Kejriwal’s was a personal monologue than a public dialogue : Congress
INVC NEWS Chandigarh, Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee today ridiculed the Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for trying to imitate the PCC president Capt Amarinder Singh in fielding questions from general public. “At best it was a monologue and at worst, his characteristic character assassination of others", said the PCC vice president and Kapurthala MLA Rana Gurjeet Singh, while remarking, “it ended up more as a personal monologue than a public dialogue”. In comparison, he added, Capt Amarinder allows public to speak and ask questions and answer those instead of making self promotional monologues. Rana said, having seen the massive response Capt Amarinder was getting in his ‘question-answer’ sessions, whether with the workers or over the ‘Coffee with Captain’ and ‘Halqe vich Captain’, Kejriwal apparently tried to copy it but failed miserably on that. “Kejriwal, given his self righteous arrogance, cannot listen to others or take questions from them”, he observed. The PCC vice president maintained that the Delhi Chief Minister had spent crores of rupees on the advertisement campaign ahead of his ‘Talk to Kejriwal’ programme, that virtually ended up in ‘Listen to Kejriwal’. Moreover, he added, advertisements were circulated more in Punjab papers than in Delhi, where he is and should be answerable to the public as what he has done during last one and a half year.
