The Shiromani Akali Dal leader and Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) member S. Jagdeep Singh Kahlon has strongly dismissed the allegations leveled by AAP MLA Mr. Jarnail Singh on naming of Baba Banda Singh Bahadur Bridge in Delhi and said that like his leader Mr Arvind Kejriwal he is also using false pretext to save skin of his leader.
Addressing newsmen at the site of the Barapulla bridge which has been renamed as Baba Banda Singh Bahadur Bridge by Delhi MLA and DSGMC General Secretary S. Manjinder Singh Sirsa, S. Jagdeep Singh Kahlon said that Jarnail Singh cannot see the board of Barapulla which is still visible on the spot. He said that he is playing dirty politics over the issue only to save image of his leader Mr. Arvind Kejriwal who is a blatant liar and who tried to mislead the people of Delhi on renaming this bridge after the legend Baba Banda Singh Bahadur.
- Kahlon said that it was surprising that when Mr. Kejriwal had announced to rename the bridge, tall claims were made by the AAP leadership that this will be renamed in couple of days but after so many months this government failed to keep commitment made by its leadership. He said that now S. Sirsa had taken the initiative and renamed this bridge after the name of Baba Banda Singh Bahadur, Mr. Jarnail instead of thanking the SAD leadership is trying to mislead the people by resorting to cheap lies. He said that people of the Delhi are wise enough to understand the politics of the AAP and they also understand its diversionary tactics.
- Kahlon urged Mr. Jarnail Singh that instead of playing such dirty tricks, he and other AAP leadership should accept failure of their leadership in keeping their commitment. He also reminded Mr. Jarnail Singh that leave aside renaming the bridge, the AAP government even failed to provide permission for installing a statue of Baba Banda Singh Bahadur as per their announcement.
The following DSGMC Members S. Harjeet Singh Pappa, S. Sarvjit Singh virk & S. Gurmeet Singh Bhatia and Akali Leaders S. Manvinder Singh Bunny, S. Lakhbir Singh, S. Balwant singh & S. Khushvinder Singh were present on this occasion.
