Delhi suffers while AAP ministers pose


New Delhi: Delhi BJP chief Satish Upadhyay blamed Chief Minister and AAP supremo Arvind Kejriwal for staying away from the city while Delhities suffered due to the civic agitation.

“Yesterday, people saw another theatrical show with Delhi ministers posing for photographs while lifting of garbage. But they can no more fool the citizens of Delhi,” he said.

Ministers and agencies of the Delhi government and AAP leaders have started lifting garbage which has been lying unattended on the roads and community bins ever since the strike of civic workers started.

The BJP workers also protested against the Kejriwal government’s reluctance to release municipal funds allegedly to deteriorate the image of the BJP-run corporations.

Upadhyay said the protest marches were taken out and effigies of Kejriwal were burnt by BJP workers in all 14 districts.

The party alleged a scam in garbage lifting and dumping claims of the AAP government.

The Delhi BJP chief said only 19 trucks of PWD and DJB have reached the landfill site and captured in CCTV at landfill sites over the last two days while the AAP government is claiming that 91 truckloads of garbage was removed from roads and community bins.

The Delhi BJP chief surprisingly said that at a time when Delhi is facing a crisis, the Chief Minister has gone to Bangalore for an undergoing treatment.

“We are watching videos of his speeches in various functions in place of his medical treatment,” he said.

Upadhyay said there is Directorate of Local Bodies appointed by Kejriwal government to look after the work of the corporations and by alleging wrongdoings in municipal accounts the government is accusing its own officials.

“We challenge the government that if there is any irregularity in the accounts of corporations then it may lodge police FIR against the mayors and the corporations,” Upadhyay said.
