BJP protests against Kejriwal, says AAP pushed Delhi 30 years back


New Delhi : The BJP on Wednesday staged a protest outside Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s residence, accusing his AAP government of pushing the city 30 years behind in three years of its rule.

On the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government, thousands of BJP workers led by Delhi chief Manoj Tiwari assembled near Chandgi Ram Akhada in north Delhi and walked towards Kejriwal’s residence, shouting slogans like “Kejriwal, Kaha gaya tera wada (Kejriwal, what about your promises?)”, “Jhootha Kejriwal (Kejriwal is a liar)” and “Kejriwal Sharm karo (Jejriwal, be ashamed)”.

The Delhi Police use mild force to stop the demonstrating Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers and a few BJP activists including Tiwari were injured when water cannons were used.

Addressing the party workers, Tiwari, who is the MP from northeast Delhi, said: “In three years of his governance, Kejriwal has pushed Delhi 30 years back in terms of development.”

He also said Kejriwal had got a setback from his Minister Satyendar Jain’s corruption, and this was the reason why he is celebrating the third anniversary with few people in a hall instead with the city’s people, reports IANS.
