New Delhi: The AAP on Friday accused the Congress-led UPA government of conceiving the controversial south Delhi colonies redevelopment project in 2006, caught in an eye of storm over proposed felling of nearly 17,000 trees.

The Modi government has only “repackaged” the project, it originally belongs to the Congress-led UPA government, alleged AAP chief spokesperson Saurabh Bhardwaj on Thursday.

 

The AAP hurled the allegations hours after a tweet by the Congress president Rahul Gandhi hit out at the BJP and the AAP today over proposed felling of trees in the national capital for the project.

Following the tweet, Mr Bhardwaj also accused erstwhile urban development minister Ajay Maken of “betraying” Mr Gandhi by not apprising him of the “origin” of the project, resulting in his tweet on the controversial issue.
