"If there is a competition in the country of making false promises, Kejriwal would definitely get the first prize. I have come to remind you that you forgot the promises you made, but neither the people of Delhi nor BJP workers have forgotten," Shah said.

The Union minister was addressing a public meeting in West Delhi's Matiala constituency ahead of the assembly polls on 8 February.

"You became the chief minister with the help of Anna Hazare but couldn't bring a law for Lokpal and when Modiji brought it you didn't implement it here," he said.

For four and a half years the chief minister kept saying Prime Minister Narendra Modi did not let him work so development could not be done in Delhi, Shah said.

"Now, you (Kejriwal) are saying that you developed Delhi in five years so 'lage raho Kejriwal'," he added.
