Move to distract public attention, says Maken

| | New Delhi

Delhi Congress president Ajay Maken on Tuesday said the “dharna” staged by the Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his Cabinet colleagues at Lieutenant Government office is a move to distract public attention from “failures” of his Government.

Kejriwal has proved he is “unable” to use the powers bestowed on him as Chief Minister and is creating “drama” over so called strike by IAS officers and full statehood, he said. “Is it not Kaliyug, that a chief minister whose attendence at Delhi Assembly is just 10 per cent and who does not go to his office, is complaining of non cooperation of IAS officers,” Maken told reporters.

 Kejriwal and his party “lack” any ideology and that is why he said he will campaign for BJP if more powers are given to Delhi government, he said.

 “This proves our contention reiterated by us that both the parties are hand in glove and AAP is B team of the BJP,” Maken said.He also slammed the Kejriwal government’s raising questions on 18 issues like education, health and water supply, and alleged it has “failed” on these despite requiring no additional power or sanction of Centre.

 He also attacked the AAP government over its demand for L-G’s approval to the doorstep ration delivery scheme. “Kejriwal and his ministers are crying hoarse over ration. However the fact is that the number of beneficiaries of public distribution system has gone down from 33.5 lakh during Congress regime to 15 lakh now,” he claimed.
