Talking about Kejriwal’s campaigns in the Punjab assembly elections in 2017, Vishwas said, “Amidst this, a person like him, whom I suggested not take support from the separatists and fringe elements who were linked to the Khalistani movement in the last elections, and he told me not to worry. When I asked him how he would become CM, he told me the formula as well. He is on the same path. Even if he is not on the same path, he will use a puppet to control the government.”
“He even made dangerous statements in front of me that everyone knows in Punjab. One day when I asked him about referendum 2020 that was being funded by ISI and other elements across the world, he told me not to worry and said, “Either I will become Chief Minister of the state or I will become first Prime Minister of an independent nation (Khalistan).” Vishwas added.
Notably, banned Sikh body International Sikh Youth Federation (ISYF) Gurdial Singh had campaigned for AAP during the 2017 assembly elections. In 2018 it was revealed that Khalistani groups had funded AAP in the Punjab elections.
