Kejriwal making 'empty talks' on full statehood for Delhi issue: Sheila Dikshit
"Kejriwal was confusing people by talking about the Aam Aadmi Party's tie-up with the Congress in the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections. But, the Congress will contest the Lok Sabha elections on its own and will win all the seven seats in Delhi"
"Kejriwal is making empty talks about full statehood for Delhi and nothing will come out of his rhetorics. If he was serious about full statehood for Delhi, he should have taken up the issue four years ago. He is raking up the full statehood issue with an eye on the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections," Dikshit, who is the Congress' Delhi unit president, said.
She also reiterated the Delhi Congress's stand that it will not have any alliance with the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) for the Lok Sabha polls.
"Kejriwal was confusing people by talking about the Aam Aadmi Party's tie-up with the Congress in the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections. But, the Congress will contest the Lok Sabha elections on its own and will win all the seven seats in Delhi," former Delhi chief minister Dikshit said.
Addressing party workers at Mehrauli and Badarpur areas, she said the people of Delhi are fed up of "hollow promises" of Chief Minister Kejriwal and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and wanted Congress governments at the Centre and in Delhi.
"The Modi and Kejriwal governments make big promises, but they remain as just promises. People are fed up with both and want the Congress back," the three-time chief minister said, accusing the Kejriwal government of wasting public money on its publicity.
"The Kejriwal government has failed on all fronts and is now thriving by putting out five to six full-page advertisements in newspapers and squandering the hard-earned money of tax payers' for self publicity," Dikshit alleged.
She asked workers to ensure victory of Congress candidates in the Lok Sabha polls and said only the Congress can provide a stable and development-oriented government.
