IEP CHANDIGARH, December 23
Punjab Congress today launched a scathing attack on the Aam Aamdi Party government in the state over appointing two rank outsiders to two important positions in the Real Estate Regulatory Authority, Punjab.
“While Aam Aadmi Party is acting like East India Company, its supremo Arvind Kejriwal is treating Punjab as an occupied colony and rehabilitating his favourite non-Punjabis in the state”, Warring said in a statement, while reacting to appointments of Satya Gopal and Rakesh Goel in RERA.
He wondered why the AAP was not able to find any Punjabi worth and competent to hold important positions in the government. He pointed out, earlier the AAP nominated mostly non-Punjabis and non-politicians to the Rajya Sabha and now it had started the process to “infiltrate” outsiders into the state administration.
“Didn’t you find any Punjabi worth the chairmanship or membership of RERA that you had to bring in people from outside?” Warring asked Kejriwal while feeling sorry for prominent and competent people in AAP Punjab who have not only been ignored but humiliated.
“This is a harsh judgement on the credibility and competence of all those Punjabis who worked hard to install AAP government in Punjab but are being scornfully ignored when time had come to reward and compensate them for hardwork”, he remarked, while expressing full sympathies with and telling them it is still not too late to correct the mistake they committed by supporting the AAP.
