Amid criticism over the arrest of ally Congress MLA Sukhpal Singh Khaira, AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal said his party is fighting against drugs and not against any party or leader.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal also made it clear that his fight is not against any party or leader, but against drug addiction.
“I want to tell all these parties that we are not fighting against any party. Our fight is not against any leader. We are not against anyone. We are against drugs,” he said.
He also highlighted the rampant menace of drugs in Punjab and how it is destroying the youth and an entire generation. He also said that drug trafficking in the state will not be tolerated at any cost. He also appealed to all political parties to unite on this issue and also requested them to take action against leaders found using drugs. “I appeal to all parties to support us in the war on drugs,” he said.
Arvind Kejriwal also mentioned how Punjab was previously infamous for rampant drug addiction among its youth. Many films have also been made on the issue, he said. He later applauded Bhagwant Mann for his government’s work in curbing the drug menace in the state.
Congress MLA Khaira was arrested by the Punjab Police on Thursday in connection with the 2015 drug case from his residence in Chandigarh.
The Congress leaders had termed the police action against the Bholath MLA as a political vendetta.
