‘If Congress doesn’t support then…’, AAP’s ultimatum on ordinance before opposition meeting
Opposition meeting: Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has called a meeting of opposition parties trying to unite against the BJP in Patna on Friday (23 June). Meanwhile, sources told ABP that Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convenor Arvind Kejriwal will raise the issue of the Centre’s ordinance in the meeting.
Sources said that if the Congress does not announce its support to Kejriwal against the ordinance, then he may walk out of the meeting. On AAP’s stand, high Congress sources say that the party will not come under any pressure. The meeting in Patna is about the strategy for the Lok Sabha elections, in which the fixed agenda will be discussed.
The Congress has already made it clear that a strategy will be chalked out only when the central government’s ordinance bill issued on the matter of transfer posting in Delhi comes in the Parliament session. However, the indication of party sources is clear that the Congress will oppose the ordinance in the Parliament.
Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convenor Arvind Kejriwal wants the Congress to express its opinion. Kejriwal is also angry that Congress President Kharge has not yet given him an appointment. But the Congress leadership is avoiding being seen with Kejriwal due to the displeasure of its leaders from Punjab and Delhi.
