Chandigarh, Sep 15 (SocialNews.XYZ) Launching an attack on Congress for its silence over BJP's poaching attempts in Punjab, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Thursday called Congress a 'B-team' of the saffron party and said that the party is clandestinely working for it to cliff off the progress and development by any means.
Finance Minister Harpal Singh Cheema told the media here that it "is humorous that Congress, which was the latest victim of BJP's poaching in Goa yesterday, dared to question AAP party for proof rather than attacking the Modi government for its wicked politics and toppling governments in various states".
Cheema demanded a free and fair investigation from a sitting judge of the Supreme Court into the case of horse-trading of Congress MLAs in Goa, Karnataka and Madhya Pradesh, including the horse-trading attempt of AAP MLAs in Punjab and Delhi.
He said that Congress President Sonia Gandhi is facing an ED probe and to save her, the party is afraid to utter anything against BJP. "The only aim of Congress is now to stop AAP somehow as directed by BJP, which is afraid of the growing popularity of the party's supremo Arvind Kejriwal across the country."
Lashing out at the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD), Cheema said that SAD was an alliance of NDA for long and "it now wants to return to the BJP fold again and that's why Akali leaders are corroborating BJP's statements".
"Even they did not object to BJP's nefarious tactics of trying to topple the AAP government after offering Rs 25 crore to the AAP legislators in Punjab, the Finance Minister added.
