Punjab Assembly Polls turning into a hate ground for politics

Ahead of the polls, Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi on Tuesday had said, “Don’t let UP, Bihar ke bhaiya enter Punjab”. While he made the remark, Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi could be seen standing by him smiling and applauding.

The news: On February 15, Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi, along with Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi, addressed a rally in Ropar, district Rupnagar, Punjab. During his address, Channi spread hate against the people of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar living in Punjab and called for drawing them out of the state. Soon after the remarks, many political leaders came down heavy on the CM’s remark.

What they are saying: Bhartiya Janta Party has hit back Congress, saying the chief minister has insulted people from UP and Bihar. Priyanka Gandhi has insulted the people of UP where the Congress is fighting the polls.

  • Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal also slammed Channi’s remark and said, “It is very shameful. We strongly condemn comments aimed at any individual or any particular community. Priyanka Gandhi also belongs to UP, so she is also a bhaiya.”
  • Taking a dig at BJP and AAP, Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Tuesday said that wearing a turban on stage, doesn’t make them ‘Sardar’ (Sikh).
  • “PM Modi and Kejriwal come to Punjab and wear turbans on stage. Merely wearing a turban doesn’t make them Sardars,” Priyanka said in conversation with a leading news agency during her roadshow in Amritsar.
  • The Congress leader said, “Both of them were born out of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS). One started an agitation that was backed by RSS, the other was an RSS member. They’re the same.”

Punjab is going to the polls on February 20 for all 117 seats.
