As the Aam Aadmi Party nears the completion of its first year in office, the BJP state unit on Saturday termed the AAP government as "year of confrontations", and demanded that the Centre "dismiss" the Arvind Kejriwal dispensation for "violations of the Constitution".
The party will also observe ‘Protest Day’ on Sunday. Delhi BJP president Satish Upadhyay, National Secretary Tarun Chugh, National Secretary Sardar RP Singh, Leader of the Opposition in Delhi Assembly Vijender Gupta, and general secretary MP Ramesh Bidhuri on Saturday addressed a press conference exposing the failures of Kejriwal Government.
Wherein the Vijender Gupta and Ramesh Bidhuri demanded that the Centre "dismiss" the AAP government.
Gupta referred to a list of 52 notifications released by Delhi government and claimed these were in "violation of the Constitution and laid down rules".
He said, "The central government should not overlook the violations of the Constitution. I will soon meet Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh and apprise him of major instances of violation of the Constitution, laws and rules by AAP government."
While Bidhuri said the Centre should "dismiss" the city government.
The Arvind Kejriwal government will complete one year in office on Sunday.
The government has issued phone numbers through which Chief Minister and his cabinet colleagues will interact with the people.
Presenting the first year Report Card of Delhi Government, Satish Upadhyay said, Mahila Morcha workers most fairly conducted a survey in the markets, weekly bazaars, jhuggi bastis etc and contacted women and youth. The sentiments of the people reflected in these surveys are baffling.
Upadhyay said, "We correlated our in house independent survey reports with the several TV channels survey reports and we find they reflect the same sentiment. Fairly speaking three of the every five persons in Delhi today feel dejected with the performance of Kejriwal Government."
He said as we analyse the Government’s performance on the basis of people’s feedback, the Report Card gives a zero out of ten to the Government.
He said amongst the promises which Delhi Government made to the people, electricity at half rates and free water for all were the main.
One year later, Delhi continues to get electricity at the same rates while the power discoms got a lot of subsidies. Be it, unauthorised colonies, jhuggi clusters, group housing societies, villages or other colonies in the city nowhere the water is free.
Youth of Delhi are downcast with the Delhi Government as the promise of free Wi-Fi which Kejriwal party sold a lot continues to remain a chimera. Opening of new schools or colleges remain a distant dream and even the classes in existing schools have failed the students due to lack of teaching staff.
A party which came to power selling a dream of 8 lakh jobs has not provided even 8 jobs to ordinary people even as it has hired an army of party volunteers in Government co-terminus jobs on fat salaries.
"Health services in Delhi are on a verge of collapse. Be it, government hospitals or health centres everywhere there is mayhem. A government sold a dream of Aam Aadmi Poly Clinics but in one year just one poly clinic has seen the light of day even as most existing health centres have shut down," said Upadhyay.
On Sunday, Delhi BJP will hold a protest at Jantar Mantar against the completion of one year of the AAP government which has failed to fulfill its promises made during the Assembly elections.
The Congress will observe on Saturday as Chhalawa Divas to mark the first anniversary of the AAP government of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in Delhi to highlight the failures of the government.
A booklet in the form of a report card on the performance of Delhi Government was released by DPCC president Ajay Makan and party colleague P C Chacko along with several party leaders to the media here today.
A short film was screened highlighting the failures of Delhi Government.
Maken focused on the failures, "double speak and going back on all the promises" made by Kejriwal and Aam Aadmi Party to the people of Delhi, thereby deceiving the citizens of Delhi.
The report card gave 0 marks out of 100 to one year of Governance of the Kejriwal government. Among the areas of focus in the report are U-turn on principles, failure of governance, development, price rise, anti-women as also let down of poor and marginalised sections, non-understanding of procedures and tall claims and over-hype by Aam Aadmi Party.
