AAP chief spokesperson Saurabh Bharadwaj said Mr Puri need not worry about AAP, rather tell the people about his ‘anti-Delhi’ approach.
New Delhi: Hitting out at Union minister Hardeep Singh Puri for his “anti-Delhi” policies, the Aam Aadmi Party on Wednesday said a person who has nothing worthwhile to show in his performance as a minister is now venturing into the arena of electoral political analysis.
Challenging Mr Puri for an open debate, the AAP said it will expose the “real face” of BJP and the Union minister as well as question his anti-Delhi policies in the next seven days.
The comments by the AAP came a day after Mr Puri slammed chief minister Arvind Kejriwal for becoming “desperate” for an alliance.
AAP chief spokesperson Saurabh Bharadwaj said Mr Puri need not worry about the AAP, but rather tell the people of Delhi about his “anti-Delhi approach”.
In a statement, Mr Bharadwaj said: “For next seven days, we will expose the real face of BJP and Mr Puri and question his anti-Delhi policies. We challenge him for a open debate. New political wisdom has dawned on BJP’s Rajya Sabha MP from Uttar Pradesh Hardeep Singh Puri, who was made a minister of state in the Narendra Modi government, 18 months back. …Puri, who has nothing worthwhile to show in his performance as a minister, is now venturing into the new arena of electoral political analysis.”
Mr Bharadwaj said it is beyond “any reasonable understanding in which capacity Puri is giving his expert comments on the political situation of Delhi, and why is he so worried about the Aam Aadmi Party?”
The AAP also asked Mr Puri why did the central government’s nominees on the Delhi Metro Board support the “unjustified” Metro fare hike? “What were the instructions of your ministry to the central government nominees on the Metro Board about the Metro fare hike?”
