Dubbing the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) as traitor to the farmers' cause, Punjab Congress President Sunil Jakhar said on Wednesday that the role of Arvind Kejriwal's party in instigating violence at the Red Fort on Tuesday has been totally exposed with its own member, Amrik Micky, clearly seen at the historic monument with a Khalsa flag.
Nailing AAP's 'lie' on its involvement in the Red Fort violence, Jakhar said that contrary to AAP spokesperson Raghav Chadha's claim that his party had no connection with Amrik, the latter's Facebook page shows him being officially inducted into the party by Jarnail Singh, a Punjab AAP leader, in the presence of their national spokesperson Sanjay Singh on January 8, 2020.
The video is also available on Jarnail Singh's Facebook page, pointed out the Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC) chief, adding that in fact, Amrik's page also shows a picture of him unofficially being made to join AAP by Jarnail Singh earlier on December 28, 2019.
He also urged the Election Committee to derecognise the "party of goons, criminals and liars".
Kejriwal and his party have lost all right to continue in office in Delhi after this expose, said the PPCC chief, adding that the Delhi Chief Minister, who was quick to implement one of the farm laws days before the farmers began their march to Delhi in November 2020, is clearly working on the directives of the BJP to weaken and malign the farmers' fight for justice.
The Facebook profile of Amrik shows multiple photos of him being linked with AAP.
If Amrik is indeed a BJP member, as claimed by Raghav Chadha, then the Facebook videos and pictures clearly indicate a complicity between the AAP and the BJP, at whose behest Kejriwal's party has been trying to persistently and continuously weaken the farmers' agitation for the past several weeks, said Jakhar.
