New Delhi, Feb 12 (IANS) As the AAP government in Delhi gets ready to tell people about its achievements on the completion of one year in office on Sunday, the BJP and the Congress plan to issue their own report cards on its “failures and misrule”.

Kejriwal and his ministers will mark the first anniversary of their government with a ‘telethon’ — taking phone calls from the people of Delhi for their feedback and offering them a report card on the government.

However, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) said it planned to release Arvind Kejriwal government’s report card, highlighting its failures.

“We will issue a 70-point note on the promises made by the Kejriwal government tomorrow (Saturday). We will also release an audio-video campaign on the failures of the Aam Aadmi Party government in one year,” Delhi BJP’s media convener Praveen Shanker Kapoor told IANS.

The Congress Delhi unit will also release a booklet criticising the AAP government.

“Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee president Ajay Maken will release a booklet against the Kejriwal government’s one-year misrule on Saturday at the party headquarters,” a DPCC statement said.

The statement said the Congress will observe February 14, the day Kejriwal took oath as Delhi chief minister in 2015, as ‘Chhalawa Diwas’ (day of deception). Maken has even lent his voice to a radio campaign announcing a protest at the Raj Ghat here on February 14.

“The Aam Aadmi Party completes one year in government on February 14. My cabinet will give an account of (the) work done in 1 year to people on that day,” Kejriwal had tweeted.

“On February 14, between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., our cabinet will also take questions and suggestions from people on phone,” he said in a series of tweets.
