With three dengue and Chikungunya related deaths being reported in the national capital, Arvind Kejriwal-led Delhi government has come under severe criticism for its ministers being away at such a crucial time. According to an India Today report, Delhi government’s key people such as Satyendra Jain, Gopal Rai, Imran Husain, Manish Sisodia and Kejriwal himself were not in town even as a major health crisis erupted. The report suggests that while Kejriwal is busy campaigning for AAP in Punjab. There is also news of him being on a cough treatment trip. Sisodia is in Finland, Gopal Rai in Chhattisgarh and Imran Husain is on a Haj tour. Satyendra Jain, the Health Minister of Delhi, was in Goa!

BJP leader Sambit Patra slammed the Kejriwal government for its lack of apathy. “The capital of the country is reeling under vector-borne diseases, and when Kejriwal is asked questions, he takes to Twitter saying that he should not be questioned. Kejriwal needs to resign. You cannot run away and shun your duty. When people question you, you need to mind your language. You are answerable. Stop calling people who question you dalals.” BJP has come out all guns blazing, slamming the Delhi government. Incidentally, during Delhi elections last year, a lot of prominent ministers of the Modi government had campaigned for BJP.

Watch: Delhi critical with Chikunguniya & Dengue; Kejriwal on a cough treatment trip!

Meanwhile, AAP MLAs are accusing BJP-controlled MCD and other civic bodies for the spurt in dengue, chikungunya cases in the national capital. A few days ago, Satyendra Jain, who is himself missing in action right now, had taken a dig at PM Narendra Modi’s Swachh Bharat campaign. Jain said civic bodies’ “failure” to maintain cleanliness, desilting sewers have effectively “tarnished” the image of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and hit his ambitious Swachh Bharat Mission in the national capital. AAP MLA Jagdish Singh had said despite the Delhi government releasing funds to MCD, they have failed to clean the city due to their alleged corruption leading to spurt in numbers of chikungunya and dengue cases.

A 65-year-old man yesterday died of chikungunya at a hospital in Delhi, in what could be the first fatality from this vector-borne disease in the national capital. Chikungunya cases in the national capital have sharply risen to over 1,000 this season, marking a jump of nearly 90 per cent from its count last week.

    100 Mohalla clinics with free medicines and 150 free tests, 2000 new clrooms in Govt schools and 20 new Govt schools with modern facilities (like swimming pool) and better than Pvt schools, highest compensation to farmers, free water cheap electricity and still Govt collection is increasing, higher VAT collection, ZERO VAT raids, 270 colonies got water pipelines, etc. all in 1.5 years. It show that AAP knows Governance which BJP/Congress couldn't do in 40 years.Recent deaths by chickguinia/malaria is a very sad situation. We should find out whether MCD did fogging/cleaning Delhi, LG shouldn't transfer officers which Delhi CM wants to keep, LG should p bills so Govt can function better.

        This is what happens when you elect s and AAPtards. Delhi people, in-spite of knowing extremely poor record of left in governance in Bengal, Kerala and Tripura, decided to elect an habitual liar called Kejriwal should unfortunately brace up for the challenge and ready to pay for their wrong judgement
