Congress infighting over Kejriwal: Milind Deora showers praises on AAP, Ajay Maken asks him to leave
Infighting between Congress leaders over praising Arvind Kejriwal and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) now has Milind Deora and Ajay Maken locked in a bitter war of words.
While politicians across party lines have heaped praises on Arvind Kejriwal, who took oath for a third time as the Delhi chief minister, Maharashtra Congress leader Milind Deora took it further.
In a tweet, Milind Deora said, “Sharing a lesser known & welcome fact – the @ArvindKejriwal-led Delhi Government doubled its revenues to? 60,000 crore & maintained a revenue surplus over the last 5 years. Food for thought: Delhi is now one of India’s most fiscally prudent governments”.
Delhi Congress leader Ajay Maken, however, was not pleased with Milind Deora’s newfound admiration for Arvind Kejriwal.
Brother,you want to leave @INCIndia-Please do-Then propagate half baked facts!
However,let me share even lesser know facts-

Maken hit out at Deora and said he should leave the party if he wishes to, but shouldn’t “propagate half-baked facts”.
“Brother, you want to leave @INCIndia-Please do-Then propagate half baked facts! However, let me share even lesser know facts- 1997-98-BE (Revenue) 4,073cr, 2013-14-BE (Revenue) 37,459cr. During Congress Govt Grew at 14.87% CAGR, 2015-16 BE 41,129, 2019-20 BE 60,000, AAP Gov 9.90% CAGR,” said Maken.
Delhi Congress leader Radhika Khera too hit out at Milind Deora and said his comments are “extremely disappointing”.
“As a young first time contestant I find this extremely disappointing from our senior leaders, who instead of encouraging our own party to do better are busy patting AAP’s back! Food for thought: Delhi has run a surplus since 1994, this peaked in 2011 under Sheila Ji,” she said.
Earlier as the Delhi election results counting gave AAP a clear majority over BJP and Congress and gave the party a third term in the government, former Union minister P Chidambaram, too, showered the party with praises.
However, former President and Congress leader Pranab Mukherjee’s daughter Sharmistha Mukherjee didn’t take his praises too kindly.
With due respect sir, just want to know- has @INCIndia outsourced the task of defeating BJP to state parties? If not, then why r we gloating over AAP victory rather than being concerned abt our drubbing? And if yes’, then we (PCCs) might as well close shop! https://t.co/Zw3KJIfsRx

Chidambaram had said, “AAP won, bluff and bluster lost. The people of Delhi, who are from all parts of India, have defeated the polarising, divisive and dangerous agenda of the BJP. I salute the people of Delhi who have set an example to other states that will hold their elections in 2021 and 2022”.
Sharmistha hit back and said, “With due respect sir, just want to know- has @INCIndia outsourced the task of defeating BJP to state parties? If not, then why r we gloating over AAP victory rather than being concerned abt our drubbing? And if ‘yes’, then we (PCCs) might as well close shop!”
In the Delhi assembly elections, Congress has been reduced to zero seats. In two consecutive assembly elections, Congress has managed to score a duck while the newly formed party AAP has soared to new heights with mandates that has reduced the Opposition to single-digit figures.
