Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convenor Arvind Kejriwal has sought an appointment with Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge and former President Rahul Gandhi. These days, Kejriwal, who is gathering support from the opposition parties against the ordinance brought by the central government, has expressed his desire to talk to the Congress after Trinamool Congress, Shiv Sena and Nationalist Congress Party. Many leaders in the Congress party are speaking openly on the issue of support to Kejriwal and it will be interesting to see what the decision of the party high command is.
Kejriwal tweeted on Friday morning that he has sought time to meet Congress leaders. The AAP convener wrote, “Sought time from Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge and Rahul Gandhi this morning to discuss the support in Parliament against the unconstitutional and undemocratic ordinance brought by the central government, the attack on the federal structure and the current political scenario.” Arvind Kejriwal, surrounded by allegations like liquor scam and spending crores on bungalow, is also facing a war of rights with the central government these days. Kejriwal wants to block its passage in the Rajya Sabha after the Supreme Court’s mandate has been snatched from the ordinance.
Why religion is a time of crisis for the Congress
Arvind Kejriwal, who came into politics by anti-corruption movement during the Congress government, has created a religious crisis for the country’s oldest party. AAP is expecting support from the Congress in the fight for the rights and action of central investigative agencies. Congress is divided on the issue of support to AAP. Leaders from Delhi, Punjab, Gujarat to Goa are protesting against extending support to a party which has done them a lot of damage. In Delhi and Punjab, AAP wrested power from the Congress, and in Gujarat and Goa also divided its vote share. Prominent among those protesting is senior leader Ajay Maken, who also says that Arvind Kejriwal has passed a resolution to withdraw Bharat Ratna from former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, how can such a leader be supported?
