New Delhi Jan 26 : A day after President Pranab Mukherjee’s veiled criticism of the AAP in his address to the nation, the party on Sunday said it will carefully consider whatever he has said.

“Whatever President said, we don’t want to make comments in this regard as he is the first citizen of this country. If he has said something about us, we would carefully listen to him and consider it,” Ashutosh, a senior AAP leader and journalist-turned politician, told reporters here.

Mukherjee had on Saturday made a veiled attack on Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal’s street protest saying the government is not “charity shop” and “populist anarchy” cannot be a substitute for governance.

“Government is not a charity shop.Populist Archy cannot be a substitute for governance. False promises lead to disillusionment, which gives birth to rage, and that rage has one legitimate target: those in power,” Mukherjee had said while addressing the nation on the eve of Republic Day.

Minutes after the address, AAP senior leader Yogendra had said the Presidents Speech was not about AAP.
