Chandigarh, Feb 2: In a sensational revelation, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi, in a poll rally in Punjab on Thursday, said that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was promoting 'anti-social' elements behind the recent bomb blast incident in the state.
"Recently, six people died in a bomb blast in Punjab. Kejriwal, the CM of Delhi, is helping people behind these blasts. (Kuch din pehle bomb blast mein 6 log maare gye.Kejriwal jo Delhi ke CM h, wo in shaktiyon ko madad kar rhe h,unhe khada hone de rhe hain)," said Gandhi.
A bomb blast rocked a Congress rally in Maur Mandi near Bathinda recently. Six people died and several were left injured in the attack. Police are still investigating the case and are not ruling out the involvement of terror groups behind the bomb blast.
During his election rally, the Congress VP also interacted with voters in Sangrur. Punjab is all set to vote for its next assembly elections on February 4. This time, Kejriwal's political outfit-Aam Aadmi Party-is making its debut in Punjab assembly polls.
Results will be declared on March 11. The Shiromani Akali Dal-Bharatiya Janata Party alliance has been in power in Punjab since 2007.
