Sources said the AAP government is likely to bring a resolution to the Assembly to oppose the central government’s Agnipath defense recruitment program during the monsoon session.
A similar proposal was passed by the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government in Punjab on Thursday against the controversial project.
The program has sparked protests in several parts of the country by defense wannabes.
During monsoon session, opposition BJP likely to corner city government over issues of erratic water supply, poor state of public transport, alcohol policy, pollution, alleged corruption in the construction of classrooms, among others.
Leader of the Opposition (LoP) in the Delhi Assembly, Ramvir Singh Bidhuri said Kejriwal’s government refrained from discussing people’s issues in every session of the assembly.
“Whenever the opposition tries to discuss issues like electricity, water, public transport, pollution, education, health, the government runs away. If the Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodie has the courage, then he should discuss Delhi’s issues in the assembly,” Bidhuri said in a statement.
