NEW DELHI: BJP and Congress leaders in Delhi hit out at the Aam Aadmi Party's senior leadership for staging protest at LG house on Tuesday stating that it's a diversion tactic of the party for administrative failure in Delhi.
"When Congress government in the past worked in the same constitutional set up in Delhi, then why the drama now by Arvind Kejriwal?. This is just a diversion tactic to hide the complete breakdown of government functioning in Delhi. Kejriwal's party does not have any ideology and that was the reason it said that if more power is given to the Delhi government, then it was ready to do election campaign for the BJP" said Delhi Congress Pradesh Committee, leader Ajay Maken.
Similarly the BJP which has three MLAs in Delhi Assembly hit out saying that Kejriwal with is his senior leadership is "hiding" in the LG house as they do not want to face the people, who are under tremendous problem due to water and electricity scarcity in the national capital.
"The leadership of Delhi government is inexperienced one, they just blame the centre for every issue. Arvind Kejriwal and others who are in the LG office are trying to hide themselves from the people of Delhi because they know nothing has been done on the ground" said Delhi BJP President Manoj Tiwari.
A former minister in the previous Shiela Dikshit government in Delhi, Arvinder Singh Lovely said "Delhi should have been the role model in the field of education for other cities but under the regime of Kejriwal, the education standard in government schools has come down. At the time when Congress came to power in Delhi, the dropout rate was 7.5 per cent but through the welfare schemes of the Congress Government, it came down to 2.1 per cent, but unfortunately, during the Kejriwal regime, this ratio has gone upto 3.8 per cent".
The Delhi unit of the BJP will also go to the Chief Minister's residence tomorrow demanding the report on the actions taken by the government in regard with providing clean drinking water to people.
