Satish Upadhyay, president of the party’s Delhi unit, said the central government has given funds to the Delhi government to pay the salaries of the sanitation workers, who are on a strike over its non-payment. Consequently, huge piles of garbage have been dumped on many roads in east Delhi, causing immense discomfort to citizens.
“The central government has already given you money. Stop dragging Prime Minister (Narendra) Modi into it… stop playing petty politics,” Upadhyay said at a press conference here.
The Bharatiya Janata Party leader said that Kejriwal was not serious about solving problems of the people and that he was interested in blame game only. “You (Kejriwal) don’t know how to govern. You have been busy fighting ever since you took over (as chief minister),” he said. Earlier in the day, the ruling Aam Aadmi Party said that BJP was politicising the issue of the striking sanitation workers as it was the BJP which rules the civic bodies in the city.
The Congress has accused both the AAP and the BJP for the mess in Delhi with party vice president Rahul Gandhi extending full support to the workers.
