Bhushan uncertain over AAP-led government’s tenure


New Delhi, Dec 23 :

Aam Aadmi Party leader Prashant Bhushan Monday said he was uncertain over how long the tenure of the minority government would be, considering the past record of the Congress which has decided to support the AAP.

Bhushan said AAP with 28 seats in the 70-member assembly has decided to form the government after receiving opinions from people, but he suspects the Congress which has given outside support with its eight legislators.

“Given the past track record of the Congress, I don’t expect that our government will survive for long… one month, four months or six months, it is to be seen,” Bhushan said.

He said that even though it will be a minority government, “we are prepared not to accept any condition by Congress or BJP”.

“We will be faithfully implementing our agenda and our manifesto promises. We are not forming the government given the fact that it may for a certain period of time,” he said.

Bhushan also said the AAP was forming the government to show the people of the country that there are different ways of running a government than what is being practised by the Congress and BJP.

He said it was possible to run a government on the basis of people’s opinions and their views.

“It is possible in this country to run a government by doing away with the VIP culture. It is possible to run a government for the purpose of changing the political system, make it more responsive to the people and that’s the message we want to give,” Bhushan said.  (IANS)
