Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday highlighted the work done by the ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government to assert that the party is not pro-poor alone.
“Some people say AAP works only for the poor, what has it done for the middle class?” Kejriwal asked in a tweet before proceeding to underline the work done by his government in education and power.
He said that there is 24-hour power supply in Delhi and cheapest in India.
“Private schools are not allowed to increase fee, and those who increased were forced to refund. Now there is 24-hour power supply in Delhi, cheapest power in India, water reaches through pipelines in poor and middle class areas,” Kejriwal tweeted.

Kejriwal, who came to power in 2015 with a landslide election victory, said he was “glad that both poor as well as middle class people are benefiting from the hard and honest work of the Delhi government”.
The national capital is slated to go for Assembly elections in early 2020.
In the recently-concluded Lok Sabha elections, the AAP drew a blank in Delhi. The BJP won all seven LS seats.
The AAP won just one seat in the Lok Sabha – in Punjab’s Sangrur. AAP’s Bhagwant Mann retained his seat by defeating Kewal Singh Dhillon of Congress.
