NEW DELHI: The Congress in Delhi has assured AAP that it will support the new government in Delhi in public interest. Speaking on the confidence motion, Congress’ state chief Arvinder Singh Lovely said the party could give the support even for full five years if AAP government worked in the interest of the people. Addressing the Assembly ahead of the trust motion, AAP leader Manish Sisodia said the AAP is here for development and the party wants to ensure that people in Delhi get clean water to drink and cheap electricity. Vowing to improve the facilities for Delhiites, the AAP minister said the party is “here for the traders, farmers and youth of Delhi”.
BJP leader Harsh Vardhan congratulated the new government. He said, before elections, Kejriwal urged people to vote for the most honest party and people of Delhi gave the most seats to BJP. Strange the party that got maximum votes is sitting in opposition, added Harsh Vardhan.
The BJP leader said that when AAP emerged, people of this country saw new hope. Though the AAP emerged due to Anna Hazare’s movement, the social crusader decided to stay out of politics. However, he questioned the reason behind Kejriwal joining hands with those (Congress) whom he earlier promised to send behind bars. “What is AAP’s reason behind joining hands with a party the people ‘threw in the dustbin’?”
There have been many scams in 15 years of Congress rule. I heard Mr Kejriwal saying if Dr Harsh Vardhan had any evidence, he should share it with us. I want to ask the Chief Minister, why did he claim to act against the corrupt people in Congress if he had no evidence?
You didn’t want security, but you enjoy three-tier security. Also, there is nothing special about using the metro. I have been using the metro to commute from Krishna Nagar to Dwarka where my children stay, I have never invited the media to highlight this. With your metro rides, you have put the public’s safety in danger, added Dr Harsh Vardhan. The BJP leader also asked Kejriwal to apologies for the Jammu and Kashmir remark and for Batla House encounter stand.
Dr Harsh Vardhan concluded his debate, saying the AAP betrayed the people and the BJP can’t support it. –Agencies
