New Delhi: Delhi Congress today said it was ready for fresh Assembly elections in Delhi after the Supreme Court rapped the Centre and the Lt Governor over the delay in government formation in the national capital. A meeting convened by AICC general secretary Shakeel Ahmed and DPCC chief Arvinder Singh today saw discussions on the current political situation in Delhi.
Delhi Congress's chief spokesperson Mukesh Sharma said that, after the meeting, a unanimous resolution was passed seeking fresh elections in the national capital following the dissolution of the Delhi Assembly.
Congress has asked its leaders and workers to gear up for the fresh elections in the national capital. “BJP is afraid of defeat in Delhi; that is the reason why it is trying to delay the Assembly elections,” said Singh. Sharma said that the party has asked its MLAs, ex-MLAs, former ministers and municipal councillors to prepare for the Assembly poll battle.
Congress workers were also asked to pitch in for the party's membership drive. “BJP and AAP misled the people of Delhi by telling them lies to garner votes, which the people have now fully understood.
“Voters now will not fall into the trap of these parties,” said Sharma.
After the Supreme Court today pulled up the Centre and Lt Governor Najeeb Jung for the delay in government formation in Delhi, Congress has charged that BJP was “running away” from fresh elections in the national capital.
