The Congress party is doing away with the block-level organisation system and planning to appoint senior leaders, including former ministers, as ‘observers’ throughout the capital.
Maken warned that if a notification on implementing the Street Vendors Act in the capital was not issued within two weeks, the Congress would sit on a dharna and hold agitations outside Arvind Kejriwal’s residence.
For the party, the issue is one of great significance as it would provide a nucleus for its attempts to regain its lost position in the capital ahead of the 2017 municipal elections.
Plea filed by Delhi Congress chief Ajay Maken politically motivated: AAP govt
In his plea, Maken claims that the AAP ad campaign — comprising radio, TV and print ads — violates the Governmental Advertising (Content Regulation) Guidelines, 2014, set by the Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court asked Congress leader Ajay Maken to approach Delhi High Court with his petition against radio and television advertisements by the Delhi government.
The Congress said the chargesheet and documents attached “tell their own story of a shoddy cover-up job to cover the tracks of Chief Minister.”
Ajay Maken claimed that the DPCC has collected “substantial evidence” against several MLAs of the AAP, who have “misled” the electorate about their educational qualifications.
According to a senior government official, to connect with people of Delhi, government has released a 70-second long advertisement which is being played on FM radio channels.
Latching on to the arrest of former Delhi Minister Jitender Tomar, Congress demanded that Centre should also be pro-active in cases related to Union Ministers Smriti Irani and Ram Shankar Katheria.
Delhi Congress chief Ajay Maken appealed to workers to strengthen the party to “fight the divisive forces”.
In 2009, CBI had named Jagdish Tytler and businessman Abhishek Verma in a charge sheet for allegedly sending a forged letter to the then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
Maken said another provision has been added, according to which, builder can extend deadline for compensation.
Congress dismissed his apology for carrying on with his rally despite a farmer’s suicide, saying it was not enough and he needs to introspect why such a situation was allowed to develop.
Maken said the Kejriwal government reduced over 35.6 per cent funds for urban development.
