Chandigarh, March 16, 2022: BJP national general secretary Tarun Chugh today lambasted the AAP leadership for squandering crores of rupees on a swearing-in ceremony of a "king".
In a statement, Chugh said while the people of Punjab expected the entire Cabinet to be sworn-in, the AAP leadership chose only to celebrate chief minister Bhagwant Mann. He said AAP has set another example of misuse of state money by spending a huge amount on advertisements and making the CM's swearing-in function so demonstrative.
Chugh took exception to the fact that many AAP MLAs have been disrupting the working of hospitals and schools before being sworn in as MLAs.
He said the brute majority that AAP has got must not play a disruptive role in the state. "Punjab is a sensitive state and AAP should realise its responsibility", Chugh said.
He said the AAP chief minister should focus on deteriorating the law and order situation in the state and stop incidents of sacrilege taking place in Punjab.
