A Congress wave is “sweeping” the national capital, former Union minister and New Delhi parliamentary seat candidate Ajay Maken claimed on Thursday, saying there was an “undercurrent against the BJP”.
The former Delhi Congress chief is pitted against BJP’s sitting MP from New Delhi Meenakshi Lekh and AAP’s Brijesh Goel in a triangular electoral contest.
Maken, eyeing support of a large number of government employees in the constituency, accused the BJP of “ruining” public sector enterprises and claimed people are looking at the Congress for an able government.
“A Congress wave is sweeping the national capital, as there is an undercurrent of angst against the BJP. Congress candidates will emerge victorious in Delhi. People are now fondly recalling the 15-year rule of the party in Delhi and the 10 years of the UPA government at the Centre,” he said.
Maken, who was the Urban development minister in the Congress-led UPA government, promised that his party will provide relief to the traders and people hit by sealing drive, coming out with a permanent solution to prevent it forever.
