Days after the stunning victory of the AAP in the recently-concluded Delhi Assembly elections, Congress infightings have come out in open.
It all started when the former Congress Minister Milind Deora has praised AAP for its record on fiscal discipline he was chided by his own party men, including senior Congress leader Ajay Maken.
In his appreciation post, Deora shared a link that spoke about how the AAP government improved revenue in Delhi.
“Sharing a lesser-known & welcome fact — the @ArvindKejriwal-led Delhi Government doubled its revenues to â‚¹60,000 crore & maintained a revenue surplus over the last 5 years. Food for thought: Delhi is now one of India’s most fiscally prudent governments (sic),” the former minister said on Twitter.
Peeved over colleague lauding the political rival, senior Delhi Congress leader Ajay Maken shared his displeasure in a terse rejoinder. Quoting Deora’s tweet, Maken said, “Brother, you want to leave @INCIndia -Please do-Then propagate half baked facts!” He also went on to share the previous revenue numbers. “However,let me share even lesser know facts- 1997-98-BE (Revenue) 4,073cr 2013-14-BE (Revenue) 37,459cr During Congress Govt Grew at 14.87% CAGR 2015-16 BE 41,129 2019-20 BE 60,000 AAP Gov 9.90% CAGR,” Maken said in a tweet tagging both Deora and Arvind Kejriwal.
Brother, I would never undermine Sheila Dikshit’s stellar performance as Delhi CM. That’s your specialty.
But it’s never too late to change!
