Congress observes ‘Bhagoda Divas’ to target AAP
New Delhi, Sep 16 (IANS) The Congress on Friday staged a protest in all 70 constituencies of the national capital to observe “Bhagoda Divas” over the absence of AAP ministers following the outbreak of chikungunya and dengue.
The protest against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, his ministers and Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung, for being out of the city was led by Delhi Congress unit chief Ajay Maken.
He accused the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders of staying away from the city at a time of crisis.
Slamming Kejriwal, Maken alleged: “While the people of the city are facing an epidemic like situation, Kejriwal was busy in campaigning for his party in Punjab.”
“Instead of looking after the situation here, he went to Bengaluru for his treatment,” he alleged.
The Congress leader also attacked Jung, who was in the US and Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia for holidaying in Finland.
The Congress leader also slammed one of the mayors of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) who is on a foreign trip.
The Congress leader also urged Kejriwal and other ministers of the Delhi government to immediately come back and hold an all-party meeting over the vector-borne diseases chikungunya and dengue, which have claimed at least 32 lives in the last few days.
