While Sheila Dikshit is leading Congress as the face of Uttar Pradesh Assembly Elections, her son Sandeep Dixit has expressed his dissatisfaction with the party's Delhi leadership.
Expressing his 'grave concern and fear' for current leadership of the Delhi Congress, Dikshit said that it had 'prospered by being her counterpoint and has made abusing her its rallying point.'
"The Delhi Congress presents a difficult picture to me. It is led by a person who has consistently and directly attacked Sheila Dikshit, with his stories, innuendoes and defamatory propaganda," he wrote in a block while Attacking Delhi Congress for consistently attacking Sheila Dikshit.
While asserting that Delhi Congress was trying to discredit Sheila Dikshit deliberately, Dixit pointed out that it 'prepared a false synopsis the CAG's Commonwealth report, putting in fabricated charges against Sheila Dikshit.'
"The Delhi Congress presents a difficult picture to me. It is led by a person who has consistently and directly attacked Sheila Dikshit, with his stories, innuendoes and defamatory propaganda."
"He prepared a false synopsis of the CAG's Commonwealth report, putting in fabricated charges, and sent them to a media house even before
the CAG report was published, and that media house broadcast these allegations," he wrote.
"I am in the Indian National Congress, but as far as its Delhi unit is concerned, I cannot accept a leadership whose sole objective was to discredit the Congress government in Delhi under Sheila Dikshit," he added.
"Wherever I can, in my own small way, I am trying to counter the influence of the Sangh, and trying to do what I can to help the Congress as it rebuilds itself to claim its primacy in Indian politics," Dixit wrote.
