Channi said that someone should give the AAP leader Rs 5,000 so that he can buy some "nice clothes."Author : Shagun
The Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has responded to newly appointed Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi’s criticism on his clothing by asking four sharp questions. Punjab CM was responding to the Aam Aadmi Party’s criticism of Congress amid a political crisis in state.
In an interview with ABP Sanjha, Channi said that someone should give the AAP leader Rs 5,000 so that he can buy some "nice clothes."
"Do you have Rs 5,000? Everyone has it. Give it to him (Kejriwal) as well...at least he should get some nice clothes. His salary is 250,000, can't he get some nice clothes," said Channi.
After this, the nation convener of Aam Aadmi Party took to Twitter and said it doesn't matter if Channi doesn't like his attire because the public does. He also inquired about the Punjab chief minister's promises of employment generation, loan waiver for farmers, ensuring justice in the sacrilege case, and taking action against tainted ministers, MLAs and officers.
“Channi Sahab, you don't like my clothes. No problem. People like it. Leave the clothes. When will you fulfil these promises? 1) When will you give employment to every unemployed...2) When will you waive the loans of farmers... 3) Why not send the guilty of sacrilege to jail...4) When will action be taken against tainted ministers, MLAs and officers,” read the tweet by Kejriwal.
Notably, Aam Aadmi Party- Punjab's largest opposition party, has stepped up its criticism of the Punjab Congress before the next Assembly elections. AAP won 20 seats out of a total of 117 in the 2017 Punjab Assembly elections, while the Congress won 77 seats.
Kejriwal visited Punjab for two days last month, congratulating Channi on his appointment as the new chief minister but giving a five-point challenge to the new administration.
The five point agenda was- taking action on the Bargari incident, fulfil the promises made by Capt Amarinder, give unemployment allowance to the unemployed and waive the loans of farmers, cancel the power purchase agreement and sack tainted officials.
