JALANDHAR: Ahead of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's visit here, posters have sprung up all over the city questioning the performance of the AAP government.         

The posters in Punjabi, reading 'Ek Saal, Delhi Behaal', bear a large image of a worried-looking Kejriwal and can be spotted at several public places and on flyovers across the city where the AAP National Convenor is scheduled to attend different programs during his three-hour visit tomorrow.         

Further, the posters list "undelivered" promises of the AAP government during their one year in power. "Kejriwal made a promise to open 500 schools but not a single new school has been started. He promised recruitment for 55,000 government jobs, but only 1,500 posts have been filled up," the posters state.  

The posters also questioned the AAP government's commitment on issues like health facilities, security and installation of CCTV cameras. AAP's local leader Rajeev Chaudhary said it was an attempt to gain cheap publicity.       

"This has been orchestrated by rival parties. The fact that these posters do not have bear a credit line proves they are in panic mode. They should instead confront us head-on," Chaudhary, AAP's zonal observer said.          

He said the party would consult their legal team and take up the matter with the appropriate authority once Kejriwal finishes his 5-day Punjab tour.
