On a day when Arvind Kejriwal, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief and Delhi Chief Minister, accused Punjab Congress chief Capt Amarinder Singh and his family of keeping black money in Swiss banks, he exhorted people to take cash for votes from other parties but vote for AAP in the state.

Kejriwal even shared tips on how to get cash for votes and what should be the price of a vote, according to a report in Hindi daily Dainik Bhaskar. Addressing people at Kot Shamir in Bhatinda, Kejriwal told his supporters to take money if they are offered from other political parties.

The report quotes him as saying that the cost of a single vote earlier was Rs 3000. But because of inflation, he told supporters to ask for Rs 5000 and that too in new currency notes. “Take money from all, but vote for AAP,” the Delhi CM said. The AAP chief also asked his party workers to prepare for the election battle in Punjab and get at least 100 voters each.

This is not the first time when Kejriwal has asked voters to accept money from all parties but vote for AAP. He had made similar statements even during the Delhi Assembly election. One doesn’t know if the voters actually did that, but Kejriwal’s popularity certainly soared.

In view of the Punjab Assembly election 2017, Kejriwal has launched attacks against his opponents on many fronts. While at the Centre, he is accusing Prime Minister Narendra Modi of carrying out the “biggest scam” of India in the name of demonetisation, in Punjab he has accused Capt Amarinder Singh and his family of having illegal money in Swiss banks.

On Monday, Kejriwal even released several account numbers, claiming they were the Swiss account numbers of Amarinder Singh and his family members.

Meanwhile, the Supreme Court today dismissed Arvind Kejriwal’s plea seeking a stay on the trial court proceedings in the criminal defamation case filed by Arun Jaitley against him.

    He is clearly violating EC norms and must be disqualified from his offices and also from contesting in elections.
