Firing a fresh salvo at the Congress Party for appointing Kamal Nath as the party general secretary and in-charge of Punjab, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Monday accused the grand old party of not being bothered about the state and only caring about people with money and muscle power.
“Appointing Kamal Nath as the charge of Punjab, the Congress has clearly sent a message that it doesn’t care about the victims of 1984. It doesn’t care about Punjab, it only cares about the people who have money power and muscle power,” AAP leader H S Phoolka said.
Accussing Kamal Nath, Phoolka said that he (Kamal Nath) was the one leader, who was leading the mob at Gurudwara Rakabganj Sahib on November 1, 1984 which set the Gurduwara on fire.
The Congress Party yesterday made important changes in its leadership in three states, including Punjab and Uttar Pradesh, where the polls are due to be held next year.
The Congress appointed senior leader Ghulam Nabi Azad as the state in-charge of Uttar Pradesh and Kamal Nath as state in-charge of Punjab and Haryana respectively.
