Oppn unhappy with AAP govt's tenure

The Delhi BJP observed the first anniversary day of the AAP government as a “black day” and passed a resolution saying  people are so frustrated with its governance that given a chance they would recall the new party legislators.

The party released black balloons and took out a protest march on Parliament Street, barely a few metres from the venue of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s function to mark the anniversary. 

The Congress also held a separate candlelight march on Sunday to observe the AAP government’s first anniversary as a “day of deceit”.

Delhi Congress chief Ajay Maken led the march from Rajghat to the ITO crossing to mark the one-year of alleged misrule of the AAP government.

During the BJP protest city unit chief Satish Upadhyay said it is very unfortunate that the AAP government which got unprecedented mandate from the people has lost its connect with the common man in just one year. Leader of the Opposition in Assembly Vijender Gupta challenged the Kejriwal government for an open debate on its total failure as Delhi stands plunged into a constitutional and development crisis due to the ruling party leaders’ Leftist politics of confrontation.

Upadhyay said the Kejriwal government has wasted the first year in controversies, leaving people disappointed. 

“When the people make an assessment, they find that this government did not try to do anything in its first year,” he said.

“Not a single development scheme was introduced and it selected the path of confrontation. The formula of the Kejriwal government is to create controversies to attract media attention and indulge in politics,” he said.

Gupta described Kejriwal as autocrat and alleged he has an ego problem. “All that they have given to Delhi is a constitutional crisis and politics of confrontation, he said.  

He appealed to the Chief Minister to shed his politics of confrontation in the interest of Delhi which has lost a lot on development in last 26 months.

East Delhi MP and BJP’s National Secretary Maheish Girri slammed the government on its failure to provide free Wi-Fi as promised.

Girri said Kejriwal spoke a lot on making Delhi a safe city but one year later he has nothing to cite before the people.

Mayors of BJP-run municipal corporations — Ravinder Gupta, Harsh Malhotra and Subhash Arya – blamed the Kejriwal government for trying to sabotage civic services in Delhi. 

Referring to the recent civic strike, Gupta said we will not treat the money given to MCDs as loan but as part of our own pending money.
