At Aam Aadmi Party’s farmers rally in Baghapurana of Moga on Sunday, it was Captain Amarinder Singh and sacked district convenor Sucha Singh Chhotepur who were the prime targets of AAP’s comedians turned politicians- MP Bhagwant Mann and new state convenor Gurpreet Singh Ghuggi.

Even the party chief Arvind Kejriwal commented on Punjab Congress chief Captain Amarinder Singh and called him an ‘advocate of Badals’.

Kejriwal while addressing a massive crowd of farmers said, “Why does the Captain feel the heat when I say I will send Badals to jail? Captain ko mirchi kyun lagti hai jab main kehta hun ki Badal jail jayenge. It is because he is their advocate. Vakeel hai ye Badlon ka. When I said I will send Badals to jail, Captain said he will throw me out of Punjab. It clearly shows that he is hands in glove with Akalis. For years both these Congress and Akalis have sucked blood of farmers and compelled them to commit suicides.”

Then it was comedian turned politician MP Bhagwant Mann who took on Captain for latter’s alleged statement that ‘two chittas- ate away Punjab. One is whitefly that damaged cotton crop and the other white topiwallahs.’

“He remembers two chittas – whitefly and AAP topis not chitta (heroin) sold by Bikram Majithia. It is because they are chacha bhatija,” said Bhagwant Mann and crowds rolled in laughs.

The new state convenor Gurpreet Singh Ghuggi said, “It is so hilarious when Captain talks about agriculture. Has he ever seen a field or knows how sugarcane is harvested? Maharajas should not talk about farmers.”

Ghuggi even remarked on his predecessor- sacked state convenor Sucha Singh Chhotepur and said, “When a tree grows some leaves fell on their own, others have to be pruned. Today’s rally is a befitting reply for those who said jhaadu teeley teeley ho gaya.”(The broom has scattered).

Mann also mocked at Congress saying that ‘party is now like a 80-90 year old patient whom doctors discharge from hospital saying there is no hope and family should serve them till death’. “Congress budhi ho gai hai. Eh Congress assi-nabbey saal da buzurg hai hun jinu doctor kehande hai ghar le jaao, sewa karo. Kuch ni bacheya ehde vich hun, he said and crowds were in splits again.

Even the party’s manifesto committee chief Kanwar Singh Sandhu, who goes with the reputation of being a serious man, displayed satirical side on Sunday. While promising farmers that Punjab will be free of stray animals menace he said, “Koi aawara leader bhi nahi dikhega Punjab mein.” (Not only stray animals, we will get rid of stray politicians too)
