Scores of workers give vent to their anger outside PCC office

A section of the Congress is of the view that the decision to support an Aam Aadmi Party government is “perhaps not correct,” general secretary Janardan Dwivedi acknowledged to journalists here on Tuesday — on a day when scores of workers vociferously expressed their anger outside the DPCC office.

Mr. Dwivedi, responding to a question on the protests, said, “There is an opinion that perhaps the decision to support the AAP in this manner was not correct. Their argument is that Delhi voters have not given their support to the Congress: the party won only eight seats. Perhaps, it would have been appropriate to leave it to others to form a government … we would have played the role of opposition and continued to raise people’s issues like a responsible opposition.”

The Congress general secretary, however, added that since a commitment had been made to back an AAP government, it would have to be kept. But, at the same time, he made it clear that since the party was extending support from outside, it would be issue-based — it was not unconditional.
