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.
