“Need more proof of collusion between the Akalis and the Congress? This happening just before elections. It means the Akalis and the Congress are jointly fighting elections,” Kejriwal said in a tweet while sharing a copy of the media report.

The state Vigilance Bureau had registered a first information report against Amarinder Singh in the Amritsar Improvement Trust land scam case.

According to the report shared by Kejriwal, the Punjab government is set to withdraw the case.
