Aam Aadmi Party accuses Badal govt of trying to suppress protest

Chandigarh: Aam Aadmi Party on Sunday accused Parkash Singh Badal led Punjab government of misusing the official machinery for "suppressing" its protest against the alleged food grain scam in Chandigarh on Monday.

AAP National Spokesperson and in-charge, Punjab party affairs, Sanjay Singh alleged that Badal is using coercive ways and means to ensure AAP does not gherao his official residence in Chandigarh tomorrow to "expose" his misdeeds.

"He (Badal) can not browbeat AAP and scare its volunteers, workers and sympathisers by adopting such cheap arm twisting tactics," Singh said.

Singh claimed Badal has unleashed "reign of terror" through Punjab police on AAP volunteers and workers to create a fear psychosis among them that if they attended AAP's protest tomorrow they would be booked in "false" criminal cases.
