NEW DELHI: At­tack­ing the “cur­rent gen­er­a­tion” of the Congress lead­er­ship for weak­en­ing “what their an­ces­tors es­tab­lished” in terms of set­ting “healthy prece­dents” in par­lia­men­tary democ­racy, fi­nance min­is­ter Arun Jait­ley on Thurs­day said the Aam Aadmi Party’s suc­cess in Delhi seems to have “mis­led” the Congress that “vul­gar­ity” brought votes.

This came a day af­ter the win­ter ses­sion of Par­lia­ment ended af­ter re­peated dis­rup­tions, es­pe­cially in the Ra­jya Sabha, with the Congress de­mand­ing Jait­ley’s res­ig­na­tion in con­nec­tion to al­leged ir­reg­u­lar­i­ties in the Delhi & Dis­trict Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion (DDCA).

The min­is­ter headed the DDCA for about a decade but was not in­volved in its day-to-day ac­tiv­i­ties, as noted byy the Se­ri­ous Fraud In­ves­ti­ga­tion Of­fice ( SFIO) thathat cleared him of all charges dur-dur­ing the UPAPA regime.
