After being slammed by Metro Man E Sreedharan, AAP resorts to the usual tactics: Calls him a BJP stooge

AAP's hurry to brand Sreedharan as a 'BJP stooge' only exposes their real intentions behind the proposal. Political grandstanding, where they get to make promises they can never fulfil and also blame the BJP for the failures.

For AAP, anyone who dares to question their proposals and policies is a BJP stooge and all their failures are because of the BJP. Such is the blind arrogance of the party that now it has branded E Sreedharan, India’s ‘Metro Man’, the brain behind stellar engineering projects like Delhi Metro, Konkan Railways and many more, as a BJP stooge.

After the AAP government proposed the idea of free metro travel for women, E Sreedharan had written a letter to PM Modi, requesting him to not support the proposal because it will be a disaster for the already cash strapped Delhi Metro. Later, Delhi’s deputy CM Manish Sisodia had penned a letter to Sreedharan, who is the principal adviser to DMRC, asking him to support the proposal. Sreedharan, in his reply, had severely criticised the Delhi government and had asked them not to destroy an efficient public transport system like Delhi Metro for electoral gains.

AAP, in response, had organised a press conference yesterday, where they called E Sreedharan a ‘BJP stooge’.

AAP’s Atishi Marlena even went so far as to say that Sreedharan is being used by the BJP as a weapon. She even said that seeing Sreedharan speak, they feel as if it is the BJP speaking.

Instead of addressing Sreedharan’s concerns and answering why their government has failed to complete linking bus services so far when they are bragging so much about ‘women’s safety’, AAP’s hurry to brand Sreedharan as a ‘BJP stooge’ only exposes their real intentions behind the proposal. Political grandstanding, where they get to make promises they can never fulfil and also blame the BJP for the failures.
