'Sukhbir Badal Has 63 Fake CDs against Us': Kejriwal

After arriving in Punjab amid protests for a three-day visit, Arvind Kejriwal fired a series of allegations at the state's ruling Akali Dal and the powerful Badal family.

"I have information that Sukhbir Badal has 63 fake CDs against us, they will release two or three daily," the Delhi Chief Minister said at a press conference moments after reaching Ludhiana.

"They hired an entire video company for this," he said.

"PTC is a channel of the Badals. They will release 2-3 CDs every day and will showcase them on PTC.”

"People had told me that the Badals will start attacking me a few months before the elections,” he said, adding that the attacks had started.

"Last time I came to Punjab, my car was attacked with an iron rod. Recently, AAP workers were attacked in Malout. Today, I was attacked at the New Delhi railway station,” he added.

"We are here to stay. We are not going anywhere. Will send the Badals to jail,” Kejriwal told the media.

Mr Kejriwal is in Punjab for what many see as a major clean-up of his party organization, which has been enmeshed in allegations of infighting, bribe and exploitation of women.

"I am setting up camp and will not leave until I remove the Badals," he said, targeting Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal and his son and deputy Sukhbir Badal.

Earlier kejriwal faced protests upon arrival at Ludhiana Railway Station.

The protesters shouted slogans against Kejriwal and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) at the station where he arrived by the Shatabdi Express.

Punjab Police and Delhi Police personnel as well as AAP volunteers had to form a ring around Kejriwal to keep the protesters at bay. The protesters shouted slogans like "Kejriwal, go back”.

Kejriwal is visiting Punjab after the AAP sacked its state unit chief Sucha Singh Chhotepur, resignations by some AAP leaders and allegations of corruption in allotment of tickets for the coming assembly elections.

Assembly polls in Punjab are likely to be held early next year.
