BJP MP from East Delhi constituency and former cricketer Gautam Gambhir on Saturday ‘rewrote’ the lyrics of the 1954 classic ‘Babuji dheere chalna’ song and mixed it with Ghalib’s couplet, “Humko Maloom hain jannat ki haqiqat lekin, Dil ke khush rakhne ko ‘Ghalib’ yeh khayal accha hain” to take a musical swipe at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. AAP president launched a programme to eliminate potholes from Delhi’s roads.

Kejriwal took to Twitter to say, “The Public Works Department, which is under Delhi government, is responsible for upkeep of a few roads that see the maximum traffic. Rains affect the roads, and people should not face any such inconvenience, this campaign is being launched. This is for the first time that roads are being inspected on such a large scale.”

Gambhir tweeted (in Hindi), “Babuji go slow. There are many potholes in this path. We are aware of Delhi’s reality. But it’s a good thought to keep you happy Arvind Kajriwal.”

Kejriwal said, “50 MLAs of the Aam Aadmi Party will inspect 20-25 km of roads maintained by the PWD. Engineers will accompany them. The MLAs will take photos of potholes and upload their locations and details on an app.”

As the Delhi government is taking steps to improve Delhi’s infrastructure and maintenance and highlighting AAP government’s work, this move comes ahead of the Delhi Assembly elections next year.

In 2015, AAP came up with exceptional results in Assembly elections winning 67 of the 70 seats but the Lok Sabha elections 2019, the BJP clean sweeped Delhi and won all the seven Lok Sabha seats.
