Calling Punjab Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal a ‘Gappi’ (liar), AAP state convener Gurpreet Singh Waraich on Wednesday alleged that the people are paying “heavily” for the SAD president’s “unrealistic ideas”. “The people of Punjab are paying heavily for the Deputy Chief Minister’s unrealistic ideas, such as running amphibious bus-rides in the state,” he said after launching AAP’s ‘Sukhbir Da Gapp, AAP Da Sach’ campaign here.
The AAP leader said he had come to see the amphibious bus being run at the Harike Pattan Lake on the invitation of Zira Assembly constituency candidate Gurpreet Singh Gora. “There was nobody at the site to provide information about the bus. The stand was locked and no visitor was allowed to enter the area,” he claimed.
During the launch of the bus earlier this month, the Deputy Chief Minister had said the project would boost tourism in the area and also announced that an amphibious bus-ride will be launched in Bathinda.
“Punjab does not need such blunders in the name of so called development. People expect the government to provide basic facilities to all sections of society,” Waraich said.
“Sukhbir is wasting the hard earned money of tax payers of the state. All this is being done just to get media attention,” he alleged, adding AAP will expose Sukhbir’s lies in the coming days through the campaign. Attacking Sukhbir on his amphibious bus project, Gora said his so called “dream project” was of no good to the people.
