Cong threatens to lay siege to Secretariat

If power and water problems are not solved immediately, Congress workers would lay siege to the Delhi Secretariat, the party announced while preparing for rallies of film star and ex-MP Raj Babbar who will release a “chargesheet” against the BJP and the AAP.

Babbar will undertake a whirlwind tour of west Delhi on Thursday to address a dozen rallies and expose the failures of the two rival parties, the Delhi Congress said.

Besides elaborating on plans to add star power to the party’s campaign in this elections, Delhi Congress chief Arvinder Singh also welcomed into the party a former legislator and BJP leader Jitender Bhaiya.

The wife of the former Jahangirpuri legislator also joined the Congress. Shashibala, wife of Jitender Bhaiya, is currently a legislator in the North Corporation.

Arvinder Singh said the trend of leaders from other parties joining the Congress has picked up and is indicative of the Congress party’s growing popularity ahead of the next Assembly polls in February.

“The BJP is enjoying the benefits of power at the Centre and has totally neglected the people who are suffering due to inflated water and power bills,” he said.
“The death of a poor patient outside the Lal Bahadur Shastri Hospital in east Delhi also shows how caring the BJP government is,” Arvinder Singh said, demanding punishment for those responsible for negligence.

Arvinder Singh said during the poll campaign the Congress will not only showcase its achievements in the city during its 15 year rule but also strongly expose the ills and negatives of its rivals – the AAP and the BJP.

The party has planned half a dozen rallies of ex-MP and film star Raj Babbar at the Uttam Nagar Assembly constituency on December 25.
