Reversing the trend of free ‘langar’ AAP raises Rs one crore in Punjab

‘Langar’, the tradition of community kitchen has been an integral part of Sikh religion. But reversing the culture of food sharing in Punjab, AAP has been selling a meal for whopping Rs. 10,000.


 Desperate to make an impression in Punjab polls, Aam Aadmi Party has been looting people by first inviting them to lunch and dinner and then asking them to pay for it. This is in stark contrast to Punjab’s culture of community kitchen.

“Khaas’ meal by Aam Aadmi Party


 AAP claims to be the party of common people and represent the voice of ordinary man but still it is charging up to Rs 10,000 for a meal with dinner with its leaders. From ‘Selfie with Mufflerman’ to ‘Coffee with Kejriwal’, there is no end to AAP’s cheap antics to rake some moolah. The party can stoop to any extent to earn some money.

Shockingly people had to pay whopping Rs. 20,000 to have a cup of coffee with AAP supremo Arvind Kejriwal.

No shortage of funds for self-publicity

Arvind Kejriwal led Aam Aadmi Party is crying of shortage of funds and sighting the reason for organising fundraising dinner in Punjab. Now serious questions are raised on their intention – they have massive fund of Rs 526 crores for self-glorification through advertising.

If AAP was short of funds, and was forced to resort to such tactics, then it should stop indulging in expensive advertisements in print and electronic media.

It is natural instinct to get limelight and everyone likes to be on the centre stage on a public gathering. Kejriwal has been very shrewdly exploiting this natural instinct of people for his own personal gains.


AAP and Cong indulges in meal politics


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.
