AAP hits out at Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri for his 'anti-Delhi' policies
NEW DELHI: Hitting out at Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri for his "anti-Delhi" policies, the Aam Aadmi Party on Wednesday said a person who has nothing worthwhile to show in his performance as a minister is now venturing
into the arena of electoral political analysis. Challenging Puri for an open debate, the AAP said it we will expose the "real face" of BJP and the Union Minister as well as question his anti-Delhi policies in the next seven days.
The comments by the AAP comes a day after Puri reportedly slammed Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for becoming 'desperate' for an alliance.
AAP chief spokesperson Saurabh Bharadwaj said Puri need not worry about the Aam Aadmi Party, but rather tell the people of Delhi about his "anti-Delhi approach".
"For next seven days, we will expose the real face of BJP and Mr Puri and question his anti-Delhi policies. We challenge him for a open debate. New political wisdom has dawned on BJP's Rajya Sabha MP from Uttar Pradesh Hardeep Singh Puri, who was made a minister of state in the
Narendra Modi government, 18 months back. Puri, who has nothing worthwhile to show in his performance as a minister, is now venturing into
the new arena of electoral political analysis," Bharadwaj said in a statement.
He said it is beyond "any reasonable understanding in which capacity Puri is giving his expert comments on the political situation of Delhi, and why is he so worried about the AAP?" The AAP also
asked Puri why did the BJP central government's nominees on the Delhi Metro Board support the "unjustified" Metro fare hike? "What were the instructions of your ministry to the central government nominees on the Metro Board about the Metro fare hike? Why has the Narendra Modi government stalled approval to three routes of Delhi Metro Phase-IV?" he said.
