New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday appealed to students of Delhi University to start honest politics in the coming Delhi University Students Union (DUSU) polls. Interacting with students at the Aam Aadmi Party’s song and dance show “DURock” at Talkatora indoor stadium, Kejriwal said: “People of Delhi gave us a historic mandate by giving us 67 out of 70 seats. Delhi people have started honest politics in this country. We have started a trend of clean politics at the state level, now it is your responsibility to start honest student politics in the Delhi University elections.” “We all know how corruption and muscle power is there in student politics. Everyone know crores of rupees are spent during students’ union elections.

But I have full faith that the beginning of clean and honest student politics will start from Delhi University,” he said. The AAP organised the rock concert to woo freshers of Delhi University before the students’ union elections. Kejriwal further said: “We will make Delhi the first free Wi-Fi zone in the country. At first, we will provide this facility in colleges of Delhi University. For this, we are making constant efforts. “Celebrities like Vishal Dadlani, Raghu Ram, Jasleen Royal and Shilpa Rao, and music band Astitva performed at the event. The rock concert was attended by Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia and AAP’s Delhi convener Dilip Pandey.

Kejriwal’s address held significance as the AAP’s student wing CYSS is making its debut in the DUSU polls slated to be held on September 11. Kejriwal further said: “The AAP government’s education loan scheme to students of Delhi will be implemented from this month. The first cheques in this connection will be distributed on September 8.” “Around 70 percent corruption has been abolished. We promise to make Delhi the first corruption free state of the country. Similarly, we will bring Delhi University among the top 100 universities of the world,” he said. The CYSS has fielded Garima Rana, Rahul Raj Aryan, Kuldeep Bidhuri and Hitanshi Chauhan for the DUSU polls. All four candidates also interacted with the students.

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.
