Not every party is run by dictator: AAP tells PM

Not every party is run by dictator: AAP tells PM

Chandigarh, May 24 (UNI) The Aam Aadmi Party has hit back at PM Narendra Modi for his statement calling Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann a "Kagzi Mukhya Mantri" (CM on paper). The AAP said Modi needs to look at his own party for not every political party is as dictatorial as the BJP.


AAP spokesperson Neel Garg said Friday appointing 'kagazi' CMs is the style of the BJP.
"In Madhya Pradesh they contested elections with Shivraj Singh Chouhan as the CM face, then later appointed Mohan Yadav as the CM of MP.
"Similarly in Jharkhand and Rajasthan they projected different people for the CM office but after winning the elections they imposed BJP's 'kagzi' CMs on the people," Garg said.
"On the other hand, in the AAP, we do things democratically. Before the 2022 Punjab assembly elections, we asked three crore Punjabis who they wanted to see as their CM candidate. The people of Punjab through their calls and texts selected the CM face of the AAP.
"CM Bhagwant Mann is elected by the three crore Punjabis, not just that, he is the Chief Minister to have the biggest and most historic mandate in Assembly Elections. He was sent to the assembly of Punjab with 92
MLAs by the people," the AAP Punjab leader said.

Garg continued is assertion that Mann is dearly beloved CM of Punjab. He is working dedicatedly for the progress of Punjab and the people are supporting him at every step of the way. PM Modi will be able to witness the love and support of Punjabis for Mann on June 4, Garg added.
Listing out the Punjab AAP CM's achievements, Garg said Mann is uplifting the government education system in the state, building Schools of Eminence, mohalla clinics, buying Thermal Power Plants to give free electricity to the people.
He is even providing canal water and electricity to farmers during daytime.
The AAP leader said PM Modi is highly mistaken Bhagwant Mann is not a 'kagazi' CM, he is the beloved CM of three crore Punjabis.
