Cong, AAP slam Gadkari over 'deal' remarks

The Congress and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Sunday hit out at BJP leader Nitin Gadkari for alleging that a deal was brokered between the two parties by an industrialist to stop the BJP from coming to power in Delhi.

Describing Gadkari’s statement as “irresponsible” and a “complete lie”, Congress general secretary in-charge of Delhi, Shakeel Ahmed said the BJP leader should first produce evidence before levelling such unfounded allegations. “Gadkari and his party are experts in carrying out such deals and not the Congress,” Ahmed said.

He further said that people also recall the circumstances under which Gadkari was removed from the post of BJP president.

“Before making allegations of any deal against others, he (Gadkari) should first explain what was the deal due to which he was removed as BJP’s President,” Ahmed said.

Meanwhile, AAP leader and now a Cabinet minister of the newly formed Delhi government Manish Sisodia too demanded that Gadkari should produce evidence to substantiate his claims.
