New Delhi, August 5, 2023: A heated exchange between the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and the Congress has unfolded over the issue of ‘mohalla clinics’ in Delhi.

Senior Congress leader Sandeep Dikshit responded to Karnataka minister Dinesh Gundu Rao’s recent statement, where he referred to the AAP-run clinics as “overhyped” and expressed disappointment after visiting one such facility.

Dikshit asserted that he could have presented the “real truth of Arvind Kejriwal’s governance” to Rao during his visit. This exchange comes amidst the backdrop of the ongoing alliance between the AAP and the Congress within the Opposition I.N.D.I.A. bloc.

Taking advantage of the situation, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) seized the opportunity to criticize the AAP-led government. BJP spokesperson Shehzad Poonawalla took a dig at both the AAP and the Congress, accusing them of indulging in corruption and lacking a common mission or vision for the country.

In response to Rao’s initially positive remarks about the mohalla clinics, the AAP alleged that he received a phone call afterward, leading to a sudden change in his stance.

On Friday, Rao, accompanied by Delhi health minister Saurabh Bharadwaj, visited the ‘Aam Aadmi Mohalla Clinic’ at Panchsheel Park. Initially, he praised the initiative, but later referred to it as “overhyped” after a few hours.

The mohalla clinic initiative by the AAP has been a subject of both praise and criticism, with political parties often using it as a talking point to criticize their rivals. The controversy surrounding the clinics has further intensified the ongoing political tussle between the AAP and the Congress.

The political landscape in Delhi remains dynamic, with each party vying to project their narrative of governance and criticize their opponents. As the war of words continues, the impact on public perception and political dynamics remains to be seen.
