in Punjab.”
The protesters alleged that the AAP government has even no time to listen to their demand for increase in minimum daily wage to Rs 700 under the MNREGA (National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme) and distribution of five-marla plots to Dalits and SCs.
The protesters said the “AAP government has even not listened to their woes.” “We are the poor people who build the nation brick-by-brick but here this arrogant AAP leadership is busy with lavish lifestyle including vacations in Gujarat when Punjab is burning,” the protesters said. President of the Zameen Prapti Sangharsh Committee Mukesh Malaud told media that earlier chief minister had given them meeting but later he refused to meet and made police shower lathis on them, instead.
Earlier the labourers had held a 19-day protest in October.
Observers said the AAP model has failed in Punjab and that the party has nor prospects of wining any seats in Jammu. “For the liquor scam in Delhi and misgovernance in Punjab, the AAP is badly exposed and one can even not dream of people of Jammu supporting such party, which talks about honesty but ends up being most corrupt on every front,” said a Jammu University teacher on the condition of anonymity adding “Kejriwal model is another name for misleading people through fakery of honesty.”
The AAP government in Punjab couldn’t be contacted for comments.
