Sonia failed to hide deal with BJP in Delhi: AAP

“Congress President Sonia Gandhi has unsuccessfully tried to hide her own party’s open alliance with the BJP on February 14 in the state assembly, which led to the defeat of the Jan Lokpal Bill,” said the Aam Aadmi Party in a statement on Sunday while reacting on her comments on the resignation of Arvind Kejriwal’s government.

“Sonia Gandhi, in a desperate bid to deflect attention from the growing public anger against a series of corruption scams of the Congress-led UPA’s central government and its wrong policies, choose to harp on her party’s specialisation of running a government at all costs, whether through horse trading or defection of MPs/MLAs,” said the party.

“It was the Congress which joined hands with the BJP in the state assembly and in full public view its MLAs were shouting that they have a total strength of 40 MLAs in the 70 member House and therefore this bill cannot be introduced,” said the statement.

The party also slammed the Centre for imposing a President’s rule in Delhi. “It is for Gandhi’s Congress party to tell the people of Delhi why it is hiding behind the shield of President’s rule and denying the voters their right to elect a new government?” the party said.
