Amarinder hits back at AAP on Bhindranwale posters in Punjab

Chandigarh, Feb 12 (IANS) Punjab Congress president Amarinder Singh on Friday hit back at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal over the Bhindranwale posters issue, saying the AAP leader was trying to put on him the blame for something done by his own partymen.

Posters with photographs of slain Khalistan ideologue Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale and Kejriwal had appeared in some parts of Punjab. Kejriwal blamed the Congress and its Punjab unit president for the mischief.

Rubbishing Kejriwal’s accusations, Amarinder said: “Given the fact that he (Kejriwal) is a congenital and compulsive liar, I am not surprised over his backing out and blaming me for what his party has done.”

“It is a classic case of running with the hare and hunting with the hounds. First, they (AAP) circulated posters asking people to celebrate Bhindrawale’s birthday and when it boomeranged on them, Kejriwal tried to back out in his characteristic fugitive manner he is well known for,” Amarinder said.

The former chief minister dared the Aam Aadmi Party to lodge a case in the matter and get it investigated.

“If it (AAP) does not do so, I will get it done after the Congress forms the next government in Punjab. We will not allow them to play a double game of stealthily playing the extremist agenda and publicly denying it later,” he said.

Amarinder said the AAP was “pursuing an extremely dangerous agenda of ultra left and right extremism” in Punjab, where assembly polls will be held in February next year.
