Cong protests in 21 AAP legislators’ constituencies
NEW DELHI: Congress workers on Sunday held demonstrations in the assembly constituencies of the 21 Aam Aadmi Party MLAs who were appointed as parliamentary secretaries.
The protests were a culmination of the week-long door-to-door signature campaign against the ruling party legislators for holding “office of profit”.
“In no other state in the country, one-third of the total MLAs in the House has been appointed as parliamentary secretaries to ministers with perks and facilities such as office vehicle, office space and other amenities provided to ministers. They should resign without a moment’s delay for holding office of profit,” Delhi Congress chief Ajay Maken said.
Maken said the country’s home minister sat on a dharna outside chief minister Arvind Kejriwal’s house last week, and Delhi’s deputy chief minister sat outside the Prime Minister’s residence on Sunday.
