“Problems are aplenty, chikungunya and dengue have spread throughout Delhi, yet Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Deputy CM Manish Sisodia are nowhere to be seen,” reads on of Congress leader Ajay Maken’s tweet, while he has urged the people of Delhi to participate in the ‘Bhagoda Diwas’. Today on September 16, state opposition party Congress is observing ‘Bhagoda Diwas’ in 70 assembly constituencies against the Kejriwal-led AAP government and has said that it will release facts based charge sheet against the CM. According to a blog site of former Union minister Ajay Maken, he today said, “It is extremely unfortunate that, while Delhiites are facing an epidemic like situation, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was campaigning in Punjab and later went away to Bangalore. Deputy CM Manish Sisodia is holidaying in Finland; even the Lt. Governor was retreating in the United States, and even one of the mayors was out for a foreign jaunt.”
In a bid to expose Kejriwal’s alleged playing of ‘victim card’, Maken accused Kejriwal government in may aspects using surveys and data. Maken also said that while Kejriwal says he doesn’t have the money to buy a pen, his party;s first agenda was to increase the salary of the MLA’s by 400 percent. He accused Kejriwal of spending crores of rupees in advertisements but not in addressing public issues. “The two years of misgovernance in Delhi, coupled with the constant media stunts by AAP and BJP, has left the common man completely helpless. Nonetheless, swelling fatalities in the National Capital on account of Chikungunya and Dengue is a gross failure of the constitutional duty of the Delhi Government and a violation of the Right to Life guaranteed by the Constitution of India,” Maken said.
From medical services to other developments, Ajay Maken lambasted Arvind Kejriwal government on many issues. Congress also made an appeal to the Aam Aadmi Party to take actions in the health scare in the state. Asking CM Kejriwal and Sisodia to return to the state, Congress said, “The AAP Government, Lt. Governor and top officers of the three MCDs should sit across the table and forget their grievances so that a working relationship could be formed to tackle the chikungunya and dengue outbreak.” Earlier Maken had said, “Kejriwal should resign if he’s unable to govern. We are ready to govern Delhi and deliver under the present setup.”
