Punjab Congress on Sunday criticised industry and trade manifesto released by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and countered his “promise to promote the industry in Punjab on the pattern of Delhi” by listing out his government’s failures in the national capital.
In a joint statement, the Congress leaders said, “If the AAP government’s track record in Delhi was anything to go by, trade and industry in Punjab had a lot to worry about.”
The Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC) leaders also advised Kejriwal to set his own house in order before setting his sights on Punjab. “If they (AAP) are really planning to do in Punjab what they are doing in Delhi, then there is really no hope for trade and industry in this state,” said the Congress leaders.
Congress leaders Rana Gurjit Singh, Kewal Singh Dhillon and O P Soni, who are also industrialists and businessmen, stated that all sectors of economic growth, industries in Delhi are struggling to survive under the AAP regime and termed the AAP’s promise of ending inspector raj “a joke”.
