Clearing the air on “concerns” raised by PPCC Chief Amarinder Singh on the possibility of national Convener of AAP, Arvind Kejriwal taking up Punjab CM post, party official spokesperson Sukhpal Singh Khaira categorically stated that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal would never become the Chief Minister of Punjab and AAP’s Chief Miniterial face indeed would be a Punjabi .
While responding to Punjab Congress president Captain Amarinder Singh’s claim that he would not allow a non Punjabi to become the Chief Minister of Punjab, Khaira said “Since Captain has already accepted his humiliating defeat in the forthcoming assembly poll, let us ensure him once again, that Kejriwal is not at all interested to leave Delhi to become the Chief Minister of Punjab and AAP would project only a Punjabi as the next CM of the state.”
He further on clarified that AAP leadership as well as Kejriwal himself cleared the air that he would not leave Delhi and will not shift in Punjab to become the Chief Minister of the border state.
“Yes, Kejriwal would stay in Punjab to ensure AAP emerges victorious so as to take party’s mission in pan-India,” Khaira added. Further on Khaira questioned back Captain on his take on AAP’s Punjabi CM “Now Captain should clear whether he will welcome AAP’s Punjabi Chief Minister.”
