Elderly man gifts bottle to Bhagwant Mann!
SANGRUR: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader and Sangrur MP Bhagwant Mann, who had been poked on his alleged drinking habit, received a surprise gift — a bottle — from an elderly man during a public meeting at Retgarh village on Saturday evening.
The bottle gifted by Gulzar Singh contained desi ghee. He advised Mann to consume ghee to keep himself fit for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
Mann was holding a villagelevel meeting ahead of the party’s Barnala rally scheduled on January 20 where AAP convener and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal will address the party workers.
“I just want to give a message that Punjabi youths should shun liquor and take to cow’s desi ghee. Mann is the man who can guide the youth and make them aware about the ill-effects of liquor. Desi ghee will give him (Mann) strength to campaign for the Lok Sabha elections,” said Gulzar.
Mann, who humbly accepted the gift, claimed that the elderly man has promised to support him in the Lok Sabha elections.
“The gesture of babaji shows that people love me. The gift proves that opposition parties are just making false propaganda to defame me,” said Mann.
In 2016, suspended member of AAP and MP Harinder Singh Khalsa had complained to Lok Sabha speaker Sumitra Mahajan about Mann’s alleged drinking habit. Khalsa wrote to the speaker, requesting her that his seat in the Lok Sabha be changed as Mann, who sits next to him, stinks of alcohol.
ALL SET FOR BARNALA RALLY
Mann said more than 60,000 workers from Sangrur and Faridkot constituencies will participate in the Barnala rally.
LISTEN TO CONGRESS LEGISLATORS ON DRUGS ISSUE: MANN TO CAPT
CHANDIGARH: Aam Aadmi Party leader Bhagwant Mann on Sunday slammed chief minister Capt Amarinder Singh for turning a deaf ear on the drug issue.
“The issue of police and civil officers shielding the liquor mafia raised by Zira MLA Kulbir Singh Zira is shocking. If the chief minister does not want to listen to issues raised by the opposition party, he must lend an ear to his party’s legislators,” Mann said in a statement.
The Sangrur Member Parliament (MP) said that before Zira, another Congress MLA Surjeet Singh Dhiman had raised the issue of drugs being sold by influential people during the present regime.
