AAP pats its own back on FB, reminds voters it delivered

In a move to reconnect with Delhiites who voted the Arvind Kejriwal-led party to power in Delhi, the Aam Aadmi Party government is sending cell phone messages telling people about its achievements.

Reiterating the AAP poll slogan “Jo kaha so kiya (We delivered what we promised)”, an SMS apparently sent by the government says in Hindi that it has delivered on the promises of slashing the power tariff by 50 per cent and providing 20 kilolitre of free water monthly to all households.

The message signed by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal also thanks people for “keeping faith”. The Delhi government had made these big-ticket announcements on Wednesday.

Besides reminding voters about its accomplishments, the AAP government is asking people of Delhi to suggest places where public utilities could be set up.

The AAP in its manifesto for the Delhi polls had promised to provide two lakh toilets across Delhi The – about 1.5 lakh of them in slums and and 50,000 toilets in other public areas. Half of the proposed toilets will be for women, the party had said.

According to the Delhi Urban Shelter Improvement Board, which is made the nodal agency to coordinate with different government departments for setting up of new toilets, there are 672 JJ clusters in Delhi.

The official Facebook page of the AAP’s Delhi unit shared public notice issued by its party on Friday while saying it has provided government which is “completely” committed to fulfiling its promises.

In another post on social media, the party claimed that it has delivered on “five major promises in just 10 days”. Its checklist includes announcements on free water, cheaper electricity, regularisation
of contract labour, relief for hawkers, and halt on slum demolition.

The party on social media is also asking parents to report illegal demands of capitation fee during school admission.

“If any school demands donation or the competition fee during the admission process from parents, except for the basic fee declared, go for an audio or video recording of the act. Mail this recording, citing all the details, to the Education Minister,” the party in a post on Facebook said.
