Three Aam Aadmi Party workers have allegedly sustained injuries in the clash.
The battle for Punjab took a violent turn today when workers of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) clashed in Bathinda ahead of the assembly elections in the state.
Akali Dal workers allegedly fired at Aam Aadmi Party men. Three AAP workers have allegedly sustained injuries.
As per initial reports, three people have been arrested in connection with the incident.
A CLOSE CONTEST
While for Congress and SAD, it’s a fight for survival, for AAP, a foothold in Punjab will be a step towards gaining more say in national politics.
A day ago, Delhi’s Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia told voters in Punjab that they should assume they are voting for Arvind Kejriwal as their chief minister.
“By asking people to vote for Kejriwal as Punjab chief minister, Manish Sisodia has exposed their plans. It proves AAP doesn’t trust Punjabis,” Sisodia’s counterpart in Punjab and senior Akali Dal leader Sukhbir Singh Badal said.
There have been speculations that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal could move to Punjab if his party manages to come to power in the state.
