Aam Aadmi Party reversed development work of Sheila Dikshit government: Congress
NEW DELHI: Congress on Sunday accused AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal of betraying people by reversing all developmental works initiated by the Sheila Dikshit government and running away to escape “public wrath”.
The Delhi Congress leaders were addressing ‘Pol Khol Abhiyaan’. DPCC chief Arvinder Singh said, “It is due to their (AAP’s) carelessness that the Delhi budget was not introduced in the Assembly and now from April 1, water and electricity will be costlier than before.”
“50 per cent cut in electricity bill, 700 litres of free water, permanent flats and promises made to contractual government employees have not been fulfilled by AAP and they betrayed the citizens. People voted AAP to form a new government and Congress decided to support them. But AAP ran away…Congress was willing to give them more time and support but they ran away. They never called an all-party meeting to discuss the issues of the state,” he added.
Party MP Sandeep Dikshit accused Kejriwal of reversing all the developmental works initiated during the Congress government. “AAP said they will allot houses to 20 lakh people. They cancelled the allotment made by previous Congress government to people living in jhuggis and set up an inquiry,” Dikshit said.
On Somnath Bharti issue, Arvinder Singh said Kejriwal “protected” the former law minister, who had led a midnight raid at south Delhi’s Khirki Extension. “Bharti has been found guilty in the judicial inquiry into the midnight raid. After this report, Kejriwal should apologise to the country,” he said.
