Focus on roads and pollution: Kejriwal AAP govt has failed the people, set back city by 30 years, alleges BJP
Chief minister Arvind Kejriwal also promises Wifi in a year, CCTVS from March
NEWDELHI: The Bharatiya Janata Party’s Delhi unit organised a rally and protest outside chief minister Arvind Kejriwal’s residence on Wednesday, for allegedly failing the people of Delhi and setting the city back by 30 years.
Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari hit out at the government for “repeating the promises over the years, without finding any solutions to the issues of pollution, an allegedly failing healthcare sector and the water problem”.
“When traffic gets bad, they stop cars. When pollution gets bad, they close schools. When water gets contaminated, they shut down water supply. It would be better if they close down the government, we don’t need them in Delhi,” said Tiwari.
Tiwari did not hold back punches, and said that the government had set the city back by 30 years in their three years of governance, and also accused Kejriwal of shielding his “corrupt” ministers.
“(Kejriwal’s) biggest fight today was to save Satyender Jain (who has been accused of money laundering) from going to jail. It was like the entire effort of the three years was in saving Satyender Jain. This relationship tells you that Satyender Jain is not just a corrupt minister, but also Arvind Kejriwal’s partner in corruption,” he said.
The BJP said its protesters were dealt with “heavy force” by the police when they reached near the CM’S residence on Wednesday. The police used water cannons to disperse protesters in which Tiwari was injured, it was claimed.
Additional DCP, Harinder Kumar Singh, said the demonstrators were attempting to breach the security barricades, and the police had to respond accordingly.
