Kejriwal taking credit for work done by Congress govt.: Dikshit

Hitting out at Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, former Delhi Chief Minister and recently appointed Delhi Congress president Sheila Dikshit said on Saturday that the Congress would hold programmes in all districts to make Delhiites aware of the “propaganda” of the Aam Aadmi Party government.

Ms. Dikshit, who took charge as the president of the Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee on Wednesday, addressed a meeting of district and block Congress committee presidents as a part of the party’s preparations for the Lok Sabha polls, a DPCC statement said.

Two working presidents of the DPCC, Haroon Yusuf and Rajesh Lilothia, were also present.

The Congress would hold district-wise conventions addressed by Ms. Dikshit from next week, the party said.

‘Misleading Delhiites’

The former three-time Chief Minister said she would hold campaigns in all districts to make people “aware of the false promises and propaganda, corruption and the irresponsible statements” of the AAP, according to the statement.

She said the AAP government had not carried out any development works in the past four years and that the “truth” was that Mr. Kejriwal was “taking credit for the development works carried out by the Congress government during its 15-year rule”, the statement said. She said the AAP government was “misleading” Delhiites when it came to their mohalla clinics and other healthcare services.

She added that with Lok Sabha elections soon, the Congress’s target was to win all seven seats in Delhi, for which the district and block committee presidents would be the backbone.

“Ms. Dikshit said that the confusing statements of the BJP and the AAP, their corruption, wrong policies and failures should be told to the people to make them aware about such matters,” the DPCC statement said.
