New Delhi, March 10, 2017-

Dear Mr. Kejriwal:

My name is Jai Nath Misra and I have lived in London, UK for over 60 years. I belong to AAP supporters group which you are quite familiar with.You may recall I came to Delhi in September 2013 about three months before the Delhi Vidhan Sabha election with a view to help AAP in its election campaign. During the campaign, I shared the ‘manch‘ with you on many occasions but never had the chance to have a one to one conversation. 

Jai Nath Misra

Over the last two and a half years that you have been CM of Delhi in my view, you have completely drifted away from the core principles of AAP as enunciated by you and others in the book ‘ Swaraj’.

Removing the list of donors from the AAP website was the last straw that broke the camels back and as a result, I now write to you from the platform of ‘Chanda bandh Satyagraha’ that we have initiated against the opaque financial practices of AAP, led by Dr. Munish Raizada.

Your latest ploy of making Delhi to look like London is yet another jumla or sound bite to fool Delhi electorate. I have lived in U.K. For over 60 years and I know that it has taken almost the same number of years for the development of London to arrive at its present state of a well-developed city.

Can I, therefore, ask you as to how you propose to change Delhi in next two and a half years to look like London? If you recall your previous statement where you said ‘ give me power and I will give you a chamchamati (shining) Delhi’. Two and a half years later with you as CM of Delhi. it remains a heap of garbage.

Don’t you think sir, that it is time for you to have a complete change in your approach to govern Delhi and go back to the real constitution of AAP that you put your signature on!

Waiting for your reply!

Yours Sincerely,

Jai Nath Misra

The BJP on Monday held Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal responsible for the death of a sanitation worker in a drain saying that the government was playing with their lives as they are not given protective gear.

“This is not the first time that such an incident has happened. Due to the negligence of the government, sanitation staff goes for cleaning sewers and dies there after inhaling toxic fumes. They are never saved even after rescue operations,” Delhi BJP Chief Manoj Tiwari told reporters here.

His remarks come a day after a sanitation worker choked to death after he got trapped inside an underground drain while cleaning it in north Delhi’s Jahroda area.

The work of cleaning the drain was being carried out by the Delhi government’s flood control department.

“Sanitation workers are our helpers and Kejriwal government is playing with their lives,” he said.

Highlighting the deaths of sanitation workers in Delhi in the past few years, the BJP MP from the North East Delhi Lok Sabha constituency said that in September 2018, five sanitation workers died while in August 2017, 10 died inside sewers.

“Kejriwal is responsible for the deaths of sanitation workers who die while cleaning sewers and the investigating agencies should take action against him,” he said.

Attacking Kejriwal, Tiwari said, “During the last three to four years, more than 60 workers have died.”

He also accused Kejriwal of not fulfilling his promise of providing safety equipment to sewer workers and mechanical sweeping.

A senior Delhi Police official said that it has registered a case under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code over the death of the sanitation worker.

The sanitation worker has been identified as Kishan, 37, a resident of north Delhi’s Wazirabad area.
