AAP leaders from Punjab have alleged that they were prevented from entering Delhi on Sunday, while party chief Arvind Kejriwal was being questioned by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in the excise policy case.
The AAP leaders, including ministers Bram Shanker Jimpa, Dr Balbir Singh, and Harjot Singh Bains, along with MLAs Dinesh Chadha and Kuljit Randhawa, alleged that they were halted at the border and prevented from entering the national capital.
As a result, they staged demonstrations at Delhi’s Singhu border, protesting against the alleged barrier imposed by Delhi Police. The incident occurred as Kejriwal faced questioning by the CBI, and the AAP leaders from Punjab accused the authorities of restricting their movement and preventing them from showing solidarity with their party chief.
Expressing his dismay on Twitter, Punjab Education Minister Harjot Bains questioned, “Can’t we even enter our own country’s capital?”
Harjot Bains stated that the Delhi Police is preventing his car from entering Delhi.
According to Punjab Health Minister Balbir Singh, democracy in the country was being “murdered”, he wrote on Twitter.
