AAP still mum over ‘Referendum 2020’ campaign: BJP
Punjab BJP today proved links of Aam Aadmi Party MLA and former Leader of Opposition in Punjab Vidhan Sabha, H.S. Phoolka, with the US-based organization, Sikhs for Justice (SFJ). State party vice-president Harjit Singh Grewal and state party secretary Vineet Joshi today opened the website of SFJ in front of media persons thereby providing evidence in support of BJP’s claim.
It is to be noted that the BJP had on July 9 organised a press conference and revealed Phoolka’s association with SFJ. This is the sole reason why AAP has preferred to remain silent over the issue of ‘Referendum 2020’ hoardings.
Grewal and Joshi visited the website before the media and explained that H.S. Phoolka and Navkiran Singh were made members of the Sikh Genocide Commission formed by the India unit of the SFJ in January 2008.
The webpage clearly mentions that AAP leader/spokesperson Navkiran Singh was appointed as member of the core group of Human Rights Advocates formed by the India unit of the SFJ. A joint statement issued by the core group is also displayed on the page.
“Now it is clear as to why Aam Aadmi Party has preferred to remain silent over the issue of ‘Referendum 2020’ hoardings. Earlier, AAP took sides with Simaranjit Singh Maan who had organized ‘Sarbat Khalsa’ by going against Sikh tenets and principles. AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal met the parallel Jathedar appointed by the ‘Sarbat Khalsa’; he met the Panj Pyaras who were suspended by the SGPC and stayed at the residence of Khalistan Commando Force activist Gurinder Singh Gahali in Moga. Now everybody has understood why AAP is mum over the developments”, said the BJP leaders.
