Don’t take hasty decisions, Congress tells AAP

New Delhi, Jan 2: The Congress Thursday warned the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government against taking hasty decisions that may ultimately “hurt” the national capital’s residents.

“The party should stop taking decisions in haste that may ultimately end up hurting the people of Delhi. Such decisions will halt developmental issues,” Congress’ Arvinder Singh Lovely said in the Delhi assembly.

Lovely, who is also the party’s state chief, was referring to AAP’s announcement of providing 666 litres of free water to each household per day, and 50 percent subsidy on power tariff for those consuming up to 400 units of electricity.

He contended that water in the national capital had in fact become costlier because of the ten percent hike while providing subsidy on electricity was nothing new as the Congress too was doing the same.

“How are you (AAP) different form us (Congress)? We were also giving subsidy on electricity,” he asked.

However, Lovely reiterated that his party would back AAP in the trust motion and would continue to do so as long as the party works for the welfare of Delhi’s people.
