Congress distances itself from Ramesh`s remark on AAP
New Delhi: Congress on Wednesday distanced itself from the remark of Union minister Jairam Ramesh in which he appeared to have suggested that Aam Aadmi Party would not have emerged had the Lokpal bill been passed two years ago.
"This can be his personal opinion and observation and he does not have any information on it," AICC general secretary Shakeel Ahmed said at the party briefing when asked about Ramesh`s comment.
In an apparent reference to the Congress` defeat at the hands of AAP in the Delhi Assembly polls, Ramesh had said, "We could have brought Lokpal bill two years back. We did not bring it. Had we been able to bring Lokpal bill two years, we would not have faced this much of problem."
The Union minister had also asked the political class not to make fun of AAP.
"Making fun of them would be proved wrong," he said.
