Gandhis and Badals focused on protecting their political future instead of defending democracy : Malvinder Singh Kang
Congress and SAD failed to question BJP government over its ‘dictatorial’ regime and anti-people policies : Malvinder Singh Kang
Chandigarh : Launching a frontal attack on the Congress and Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has accused these parties of working only to protect the political future of their Presidents instead of cornering the BJP government over its ‘dictatorial regime’ and anti-people policies.
Addressing a press conference here, chief spokesperson of the AAP, Malvinder Singh Kang said that the BJP government has imposed a “predatory neo-liberal regime” which has heightened economic and social inequalities in the country, but, Congress and Akali Dal parties are more occupied with protecting their political future.
It is only the AAP and its supremo Arvind Kejriwal who are conscious of their responsibility to defend democracy and regularly question the BJP-led union government about its ” anti-people policies”.
He said that Congress, which is the main opposition party in the Centre did not think it necessary to hold any protest against the BJP for it’s ” unconstitutional and anti-people policies” but has directed its party workers to hold protests from block level to the national level across the country, only against ED’s summoning of party chief Sonia Gandhi.
“ The BJP government is giving favours to the corporate families and privatizing government sectors. These decisions directly affect the common people, but is not a priority for the Congress party. Saving the Gandhi family has today become more important for the Congress, he said.
Similarly, workers of the 100-year-old Akali party, are unhappy with party president Sukhbir Badal and are demanding that he should step down. But the Badal family is unwilling to relinquish control even though they know that they have been rejected by the people.
He said, when SAD was in power in Punjab and was an alliance partner with the BJP-led union government, they never raised the issue of Sikh prisoners’ release. Now that the future of the Badal family is in danger, they are diverting attention from their own performance to issues that did not concern them earlier.Meanwhile, senior AAP leader Jagtar Singh Sanghera was also present on the occasion.
