BJP today alleged that the Aam Aadmi Party has failed to keep promises made to the people and said it will hit the streets against the ruling party for operating a "factory of lies". 

Charging AAP with encouraging tanker mafias in the state during summers, BJP also claimed that relatives of MLAs and ministers from the ruling party were "involved in the business".   

"You promised to lay more water pipelines; we want to ask about the length of pipelines you have laid till now? You promised clean water, but people are getting contaminated water. You said tanker mafias will be finished, but you haven't. People in unauthorised colonies and slums are not getting water.          

"There are power cuts for four-five hours, while tariff is set to increase. This shows you have been operating factory of lies in Delhi, you have been cheating people. The BJP is not going to keep quiet over the issues. We will hit streets for rights of people of Delhi," state BJP chief Satish Upadhyay told reporters.      

The BJP claimed that while AAP accused Centre and Lieutenant Governor (Najeeb Jung) of transferring officers in state Government, the Kejriwal-led party has moved 552 men from Delhi Jal Board in just 40 days.  

Meanwhile, referring to row involving senior IAS officer Shakuntala Gamlin and Delhi Minister Satyendra Jain over conversion of leasehold industrial plots to freehold, Upadhyay said an inquiry should be set up in land deals which took place over the past two-and-half months in Bawana area.

Gamlin, whose appointment as acting chief secretary for Delhi had triggered a turf of war between Jung and AAP Government, has complained to the Lieutenant Governor accusing Industries Minister Jain of putting pressure on her to convert industrial plots from leasehold to freehold.      

"We are not against converting plots in Bawana industrial area to freehold. But we want an inquiry into how many plots have been sold or bought over the past two-and-half months there. There are allegations of corruption in it. There is a public perception that people related to AAP are involved in such deals," Upadhyay said.
