NEW DELHI: Senior Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala on Thursday alleged that the AAP had connived with the BJP at the behest of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) to divert the people’s attention away from real issue.
At a press conference on the last day of poll campaigning in the national capital, Surjewala said that there was a ‘mutually beneficial shadow boxing’ between Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Prime Minister Narendra Modi over civic issues in the city.
“This game of deceit and deception, has taken the focus away from the monumental fraud that has been carried out on the people of Delhi by Kejriwal and Modi governments. This is a drama, which has two central characters acting at the behest of the RSS, with the singular aim of diverting the people’s attention away from real issues,” he said.
