BJP’s CM candidate for Delhi Dr Harshvardhan speaks about development under the Vajpayee government and the Congress government in Delhi with The New Indian Express Editorial Director Prabhu Chawla during Teekhi Baat on IBN7. Excerpts:

People here don’t believe in BJP.

How can you say that people are making us lose for 15 years? In these 15 years, we have won 7 Lok Sabha seats. In 1999, we won all seven Lok Sabha seats of Delhi.

It seemed that Vijay Goel would be the candidate. What did people see one month before the elections that they felt you could give better results than him? 

Vijay Goel is a very good and a hard working leader. He works with innovation. And I like him from within my heart and he too does the same. For any post, in your channel, if anyone has to be made the chief, it is only one person, it cannot be two.

Sheilaji says her work is seen, development is seen, that is their slogan. Arvind Kejriwal says that he is fighting against corruption, there is proof and image. What slogan does Dr Harshvardhan have?

I don’t know what development Sheilaji talks about.

But they are expensive even in Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat…

In the old days, when onions was sold at Rs. 30 per kilo for three weeks, Congress people were wearing onion garlands, now why doesn’t Sheilaji wear garlands.

Roads...

Roads in which thousands of crores have been spent, and there are potholes on roads after a spell of rain. Don’t you remember the picture before the Common Wealth Games? A road was made near the Yamuna and it had potholes on the third day. What development you are talking about? Go to the slums. People don’t get a square meal to eat. There are no toilets in Delhi. Read their Delhi human development report— 84 per cent people do not get adequate water. The water they get is dirty. In schools, there is shortage of 15,000 teachers even today. There are no essential medicines in hospitals.

You mean there is no development…

Will there be any accountability? In GB Panth hospital, 50 per cent fatalities are being recorded
