New Delhi, Aam Adami Party (AAP) on Saturday slammed the Congress for its “infighting” in Punjab, saying “Congress’ greedy naked face has now been exposed”.
Taking to Twitter, AAP national spokesperson Raghav Chadha wrote, “Looking at Congress infighting, Punjab says –Khatam! Bye Bte! Goodbye!. Congress greedy naked faced is now exposed,”.
“Congress doesn’t care about the people of Punjab. People of Punjab don’t want an unstable greedy govt of Congress,” he alleged.
Local leadership of AAP also condemned the Congress for pushing the “Punjab into darkness”
Leader of Opposition, Harpal Cheema said,” Instead of fulfilling promises, Congress ministers/MLAs are fighting for Chair.
“@INCIndia is responsible for destroying Punjab and pushing it into darkness, ‘ he said in a tweet.
APP’s reaction came after the All India Congress Committee (AICC) had called for a meeting of the state’s Congress Legislative Party on Saturday.
AICC general secretary and in-charge of Punjab affairs Harish Rawat, on Friday informed that the decision was made after the party had received “representation” from many of its MLAs in the state to “immediately convene” the meeting.
Earlier, Chief Minister Captain Amarinder had objected to the meeting and said it was called without taking him into confidence.
This comes after months of factionalism within the Punjab Congress with CM Amarinder Singh heading one camp and Punjab Congress chief Navjot Singh Sidhu leading the other.
