New Delhi: The BJP’s Delhi unit on Saturday put up a series of hoardings across the national capital in which it criticized the Arvind Kejriwal-led government for spending Rs.526 crore for its advertisement campaign.

In the hoardings, the Bharatiya Janata Party asked Chief Minister Kejriwal to answer “why have you wasted Rs.526 crore on publicity when this fund could be utilised to put up five lakh cameras for women’s security”.

The BJP hoardings also said as many as “200 new schools and 50 new colleges can be opened with this money and people can get 2,000 new buses.

“Five lakh people can get pension for one year and one lakh youth can get employment while 1,000 unauthorised colonies can get drinking water with that amount of money”.

The development came after the Aam Aadmi Party government had installed hoardings asking Prime Minister Narendra Modi not to intervene in its functioning.

“Pradhanmantri sir, please! Delhi sarkar ko kam karne dijiye. Delhi sarkar theek kam kar rahi hai. (Prime minister sir, please let the Delhi government work. The Delhi government is working fine),” said the AAP’s hoardings.

Later, the AAP removed these hoardings to pay homage to former president A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, who passed away earlier this week.

Reacting to the BJP’s hoardings, AAP spokesperson Dilip Pandey told IANS: “Instead of doing serious politics they are indulging in opportunistic politics.

“The AAP is already working on the points raised in their (BJP’s) hoardings. For instance we are deploying marshals in buses for women safety,” Pandey said.

“BJP should let us do our work, the public knows what we are doing even if they don’t,” he added.

With most senior leaders in the BJP having retired from active politics, the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) is now looking towards building a new leadership. Later this month, the RSS will be holding camps in Uttar Pradesh to discuss ways to identify and groom young leaders.

According to a senior RSS functionary in Lucknow, the first camp in this regard will be held in Jhansi, possibly on June 29 and RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat will be attending it. Another camp is scheduled to be held in Lucknow.

“After Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah, there seems to be a dearth of second rung leadership in the bhBJP. There is a need to develop leadership that will carry forward the work initiated by these two leaders.

“Rajnath Singh is a senior leader, but his age is 67. He would have crossed 70 by the time the next general elections are held in 2024. We have to identify and inculcate leadership qualities in the younger lot,” the functionary said.

He further said that identifying young talent that could be groomed for greater responsibilities was a continuous process in the organisation and it never stopped.

“It is not a sudden decision but the RSS leadership always has a vision for the future and thinks ahead. We keep finding young people with leadership skills,” the functionary added.

Earlier this month, the RSS chief had underlined the need for checking misuse of power at a four-day camp that he addressed in Kanpur.

“Those getting elected in a democratic set-up have immense power, but this does not mean that it should be misused. If the government falters at any point of time, the Sangh will give it advice and suggestions with a positive point of view,” he had said.

The RSS chief had also discussed the topics of nationalism, social equality and service in his interaction with over 600 volunteers. He also focused on qualitative development of the Sangh volunteers and apprised them of his views on dedication towards society.

The RSS leadership is also expected to come to Lucknow for a separate camp at the end of this month. In Lucknow, the RSS leaders will pay homage to senior journalist Rajnath Singh Surya, who passed away earlier this month. Surya was also a senior RSS functionary.

Officially, however, the RSS office bearers said that they had yet to receive any programme of Bhagwat and said that such camps were a ‘routine affair’. (IANS)
