Taking potshots at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for not fulfilling the promises made to the people before the assembly elections regarding providing tariff on electricity and water, Delhi BJP chief Satish Upadhyay on Monday alleged that the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Government believes in confrontation and may go on to challenge even constitutional rights.

Taking potshots at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for not fulfilling the promises made to the people before the assembly elections regarding providing tariff on electricity and water, Delhi BJP chief Satish Upadhyay on Monday alleged that the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Government believes in confrontation and may go on to challenge even constitutional rights.

“He (Arvind Kejriwal) had made tall promises, especially with regard to electricity and water. How he has relaxed the electricity bills that is for the people of Delhi to see. When it crosses 401 units, people lose their subsidies,” Upadhyay told ANI here.

“The government has 49 percent share in the Jal Board. So, if the water prices are going up, it is because of Kejriwal’s consent,” he added.

Upadhyay further alleged that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal keeps transferring officials he doesn’t like under various departments every day.

“It keeps coming in newspapers how Kejriwal Government does transfers of officials under various departments every day, those officers who he doesn’t like. But if the Lieutenant Governor (LG) does some appointment, he creates a ruckus, does a confrontation,” said Upadhyay.

“Governments work in collaboration, not in collision. Every time Kejriwal has to challenge every right whether it is the Centre’s, the MCD’s, the LG’s. If allowed to have his way, he will go on to challenge even the constitutional rights,” he added.

Upadhyay said that the people of Delhi had high expectations from a government that had won 67 seats in the assembly elections earlier this year.

“But this government only knows how to argue without doing any work. The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is a complete failure,” he said.

The Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission (DERC) had last week approved a tariff hike of up to six percent for the three distribution companies operating in the region.

The hike, which will come into effect from today, will be applicable for the next three quarters.
