The journalist asked him that the Akali Dal is continuously protesting on the streets against the Punjab government, but the presence of the Aam Aadmi Party is nowhere to be seen. Bhagwant got angry at the question and called the Akali Dal chief Sukhbir Badal a retarded child. He added that those asking questions that the Akali Dal (SAD) is nowhere and are sitting in the opposition, the Aam Aadmi Party has asked the most questions in the assembly. The Aam Aadmi Party is the real opposition. Which Akali Dal are you talking about?
