hand of friendship on one side;  On the other hand, the threat of agitation, how will AAP help Congress?

Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is in a cross-border mood with the Center regarding the service issue in Delhi. The Aam Aadmi Party has sought the support of all non-BJP parties to thwart the Centre’s ordinance bill in the Rajya Sabha. Under this exercise, Kejriwal had a meeting with Bihar CM Nitish Kumar on Sunday. After the meeting, Nitish said that he hoped that in the coming times, the Congress would also be seen in favor of the demand of the Aam Aadmi Party. Although Delhi Congress’s bitterness towards AAP remains intact. Delhi Congress has warned of agitation if the water crisis is not resolved.

On Monday, Delhi Congress President Chaudhary Anil Kumar said in a press conference that if an adequate solution for water supply is not found, then agitation will be held against the Delhi government in every ward. He said that the AAP government has failed to fulfill the promise of providing clean tap water to every household in Delhi in nine years. The Delhi government has not yet found any solution to meet the water shortage. He said that if the Delhi government does not find a solution to the problem soon, Congress workers will agitate in every ward. In such a situation, the question is how will the Congress manage the AAP to stop the Ordinance Bill.

Meanwhile, the news agency PTI has given a big information on the ongoing confrontation between the Delhi Center. According to a PTI report, the Congress is yet to take a decision on the Centre’s ordinance related to administrative services in Delhi. The Congress says that it will take a decision only after talking to its state units and like-minded parties. Congress organization general secretary KC Venugopal tweeted that the Congress has not yet taken any decision on the issue of the ordinance brought against the decision of the Supreme Court in the context of Delhi.

The Delhi Congress had recently demanded President’s rule in the national capital amid the ongoing tussle between the Delhi government and the Centre. Not only this, a day before, Congress leader Ajay Maken had given strong advice to the Kejriwal government and advised it to follow the methodology of former CM Sheila Dixit. Overall, if we look at the political scenario which is visible, then we find that the state Congress’s bitterness towards the AAP government remains intact. In such a situation, it has to be seen whether the Congress will support the AAP to fail the Ordinance Bill of the Center in the Rajya Sabha.

It is noteworthy that after meeting Nitish a day ago, Kejriwal had said that if the Center’s bill is not passed in the Rajya Sabha, the message will go that the BJP will lose the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. The examination of the Central Bill in Parliament is going to prove to be the semi-final of the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. Kejriwal (CM Arvind Kejriwal) had also said that he would himself seek the support of the heads of all opposition parties to garner support in this matter so that instead of the ordinance, the Center’s bill could be prevented from being passed in the Rajya Sabha.

Amidst these efforts by Kejriwal, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar met Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge and Rahul Gandhi on Monday. In this meeting, there was a brainstorm regarding the outline of opposition unity. It was decided in the meeting that a decision would be taken in the next one or two days regarding fixing the date and venue of the meeting of the opposition parties. JDU national president Lalan Singh, Bihar government minister Sanjay Jha and Congress organization general secretary KC Venugopal were present in the meeting which lasted for more than an hour at Kharge’s residence.
