Former premier of British Columbia and Canada Health Minister Ujjal Dosanjh Sunday said that the hopes that the Aam Aadmi Party had given to the Punjabi Diaspora (NRIs) have begun to wither away and people now believe that AAP is no different from other political parties. Dosanjh, who hails from Jalandhar’s Dosanjha village, said this during the launch of his ‘autobiography’ titled ‘Journey After Midnight’.
“Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal himself is not a financially corrupt person, but there are blind spots in AAP and Punjabi people abroad have realised that politics of AAP is not different from other existing political parties.” Dosanjh said, adding that one of the AAP’s supporters from Calgary called him up to express his anger and disappointment with the party. Dosanjh said that person was promoting AAP hugely earlier.
When asked about the prospects of AAP in Punjab, which had a huge support from Punjabi NRIs, Dosanjh said the recent political happenings have been disappointing for those living abroad as well.
