SAD asking for strict action , AAP blaming the SAD-BJP alliance, BJP pointing fingers towards AAP – a political blame game has begun in what started as desecration of the Quran in the Muslim-majority town of Malerkotla.
Delhi-based businessman Vijay Kumar claimed in front of the media on Saturday that he did it at the behest of Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) Delhi MLA Naresh Yadav who was his “friend”; but Yadav outrightly denied any role. However, Sangrur superintendent of police (SSP) Pritpal Singh said the “MLA will be summoned” based on Vijay’s claim, which came on the eve of AAP head and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal’s three-day Punjab tour.
Rejecting the charge of its MLA’sinvolvement in the Malerkotla sacrilege incident, the Aam Aadmi Party today hit out at the BJP-SAD alliance in Punjab, saying its popularity has “rattled” the ruling dispensation prompting it to “cook up” cases.
Sanjay Singh, the party’s Punjab in-charge targeted the Badals over the state police’s decision to summon its Mehrauli MLA Naresh Yadav, whose name has reportedly cropped up during the ongoing probe into the incident that had sparked violence. “Badal has cooked up this case. Dirty politics by BJP and SAD has begun in the form of conspiracies to frame our MLAs.
