AAP steal­ing credit for cleaner air in city: BJP

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - Times City -

New Delhi: State BJP chief Manoj Ti­wari on Tues­day al­leged that the AAP-led Delhi gov­ern­ment was tak­ing credit for re­duc­ing pol­lu­tion in the city, but it was mainly the ef­forts of the Cen­tre that led to the cleaner air.

Ti­wari ac­cused chief min­is­ter Arvind Ke­jri­wal of try­ing to “steal” credit from the Modi gov­ern­ment for bring­ing down air pol­lu­tion lev­els in the cap­i­tal. The BJP leader al­leged that the Delhi gov­ern­ment did not fol­low di­rec­tions of the CPCB with re­gard to steps to check the me­nace in the city.

Re­act­ing to the charge, AAP chief spokesper­son Sau­rabh Bhard­waj said Ti­wari should take all the credit for re­duced pol­lu­tion in Delhi and hold Ke­jri­wal re­spon­si­ble for high pol­lu­tion lev­els in neigh­bour­ing towns of Ghazi­abad and Gu­ru­gram. “We agree with Manoj Ti­wari, let BJP take all the credit for re­duc­ing the air pol­lu­tion in Delhi. Let Ke­jri­wal be re­spon­si­ble for ris­ing pol­lu­tion lev­els in Noida and Gu­ru­gram be­cause he is not let­ting Yogi Adityanath and Manohar Lal Khat­tar work in Ut­tar Pradesh and Haryana, re­spec­tively,” he said.
