Congress leaders can’t make up their mind whether to love or hate Kejriwal, Maken attacks Deora

Other Congress leaders, too, attacked Deora for appreciating Kejriwal's efforts.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has not only emerged as the winner of Delhi assembly elections but also an enigma. Congress leaders are unable to make up their mind on whether to appreciate Kejriwal or criticise him. Former union minister and senior Congress leader Milind Deora last night took to Twitter to appreciate Arvind Kejriwal-led Delhi government.

He tweeted a video Arvind Kejriwal is speaking in the Delhi Assembly where he claims that in five years, the revenue has doubled to Rs 60,000 crore. Deora further added that Delhi is India’s most fiscally prudent governments. However, this little appreciation of Kejriwal didn’t go down too well with other Congress leaders.

Senior Congress leader Ajay Maken who earlier served in UPA led union government and resigned as Congress General Secretary after Congress managed to win a single seat in 2015 Delhi Assembly elections, did not take it too well.

Suggesting Deora to leave Congress if he so wishes, Maken compared growth rates of Delhi governments under Congress and AAP rules.

Other Congress leaders, too, attacked Deora for appreciating Kejriwal’s efforts.

Radhika Khera, who contested the Delhi elections from Janakpuri and lost, too expressed her disappointment at a senior party leader appreciating the party which led to their humiliating defeat.

Congress worker who fancies himself as an activist and threatens people at random with no concrete result Saket Gokhale too decided to give economics lessons to Deora for complimenting Kejriwal government.

Former AAP MLA from Chandni Chowk who lost the same seat as Congress candidate, Alka Lamba too took to sharing WhatsApp forwarded message and compared it to Karnataka Government under Congress’ Siddaramaiah.

Following Maken’s response Deora hit back on Maken saying that he was not undermining former Delhi CM Sheila Dikshit’s performance as Delhi’s CM as “it is his speciality”.

“Instead of advocating an alliance with AAP, if only you had highlighted Sheila ji’s achievements, Congress would’ve been in power today,” Deora tweeted to Maken.
