Congress today slammed the Aam Aadmi Party government over the starvation deaths of three minor girls in Delhi, “complete failure of system” in the national capital.
Delhi chief of Congress Ajay Maken stated: “Such a sad and disheartening incident. It raises questions and clearly shows how the overall system has failed.”
He also expressed shock over “malnutrition deaths” in the national capital, which has the highest per capita income in the country. “It raises a lot of questions as the family was residing in Delhi for around four years,” Maken claimed.
“Despite being here for such a long time the family did not have a ration card. How could the elder daughter who went to school die of malnutrition and starvation despite midday meals being provided in the school?
“Where is employment — the father could not work and provide basic nutrition to his children,” the Congress leader asked. Slamming the Arvind Kejriwal government, he said, “Where was the Aam Aadmi canteen which was promised wherein the poor were supposed to get a meal for Rs 10?”
