BJP digs out 'dirt' of Cong rule

Chronicles 52-page-long shortcomings in 15 years of Dikshit govt

The BJP on Sunday released a 52-page chargesheet on 15 years of misrule of Congress in the capital, with price rise, corruption, scams and anti-people policies.

“It contains details of the facts relating to the misdeeds of Sheila Dikshit’s government. If any citizen of Delhi goes through this chargesheet, he will never think of supporting Congress. He will rather vote for BJP and help the party for good governance,” said L K Advani, a senior BJP leader.

“Under the Congress rule, two disasters have happened - corruption and back breaking inflation. Corruption is the biggest problem confronting our society. It is a tax on least privileged citizens. We must have zero-tolerance against corruption,” added  Advani.

“The money lost to corruption can be used in providing schools and hospitals and improve the lives of our people.”

According to BJP’s chief ministerial candidate Harsh Vardhan, the chargesheet mentions the collapsed economic system in Delhi, unemployment, pathetic conditions of health services and unauthorised colonies, pollution of sacred river Yamuna, hellish conditions of 30 lakh people living in Jhuggi-Jhopri colonies.

“It provides detailed data and reasoning about the pathetic condition of education services, fraud with the poor people in the name of housing, chaotic condition of public transport, loot by the power companies, arbitrariness of DJB, collapsed PDS system, and the failed law and order.” he said.

It also gives details of anti-people excise policy encouraging wine consumption, step motherly treatment to villages and industrial areas, and false promise of complete statehood to Delhi, he added.

BJP president Nitin Gadkari said various scams committed during the Congress rule such as sales tax department scam, unauthorised colonies regularisation scam, among others are also mentioned in it.

“This document provides detailed information about the false promises of the chief minister and her discriminatory attitude towards people,” he added. 

According to Harsh Vardhan, corruption is often the result of excessive regulation. “We will simplify rules and procedures to ensure an end to the license-inspector raj in Delhi. We must ensure that honest citizens are not unduly harassed,” he said.

“Our government will be India’s first truly online government. All functions of the government such as receiving applications, granting approvals, providing information, procurement and decision making will get online and hence transparent,” he said.
“This will not only enhance the productivity but will also maintain transparency and respect for the system,” Harsh Vardhan added.
