“Kejriwal-Mann duo bite the dust; again”: BJP attacks AAP as Punjab government restores security 424 VVIPs after Sidhu Moosewala’s murder


Punjab’s Aam Aadmi Party government on Thursday performed a U-turn and decided to restore the security cover for 424 VIPs in the state after the gruesome murder of singer Sidhu Moosewala. This was confirmed by the Bhagwant Mann government before the Punjab and Haryana High Court.

The Punjab and Haryana High Court was hearing a petition filed by former Deputy CM OP Soni after his security was withdrawn on the orders of the Punjab government.

The decision to restore the security cover for more than 400 VIPs in the state prompted the BJP to attack AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal and Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann for their U-turn.

Accusing the duo of hypocrisy, Manjinder Singh Sirsa of the BJP tweeted, “Kejriwal-Mann duo bite the dust; again. They refuted back in High Court on their claim of reducing VIP culture in Punjab by saying that it was a temporary withdrawal @AAPPunjab cheap stunt cost Punjabis a precious life. Punjab’s youth would never forgive them for their hypocrisy.”

The AAP had come under widespread condemnation for celebrating the decision to withdraw the security cover of 424 VIPs including Moosewala. Many had highlighted how Kejriwal first paid for newspaper advertisements to announce the withdrawal of the security cover of Moosewala but wasted no time in expressing his anguish after the singer’s murder.
