With the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) mired in a bitter internal feud, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley today said it should fulfil the promises made to the people of Delhi and not fritter away the opportunity with its “immature” politics.
He said people of Delhi had high hopes when they voted for Arvind Kejriwal government and he never expected “such politics” to emerge.
“This new kind of politics which has emerged wherein when a politician talks, the conversation is recorded. Well! I never expected this kind of politics,” Jaitley said at a press conference.
He was replying to queries related to the turmoil in Aam Aadmi Party and the alleged taped conversation of AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal in a sting operation in which he is heard purportedly using expletives against dissident leaders Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan and even threatening to form a new party.
Jaitley said that AAP should fulfil the promises that it had made with public during Delhi assembly election and people of the city had a lot of expectations when they voted for this government.
“With a lot of expectation and high hopes, people of Delhi had chosen the government. The promises which AAP and its leaders have made with public, they must fulfil them,” said Jaitley, adding that “they should not let this historical opportunity go waste just because of their immature politics.”
