Punjab, Chandigarh, Sept 25, 2016: Women activists of the Congress party on Sunday greeted Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal with black flags when he reached the Sikh holy city of Amritsar and Jalandhar to campaign for his Aam aadmi Party and asked him to go back.

The activists were protesting against the alleged involvement of Aam Aadmi Party legislators in Delhi in crimes against women. They were holding black flags and placards, saying “Kejriwal Go Back”.

Punjab Mahila Congress President Mamta Dutta said in Amritsar that AAP legislators were involved in outraging the modesty of women and the leader of such persons would not be tolerated in Punjab.

As Kejriwal landed in Amritsar, the Congress activists gathered there staged the protest by raising black flags and shouting slogans against him and the AAP.

They were pushed back by policemen when they tried to intercept his car convoy.

Dutta alleged that she suffered injuries on her face when she was “pushed” and “shoved” by the police during the protest.

After landing at the Sri Guru Ramdas International Airport, Kejriwal straightway went to Jalandhar where he was scheduled to attend Agrasen Jayanti Samaroh.

In Jalandhar too, the Congress women workers raised black flags and shouted slogans against him.

Placards read “Delhi ko barbad kiya…Punjab nahi (You have ruined Delhi… Don’t do it in Punjab).”

Earlier this month, Kejriwal faced similar protests by the Bharatiya Janata Party, Akali Dal and Congress activists in the state.

Kejriwal has been frequently visiting Punjab, where the assembly elections are due early next year. (IANS)

New Delhi, Aug 21, 2017: Aam Admi Party leaves no stone unturned to turn the competition in their favour. From targeting youth to women and the common man, they have now changed their focus to the Muslim community in Delhi. Recently, AAP’s sensational move stirred the social media.

A pamphlet asking Muslim residents in Bawana assembly constituency of Delhi to vote for Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in the upcoming Bawana bypoll was shared in the social media. The pamphlet professed an appeal to Muslim brothers by a Muslim cabinet minister of AAP, Imran Hussain.

The pamphlet desecrated the vote in the Uttar Pradesh assembly election, indicating the readers that their wrong choice of the vote could worsen the state of affairs in the vicinity. It said that Muslims can’t be swayed if they join hands and vote together.

The message out rightly professed Islamic ideologue, rather more brazenly. With statements like, “Our ancestors (Mughals) have ruled India for a thousand years and that Delhi belongs to Muslims”, nothing more is lucid than the communal propaganda of Kejriwal. What pride should one take in the fact that our land was once ruled by non-natives for several centuries?.

It also vouched for the pamphlet to be disseminated across Muslim shrines (Dargah) and every Muslim hook and corner.

The shameless vouching for votes does not even end here; it also demeaned others in the competition by calling them their enemies. Does this mean every Non-Muslim party is an ‘enemy’? Messages like will do nothing good than arousing animosity among the diverse sects.

The blatantly and flagrantly communal pitch of the pamphlet is noticeably an infringement of Supreme Court order that bans drum up support for votes in the name of any community. The order calls for disqualification of the candidate owing to such appeal.

Tajinder Bagga, a Delhi BJP spokesperson solicited a case to be registered against AAP supremo and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for dispensing such communal appeal.

Munish Raizada, former NRI AAP convener also expressed his views regarding the poster;

Imam, the voice in the poster, however, denied the claims made. He has called the poster ‘fake’ and demanded police action for the same.

Off late, Arvind Kejriwal was also seen making intimidating remarks while talking to the voters in the by-election that AAP will not work under BJP/Congress leadership.

The party which maintained the common man status in its initial stage is now a party full of goons. What obvious assertion does one need? Isn’t the poster pitching for communal stance enough to prove that in the so-called Aam Admi Party, nothing is Aam (common) except for one thing and that is double-dealing.
