As a political slugfest broke out over slum demolition issue, AAP today hit back at Rahul Gandhi alleging such actions were also carried out under Congress rule while Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal called him a “child”.
Aam Aadmi Party and Trinammol Congress protested near the Mahatma Gandhi statue outside Parliament condemning the demolition by Railways in Shakur Basti area of West Delhi after it was blamed for the death of an infant.
AAP also protested in Parliament over the issue after Speaker Sumitra Mahajan rejected an adjournment motion moved by it.
Taking a swipe at Rahul Gandhi, who said that both Kejriwal government and Modi government were responsible for the situation after visiting the site, AAP leader Ashutosh said his statements reflect the reasons behind Congress’ defeat in Lok Sabha polls, in which it was reduced to 44 seats.
“Now I know y Congress is reduced to 44?(sic)
“This is Rahul-used to talk about Kalavati,” AAP leader Ashutosh said on Twitter.
Lashing out at the Congress Vice President, Kejriwal tweeted, “Rahul Gandhi is still a child. His party probably did not tell him that Railway comes under the central government, and not under the Government of Delhi.”
