AAP-Congress 'unholy' tie-up like 'liberal Taliban', says Harsh Vardhan

Reacting to the Aam Admi Party's decision to form the government, leader of the BJP Party in the Delhi Assembly, Harsh Vardhan, on Monday termed the AAP-Congress alliance as "liberal Taliban".

For the first time Harsh Vardhan was found using an aggressive tone to condemn the "unholy" alliance with the party, which "professed to cleanse Indian politics and the most corrupt political party in the world".

"This government will begin on a wrong note as it (AAP) would be compromising on its core principles. All talk of honesty and transparency would vanish soon. Already three senior Congress leaders have made it clear that their party's support (to AAP) is not unconditional. The fact that AAP has agreed to this changed position and that too within a week of demanding unconditional support shows how desperate its leaders are for power," Harsh Vardhan said.

On AAP's CM candidate Arvind Kejriwal, Vardhan said, "He is a good man who has shown exceptional discipline and people have appreciated his commitment. However, I am disappointed with the way he has buckled... What he calls a 'referendum' is a sham. Everybody knows that SMSes and emails that were sent urging AAP to agree to a power sharing arrangement were (actually) sent from the Congress headquarters. If Kejriwal really wanted to hear the people's voice, the credible process would have been an election."

Calling Kejriwal's policies bizarre, Harsh Vardhan said if they were implemented, the people of Delhi would be in serious trouble.
