New Delhi: Delhi BJP president Manoj Tiwari today urged Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to “give up” his full statehood demand and work for the people. Claiming that there has been an “unprecedented political logjam” in the three years of the AAP government.
In a letter to Kejriwal, he alleged that in the “politically motivated logjam”, the development of the city has been the biggest casualty in the last three years.
Claimed two crore people were “crippled” due to “lack” of proper water and electricity supply and “depleted” public transport system, Tiwari said, “I therefore urge you to give up your demand for full statehood and provide people with adequate supply of water and power.”
The Delhi BJP chief demanded the AAP government to procure 2000 e-buses to boost public transport and control vehicular pollution.
Tiwari said it is “sad” to see the Kejriwal government being at loggerheads again with the Lt Governor over the issue of transfer and posting of bureaucrats in less than a day after Supreme Court verdict.
“The Supreme Court order has no reference regarding the services issue but the way the Kejriwal government has been fighting with the Lt Governor over transfer and posting of bureaucrats even after yesterday’s order, it seems it has a hidden agenda,” he said.
Following the Supreme Court verdict, the people of Delhi expected the Kejriwal government to provide better water and power supply, public transport facilities, and fight pollution, but it is “saddening” that it has started a new “controversy” over posting of bureaucrats, Tiwari said.
