Terming AAP’s tie-up with Lok Insaaf Party (LIP) as an alliance of “truth and honesty”, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Sunday the combine would defeat the “corrupt regime” of SAD-BJP in Punjab so that people could live their lives peacefully.

Kejriwal, who was honoured by LIP leaders Simarjit Singh Bains and Balwinder Singh Bains, said people’s response to the alliance indicated that the people have already made up their minds to ensure defeat of the SAD-BJP-Congress nexus and eradicate the “mafia rule”.

Hailing the battle waged by the Bains brothers against “corruption” in the Akali government, the AAP chief said the time was ripe for people to raise their voice against irregularities and malpractices.

Launching a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Kejriwal said demonetisation was a wrong decision implemented in a wrong manner.

Several people have already lost their lives while standing in queues outside banks, he claimed.

“Modi has done so to benefit his industrialist friends and it is a scam of more than Rs eight lakh crore,” he said.

“On the one hand, BJP leaders are spending Rs 500 crore on marriages of their daughters and on the other, common man is forced to spend just Rs 2.5 lakh on marriages of their children,” he said, referring to the recent weddings of daughters of Union minister Nitin Gadkari and former Karnataka minister Janardhana Reddy.

Addressing the gathering, Simarjit Singh Bains said that his party always waged a war against corruption and now under the alliance with AAP, a decisive battle against corruption would be fought to eradicate it once for all.

AAP leader Sanjay Singh said, “SAD and Congress leaders are right when they say, AAP has no experience. Yes, we admit that we have no experience of looting the state exchequer, we have no experience to run the mafia in mining, liquor, cable and transport sectors. But we have immense experience to eradicate corruption, which has already been proved in Delhi.”
