Press Trust of India New Delhi
Delhi Congress today accused the AAP government of cutting down the number of beneficiaries of welfare schemes for the poor and marginalised sections.

The Delhi government is anti-minorities and against the marginalised sections, alleged senior Delhi Congress leader and former minister Haroon Yusuf.

"The AAP government has drastically cut down the number of beneficiaries under schemes meant for the welfare of the poor and the marginalized sections of society," he claimed.

He also charged that AAP government of putting in "cold storage" several schemes launched by previous Congress government in the city.

Ever since the AAP came to power in Delhi three years ago, all welfare schemes for the poor and the marginalised, initiated by the previous Congress government have been put in cold storage, he alleged.

During the 15-year Congress rule in Delhi, many welfare schemes were initiated, particularly in the education sector, to help the poor and the marginalised section, claimed chief spokesperson of Delhi Congress Sharmistha Mukherjee.
