AAP pushed Delhi back 30 years, has turned into synonym for corruption: Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari
Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari on Wednesday said the AAP government has turned into a 'synonym for corruption' and pushed back Delhi by 30 years.
New Delhi: Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari on Wednesday said the AAP government has turned into a "synonym for corruption" and pushed back Delhi by 30 years.
Scores of Delhi BJP workers on Wednesday staged a protest led by Tiwari near Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's residence against alleged corruption by the AAP government on the completion of its three years in office.
The party workers marched towards the chief minister's residence and police had to use water cannons to disperse the crowd.
Attacking the AAP government, Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari said its governance has turned “synonymous with corruption, anarchy and grimy politics”.
He accused the Kejriwal government of pushing back Delhi by 30 years in the last three years with all development works having stalled.
"Everywhere, corruption could be seen. Development works have been stalled and today, Delhi is surprised to see that in spite of its neglectful attitude during the last three years, Arvind Kejriwal is celebrating the anniversary of the government sitting in a hall," Tiwari said.
He alleged that Kejriwal has been teaching lessons of honesty to all political parties but his party’s 20 MLAs violated the constitution and were later on disqualified by the president on the recommendations of the Election Commission.
Tiwari also said that three years ago, Kejriwal came to power by promising free wi-fi, opening 500 new schools, appointing marshals in buses for women's security, installing CCTV cameras and providing corruption-free administration but failed to fulfil them.
Earlier this week, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had said that governments should take every step to prevent the spread of COVID-19
