Mohali: Punjab Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal Friday hit out at Congress and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), alleging both the parties have a "tacit understanding" for the upcoming assembly elections in the state.
Interacting with mediapersons during the ISBT inauguration here, Badal took potshots Congress state unit president Amarinder Singh for suddenly "exhibiting love" for Punjab and meeting the Prime Minister for issues concerning the state.
Earlier in the day, Singh along with a Congress delegation met PM Narendra Modi to raise the issue of economic plight of debt-ridden Punjab farmers.
"But where was Captain (Amarinder) earlier and why didn't he show this concern during the previous years," Badal asked.
The Akali leader accused the former Punjab chief minister of doing "all this" with an eye on elections and described his new posturing as "nothing but a political stunt".
Slamming AAP leader and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, the Deputy CM described both Congress and AAP as part of the "same stock" who have "tacit understanding" to contest assembly elections as a "friendly match".
Badal said Kejriwal only concentrated on holding rallies in Jalalabad and Majitha constituencies and never bothered to hold a gathering in the constituency of Singh which "proved" that AAP has an "unholy alliance" with Congress.
