Congress had a problem
However, Congress on another hand slammed Mr. Kejriwal for his meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, maintaining that the AAP leader sounded like he was there to give a clean chit to the Centre and the PM over the communal riots Delhi.
“It seemed, from the way Mr. Kejriwal spoke to the media after meeting the Prime Minister, that “AAP was not the BJP’s B-Team but it was the saffron party’s team“. said Abhishek Singhvi, Congress spokesperson.
