Delhi Congress takes out candle-light march over AAP’s ‘failure’

New Delhi, Feb 14 (IANS) Congress workers led by Delhi unit chief Ajay Maken on Sunday took out a candle-light march to observe “Chhalawa Diwas” and said the first year of the Aam Aadmi Party government in the capital was a “total failure”.

Shouting slogans, Congress workers — who marched from Rajghat to ITO Chowk — said the Arvind Kejriwal government should concentrate on proper governance instead of indulging in “blame game” and “politicising every issue”.

Maken said the participation of a large number of Congress workers in the candle-light march showed their anger against the AAP government.

He said Kerjiwal had begun his political career with social activist Anna Hazare’s India Against Corruption (IAC) but his government brought “a very weak and toothless” Jan Lokpal bill.

He accused the Kejriwal government of squandering public money by issuing advertisements about its achievements.

The Congress on Saturday brought out a booklet giving zero marks to the AAP government for its performance in the first year of its governance.
