Alleging that the AAP has “failed” to fulfill its poll promises, the Delhi unit of Congress observed a ‘Chhalawa Diwas’ as the Arvind Kejriwal-led government completed one year in office today.
As part of its protest, the Congress took out a candlelight march from Rajghat to ITO Chowk in which several party leaders including its Delhi unit president Ajay Maken, AICC in-charge of Delhi P C Chacko, AICC secretaries Kuljit Nagra, Naseeb Singh and Manish Chatrath, participated.
“The Aam Aadami Party government’s one-year rule was full of misery for the people, as Kejriwal did not fulfill even a single promise made to them before the Assembly elections,” Maken alleged.
Posters bearing ‘Chhalawa Diwas’ term were seen pasted on the walls in several areas of the city, which has been used by the Congress to attack AAP government’s on its first anniversary.
Referring to the AAP’s confrontations with BJP-led NDA government, Maken said the Kejriwal dispensation “wasted” its time in blame game with others.
The former Union minister also lambasted the dispensation over several issues including its “weak” Jan Lokpal Bill, hike in VAT, cases against AAP MLAs during the year, hike in salaries of legislators and expansion in government’s budget allegedly for its own campaign.
Former party legislator Mukesh Sharma also hit out at AAP, terming it as the “most corrupt” party.
Meanwhile, AAP MLAs, functionaries and volunteers celebrated one year in office by sharing its achievements with the people in their constituencies.
