Ajay Maken slams Milind Deora for praising Kejriwal government

Congress leader Ajay Maken has attacked party colleague Milind Deora for praising Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, on the day of his swearing-in for the third term in the national capital.

“Sharing a lesser known & welcome fact — the @ArvindKejriwal-led Delhi Government doubled its revenues to ₹60,000 crore & maintained a revenue surplus over the last 5 years. Food for thought: Delhi is now one of India’s most fiscally prudent governments,” Deora had said in a tweet.

Delhi Congress leader Ajay Maken was not pleased with Milind Deora’s admiration for AAP supremo and said the latter should leave the party if he wishes to but shouldn’t propagate half-baked facts.

“Brother,you want to leave @INCIndia-Please do-Then propagate half baked facts! However,let me share even lesser know facts- 1997-98-BE (Revenue) 4,073cr 2013-14-BE (Revenue) 37,459cr During Congress Govt Grew at 14.87% CAGR 2015-16 BE 41,129 2019-20 BE 60,000 AAP Gov 9.90% CAGR,” Maken had tweeted.

Delhi Congress leader Radhika Khera also hit out at Milind Deora and said his comments are “extremely disappointing”.

“As a young first time contestant I find this extremely disappointing from our senior leaders, who instead of encouraging our own party to do better are busy patting AAP’s back! Food for thought: Delhi has run a surplus since 1994, this peaked in 2011 under Sheila Ji,” she tweeted.
