“When we (Congress) exposed the excise scam, we demanded a proper investigation from the government of the day. Even after 18 months of filing the case, ED and CBI have not taken any action. Just 1 month before the Lok Sabha elections, they arrested Arvind Kejriwal,” Congress leader Abhishek Dutt told ANI.

'Congress suffered due to excise scam': Dutt

Continuing his attack on AAP, Dutt added, “I am sure if we had not contested with them, the Congress would have increased its seats in the elections. Due to the excise scam, the Congress suffered in the Lok Sabha elections. “

“Sathendra Kumar Jain is in jail for his involvement in the scam. Manish Sisodia is in jail and Congress has suffered because of all this”.

Dutt trained guns on Delhi minister Atashi, who briefly went on a hunger strike to press her demand to release surplus water to the capital before the Haryana government.

The Congress leader said, “The agitators are faking a sit-in sit-in and because of this AAP is suffering. The minister's job is to provide complete facilities to the people. There is no water in Delhi and they are staging a sit-in.” said the Congress leader.

This is not the first time the Congress has attacked the AAP, with which it contested all seven Delhi seats in the 2024 general elections. Allies of the Indian bloc could not win a single seat and the BJP retained all seven constituencies in the capital for the third time in a row.

Delhi Congress chief Devendra Yadav had also attacked the AAP over water logging in several parts of the city due to heavy rains.

There is no area in Delhi where water has not accumulated today, be it railway stations, airports, parks or residential areas. First time, stayed in Delhi. We have been regularly writing letters warning the government about the monsoon but in times of crisis the Delhi government runs away as seen today,'' Yadav told PTI.

Delhi minister Saurabh Bhardwaj hit back at the Congress, saying, “Opposition parties in the country are fighting to save the Constitution…The division in the opposition parties is not good. Local leadership in different states has to express their views.” It's right.”
