Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, taking on Punjab CM Amarinder Singh, said the Congress’s Amarinder Singh has joined hands with the BJP and is upset that the Aam Aadmi Party government has not converted the nine stadiums in the city to open jails. Kejriwal’s party had earlier said Prime Minister Narendra Modi was upset over the issue. The Punjab unit of AAP had also alleged that the Punjab Chief Minister is being controlled by PM Modi.
“The Punjab Chief Minister has made allegations against me that I have passed the black laws in Delhi. How can he do such a low-level politics in this fragile situation? It’s not up to state governments to implement it. Had it been so, why would farmers of the country hold talks with Centre,” Kejriwal was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
“The reason behind Captain Sahab’s allegation is that we did not allow the nine stadiums in Delhi to be converted into jails,” Kejriwal said, adding, “The Centre had plans to put farmers in these stadiums. They are upset with me as I didn’t give permission for making them jails,” said the Delhi CM.
AAP’s Punjab unit, in a statement on Tuesday, had said Amarinder Singh and the BJP had “joined hands to make completely false allegations” about the Delhi government passing the farm laws.
The Punjab CM had hit out at Delhi government in his sharp criticism.
“Do they have no shame? They failed to pass any amendment in the Delhi Assembly to negate the central laws, as was done in Punjab. And now they have officially notified the agricultural legislations. The party’s true intent and affiliation has been exposed,” Amarinder Singh had said.
