Congress Infighting Out in Open: Milind Deora Lauds Kejriwal, Ajay Maken Asks Him to ‘Leave Party’
The Mumbai Congress leader asserted that Delhi managed to double its revenues to ₹60,000 crore and maintained a revenue surplus over the last five years.
New Delhi: Infighting within the Congress came out in the open after senior leader Ajay Maken lambasted his party colleague Milind Deora for showering praise on newly-elected Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. As the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convener took oath as CM for third consecutive term, leaders across party lines congratulated him but Maharashtra Congress leader Milind Deora went a step ahead and shared a gushing video.
Sharing the video of Kejriwal listing out achievements of the AAP government, the Mumbai Congress leader asserted that Delhi managed to double its revenues to ₹60,000 crore and maintained a revenue surplus over the last five years.

“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”, he wrote on the micro-blogging site.
Deora’s tweet garnered over 3,000 likes and got over three thousand retweets. But his post did not go down well with Delhi Congress leader Ajay Maken. Hitting out at Deora, Maken asked him to ‘leave Congress’ and not propagate ‘half-baked facts.’
