- Arvind Kejriwal goes public, sets terms for AAP's minority government in DelhiArvind Kejriwal gets surprise boost from Congress' Digvijay Singh over job as Delhi chief ministerCongress split over support to AAP, some say ‘not right’At Arvind Kejriwal's greatest hour in Delhi, his 'guru' Anna Hazare votes with feet
Reflecting the unease in sections of Congress over its support to AAP to form the government in Delhi, senior party leader Janardan Dwivedi on Tuesday said there was an opinion in the party that the decision to support AAP was perhaps not correct, and it should have instead raised people’s issues as an opposition.
Dwivedi’s remarks came on a day when Congress workers are protesting the party’s decision to support Arvind Kejriwal’s bid to form government. Ever since AAP decided to form government, Congress leaders have been repeatedly emphasising that their support to AAP is not unconditional.
Dwivedi said, “There is also an opinion that perhaps the decision to support AAP in this manner was not correct. Some people feel this. Their argument is that Delhi voters have not given their support to Congress to the extent that the party could win only eight seats and it has not even got the post of leader of the Opposition. Perhaps it would have been appropriate that we would have left it to others to form government whoever wanted it.”
“In this condition,” he said, “We would have played the role of Opposition and continued to raise the issues of people like a responsible Opposition.”
