Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh on Monday rejected his Delhi counterpart Arvind Kejriwal’s claims and allegations against the state government, saying it was a re-run of false promises and cheap attacks on the Congress that later had resorted to in the 2017 Assembly elections.
“The people of Punjab were wise to your deceptions then, and can see through them again now… Kejriwal’s lies will be exposed again, just as they had been exposed in the 2017 Assembly polls. Punjab knows what a first-rate liar and master of deceit you (Kejriwal) are,” said the Chief Minister, in a response to Kejriwal’s criticism at a mahapanchayat yesterday.
Trashing his Delhi counterpart’s allegation of the Congress government failing to fulfil its poll promises, he said it was ridiculous to compare his government’s track record of over 84 per cent promises implemented with that of the Delhi Government’s less than 25 per cent of 2015 manifesto commitments fulfilled in 2020. “If this is the Delhi model you (Kejriwal) are promising in Punjab then my people are better off without it,” he added.

Focus on delhi, fulfil poll announcements
Instead of indulging in deceitful claims and talking of ‘badla’, Arvind Kejriwal should focus on Delhi, which is still waiting for him to fulfil even 50 per cent of his poll promises.
