Patiala: Former Chief Minister and Congress MP Amarinder Singh on Sunday alleged that two of the four Aam Aadmi Party MPs from Punjab had links with the Naxal movement.
He challenged the party to deny that they were not involved in the Naxal movement.

In a statement here, he alleged that Patiala MP Dharamvir Gandhi and Faridkot MP Sadhu Singh and another leader Balbir Singh, who is planning to contest from Patiala City vacated by Amarinder Singh after his election from Amritsar Lok Sabha constituency, were actively involved with the Communist Party of India (Marxist-Leninist).

He alleged these people were trying to exploit the alienation among the educated unemployed youth of the state in a dangerous way.

When contacted, Gandhi, who defeated Amarinder`s wife Preneet Kaur, said the question of having any link with Naxal movement was his "personal matter" and nobody should interfere in it.

Sadhu Singh and Balbir Singh could not be contacted.
