दिल्ली के बाद ये लोग अब हमारे MLA ख़रीदने पंजाब पहुँच गए। इनके पास इतने हज़ारों करोड़ रुपए कहाँ से आ रहे हैं। ये लोग समझ लें- हम कांग्रेस नहीं हैं, हमें ख़रीदना किसी के बस की बात नहीं— Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) September 14, 2022
देश और जनतंत्र के लिए ये बेहद गंभीर मसला है जिस तरह ये एक एक करके चुनी हुई सरकारें तोड़ रहे हैं https://t.co/EVtCUXVmsV
Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann had also released a video regarding this issue. Which he had said that Punjabis are loyal to their soil. BJP is intoxicated by power. If people do not vote, they choose the way of buying MLAs. Targeting the BJP, he said that Sikandar was also stopped by Punjabis. He expressed confidence in his MLAs and said that he would always be loyal to Punjab.
Addressing a press conference at party headquarters on Wednesday, Punjab Finance Minister Harpal Singh Cheema said that the BJP has murdered democracy by toppling elected government in various states by using centre investigation agencies and buying opposition MLAs.

Now the Punjab Police has registered an FIR against the BJP in the matter after the complaint of AAP.
“Under Operation Lotus, eight MLAs of Congress have switched to the BJP in Goa today. It is a testament that the BJP is killing democracy and forming their governments in non-BJP-ruled states by breaking up parties with the help of CBI, ED and money,” Cheema added.
