New Delhi: The Congress on Saturday termed the manifesto of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) as illogical and maintained that it did not possess the experience to run a government.

Congress leader Anand Sharma said no government can fulfil the promises made by the AAP in their 70-point manifesto.

"They know that they will not get a chance to run the government. Only those who do not have experience of running a government make such claims. No government can give these things for free, whether it is the Centre or the state government," he said.

"Even running a municipality needs some income, from where will Kejriwal get money for paying the wages of doctors, nurses and teachers etc, from where will he get the money for new schools, colleges and hospitals. This is very irresponsible, I don't think they can mislead the people of Delhi," he added.

The AAP has released its manifesto for the upcoming Delhi polls, unleashing a slew of promises, including the passing of the Jan Lokpal Bill, enhanced security for women and full statehood for the national capital.

The party has also reiterated its plans of making Delhi a free Wi-Fi city, installing CCTV cameras in public transport as well as special reservations for senior citizens and the youth.

Elections for the 70-seat assembly in Delhi will take place on February 7, with the counting of the votes set for February 10.
