New Delhi, April 8 (Delhi Crown): Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convenor and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday took a strong exception to Haryana Power Minister Ranjit Singh’s critical remark over the newly-elected AAP MLAs in Punjab, calling them “inexperienced”.
In his remark, Singh had said that the new MLAs and ministers in Punjab won’t be able to run the state government as they “lack experience”.
“Even nurses and policemen go through training. CM and cabinet ministers have a huge responsibility for running the government. The job of administration is a different thing altogether. Arvind Kejriwal will be remote-controlling state govt from Delhi,” the Haryana Minister had said.
He further added – “Punjab’s financial situation is pretty worse. They (AAP govt ministers) are inexperienced, nobody had a prior political career. 90% of them never saw Vidhan Sabha until now. Some used to repair mobile, while some were auto-drivers.”
Reacting to Singh’s remark, Kejriwal took to twitter and said – “Brother, stop mocking at the country’s common man (Aam Aadmi). The common man will do what you all political parties couldn’t do all these 75 years, because he (common man) has a clear soul. This country trusted you politicians, but politicians broke their trust. You will see, Aam Aadmi will give a good government.”
Newly-elected Punjab AAP MLA Manwinder Singh Giaspura also tweeted – “Minister’s remarks are correct, we didn’t see Vidhan Sabha till now, we’re common people. 12 of our MLAs are doctors over 14 are advocates & 16 are engineers. We know how to govern country, instead of doing corruption like these ministers.”
