New Delhi, Feb 13 (IANS) Terming the first year of the AAP government in Delhi as a “black year” in the history of the capital, the Delhi BJP on Saturday said the city government failed to fulfill its poll promises and “deceived” the people.
“The last one year has proved to be a black year in the history of Delhi. Delhiites last year gave a historic mandate to the Aam Aadmi Party seeking a change in polity but it turned out to be a year of betrayal,” Delhi BJP chief Satish Upadhyay told reporters.
He said that by raising a new constitutional crisis every day, the Delhi government blocked development and administration work.
Leader of Opposition in the Delhi assembly Vijender Gupta presented a report on how the Kejriwal government’s “habit” of creating constitutional crisis and conflicts brought development and administrative work to a standstill.
“The year turned out to be a year of deceit. The government has brought development and administration to a standstill by creating constitutional conflicts,” Gupta said.
Ramesh Bidhuri, the BJP Lok Sabha member from South Delhi, raised the issue of the Kejriwal government’s “betrayal” in the name of regularising unauthorised colonies and villages in the city.
The AAP government will complete one year in office on Sunday. To mark the day, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his cabinet will answer questions from the people during a live phone-in programme at the NDMC Convention Centre on Sunday.
Upadhyay said the Delhi BJP will observe a ‘Protest Day’ on Sunday.
“Tomorrow (Sunday), we will hold a protest at Jantar Mantar against the completion of one year of the AAP government which has failed to fulfil its promises made during the assembly elections,” Upadhyay said.
