In Sangrur, AAP held paid dinner, Cong served free food
A healthy competition between the AAP party and the Congress party workers witnessed in Sangrur as the both were indulged in the meal politics to woo the voters.
AAP leaders had arranged a paid dinner party for fund raising and the minimum price for per plate was Rs 5000. As per the information, people came to attend the dinner in their luxury cars. A lot of industrialists, prominent local personalities on the area and even the other party workers were stepping out from their luxury cars after reaching the venue.
For Bhagwant Mann, the luxury car owners were Aam Aadmi
The AAP leader and Member Parliament from Sangrur, Bhagwant Mann told the media that the dinner party was attended by the common people. They were all Aam Aadmi for the Sangrur MP. If the definition of Aam Aadmi is the person who owns a luxury car, then one can imagine the definition of a rich man.
Congress served free Langar in front of AAP venue
The local leaders of the Congress party also played a publicity stunt to woo the people by serving free langar in front of the same venue where AAP held their paid meeting.
It was just like a competition for both the parties to woo the people. The timings of the paid dinner and langar were same.
Meal politics would do nothing in the state, says expers
The political experts rule out any outcome of the meal politics done by the both parties to woo the people. AAP leaders are fetching money from the political aspirants who are being neglected in their own parties. On the other hand, Congress is trying to woo the people by serving free langar. AAP playing paid politics and Congress playing free meal politics. The stunts may give the political fame to the parties but the final verdict of the assembly polls would be given by the people of Punjab in 2017.
