Sisodia said Baijal had previously worked together in several departments in Delhi and have the first-hand information of the problems faced by the national capital. Sisodia’s praise of the new Lt Governor marks a major departure from the way the AAP government in Delhi and Jung were in torn into conflict regarding government issues.
“I have met him many times and we feel comfortable with him,” Sisodia, who also holds the Education Portfolio and is a confidant of CM Arvind Kejriwal, said.
“We (Delhi government and Baijal) have been discussing issues. Many files that had been held up (by Jung) are being cleared… He is a positive man,” he added.
When enquired about party’s performance in upcoming elections, he expressed confidence of winning assembly elections in both Punjab and Goa. “An election victory in a major state like Punjab will give a huge boost to the AAP nationally for its brand of clean politics,” Sisodia said as per IndiaTv reports.
“We will have a clean sweep in the battle for the 117-seat Punjab assembly. It will be like a Delhi verdict,” he add
Accusing the Akali Dal and the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) for propagating that Punjab’s rural areas to vote for the Congress if they were unhappy with the Akali-BJP government; he says, “This has backfired,” said Sisodia, who returned from Punjab recently after extensively campaigning there. “It has made people believe Kejriwal’s charge that the Akalis and the Congress are secretly allied against the AAP.”
Sisodia confident about AAP’s victory he said, “People in Goa are looking for a new hope. That hope is AAP.”
Slamming the current government policies he said, “The BJP,” he said, “does not have new ideas. They only believe in politics of gimmicks. This can’t work in the long run.”
