BATHINDA: The Youth Akali Dal workers and Aam Aadmi Party workers clashed at the AAP MP Bhagwant Mann rally at Malout town of district Muktsar on Saturday afternoon. The situation turned into free for all when some youth Akali workers objected to Bhagwant Mann taking on SAD president Sukhbir Badal and his union minister wife Harsimrat Badal. Bhagwant Mann and Faroidkot MP Sadhu Singh had to evacuate safely by AAP workers. The fight continued for nearly 10 minutes wherein the chairs were tossed up. One of the AAP workers sustained injury on his arm. Angered over it the AAP workers held dharna.
AAP MP Bhagwant Mann assailed the Akjali Dal for causing disturbance in his rally. He said our workers never go to the SAD rally. It is democracy and everybody has the right to put his point. Akali Dal leaders speak a lot about our party and AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal but we never tried to disturb their rally”. He said we will not sit back and will raise our voice against this. An Akali worker said Bhagwant Mann was talking about Sukhbir and Harsimrat Badal in bad taste and some of the workers raised objection over it and it is the AAP workers who clashed with our men.
