AAP now a ‘khap party’, failed on every front, says Congress


New Delhi : The Congress on Wednesday described the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) as a “khap party” and said the Arvind Kejriwal-led Delhi government has failed on all fronts in the last three years.

“This is not an Aam Aadmi Party, but a khap party which has failed on every front,” Delhi Congress chief Ajay Maken told the media here on the third anniversary of the Delhi government.

He also accused the Delhi Chief Minister of not fulfilling any of his poll promises which he made during the assembly elections.

Slamming Kejriwal for not bringing a strict Lokpal Bill, Maken said: “In 2014, when they got 28 seats, they resigned within 49 days alleging the Congress and the BJP were not allowing them to bring proper Lokpal.”

“But when they again came back in 2015 with 67 seats, they brought a different Lokpal instead of strict Lokpal,” he said, reports IANS.

Maken, who was also accompanied by former Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, compared the work of the Congress government and the AAP government in the city.
