New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Dilip Pandey on Saturday said that the Congress Party had no right to point fingers at his party`s functioning and added that Delhi`s Budget was made in consultation with the people.
Pandey, who was reacting to Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee (DPCC) chief Ajay Maken`s remark that whether the AAP had consulted the people of Delhi before demanding a salary hike for the MLAs, said they have not been able to understand participative democracy despite being such an old party.
"Whatever I want to do at my home, I will not ask others. When the matter pertains to people, we will discuss it with people. AAP is the first party to make a budget by consulting people...AAP is doing its work, whenever there is a need to ask people we will do it," Pandey said.
A delegation of 20 AAP legislators had yesterday met Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal demanding a hike in their salaries.
According to reports, the MLAs have cited problems in meeting expenses that include the cost of maintaining an office in their constituencies, transportation and running a household.
