Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders Sanjay Singh, Dilip Pandey and Raghav Chaddha were on Saturday detained by the police near the protest venue of Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi’s ‘Mashaal’ march in Delhi.

Rahul was holding a ‘Mashal Juloos’ protest against the AAP Government over water crisis and electricity issue.

Detained AAP leader Dilip Pandey told ANI that they had informed the Congress Party of holding a discussion on this issue and they were waiting there for that only.

“We thought they believe in democracy, dialogue and debate, but it seems they do not believe so. Otherwise, we would have told them, how Sheila Dikshit and Maken were involved in a money laundering scam of Rs. 8,000 crore. It is not right to do drama in such a situation. Rahul is just doing drama. He doesn’t care about the people of Delhi. He should stop acting,” he added.

Rahul, who was atop a vehicle in a huge convoy accompanied by Congress leader Ajay Maken besides other prominent local Congress leaders said that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal made tall promises about solving city’s electricity and water problems, but was now trying to divert the issue by raking up ‘odd-even’ and pollution issues.

The march, called ‘Mashaal Juloos’, earlier met with a major hurdle when the Delhi Police barred the use of fire-lit lanterns, considering it as a hazard.

This, however, refused to dampen the spirit of the party workers, as they gathered in large numbers and raised slogans such as – ‘Sonia Gandhi ki Jai’, ‘Rahul Gandhi ki Jai’.
