AAP leader and former journalist Jarnail Singh said that he along with some of the AAP workers will go to Punjab for election campaign. Speaking to Millennium Post he said that AAP is all set to win around 9 Lok Sabha seats out of 13 in Punjab.
‘There is a huge support for AAP in Punjab and after Arvind kejriwal three days campaigan recenlty, our party is getting more support from the people,’ said Singh.
‘Corruption is the core issue in entire county but in Punjab access of drug among the youths is major concern for our party. Also electricity and facility for the farmers will be address by our party,’ said AAP.
Meanwhile he rejected that there is any scope for communl politics in Punjab. 'Communalism does not exist any more in Punjab it was a matter of past. People in Punjab are looking for development and only AAP can provide this to them,’ said Singh.
Punjab’s 13 Lok Sabha constituencies go to polls on 30 April. The main fight is between the ruling Shiromani Akali Dal-Bharatiya Janata Party alliance and the Congress. The AAP, which does not have much base in Punjab, has fielded candidates in all constituencies.
Singh had hit the headlines in April 2009 had hurled a shoe at P Chidambaram, who was the then home minister, in protest against his remarks on the clean chit to Congress leaders in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case.
