Chandigarh, May 16: Aam Aadmi Party on Sunday accused Parkash Singh Badal led Punjab government of misusing the official machinery for "suppressing" its protest against the alleged food grain scam here on Monday.
AAP National Spokesperson and in-charge, Punjab party affairs, Sanjay Singh alleged that Badal is using coercive ways and means to ensure AAP does not gherao his official residence in Chandigarh on Monday to "expose" his misdeeds.
"He (Badal) can not browbeat AAP and scare its volunteers, workers and sympathisers by adopting such cheap arm twisting tactics," Singh said.
Singh claimed Badal has unleashed "reign of terror" through Punjab police on AAP volunteers and workers to create a fear psychosis among them that if they attended AAP's protest on Monday they would be booked in "false" criminal cases.
AAP had planned to gherao Badal's residence in Chandigarh tomorrow on the issue of alleged food grain scam and farmers' suicide.
