AAM AADMI Party (AAP) announced to start a toll-free number to report against drugs in its rally held in Baba Bakal on Thursday.

While the party often attracts handsome crowd in its rallies, some chairs, however, remained vacant during party MP Bhagwant Mann’s address.

“We will start a 24-hour toll-free number where a person can give information about smuggling of drugs and drug smugglers. It will make every citizen of Punjab an agent against drug smugglers. This will end the menace of drugs in Punjab,” said Mann while accusing the SAD-BJP government of “promoting” drugs in the state.

Speaking on the occasion, state convenor Sucha Singh Chhotepur asked party workers to back all the candidates selected so far.

“We should stand strongly behind all candidates to make them victorious,” he said.

He had expressed his displeasure on the first list of 19 candidates released by the party earlier this month. He was also missing when the party declared the second list of 13 nominees today. No party leader from Delhi attended the rally.
