The Opposition BJP and the Congress on Saturday came down heavily on the AAP-led state government, saying its vision for the state did not include measures to address most problems faced by the national capital.

 Senior BJP leader Jagdish Mukhi alleged that the government had come up with a year wise data on how it planned to construct 500 schools in Delhi, which the party had promised in its manifesto. “The government should tell how many schools is it planning to construct this year, the location and the source of money for the same,” he said and questioned its failure to look into the acts of corruption done by the  previous Congress-led state government.

“In the name of austerity, you held the chief minister’s swearing in ceremony at the Ramlila  Maidan, but spent a huge amount. There is no austerity at all but drama,” the BJP leader  said.  Many BJP MLAs raised a hue and cry in the House on the AAP’s views over the referendum in Kashmir. They also criticised state Law Minister Somnath Bharati for allegedly issuing a directive to Law Secretary to convene a meeting of judges with him.

Leader of the Opposition in the Delhi Assembly Harshvardhan alleged that the plight of hundreds of Pakistani Hindu refugees here was being ignored by the state government.
