New Delhi, March 25 (IANS) Accusing the AAP government in Delhi of corruption, the BJP on Saturday said they has failed to fulfil any of its poll promises even after remaining in power for over two years.
Addressing a party rally at the Ramlila Maidan here ahead of municipal corporation polls, Bharatiya Janata Party President Amit Shah said the Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party government was “corrupt” as 13 of its MLAs have been charged with various offences.
“Kejriwal has asked us why the BJP has not waived farmers’ loans in Uttar Pradesh, as promised. You don’t worry. We will fulfil all our promises, but it’s not even a week since we formed the government there,” Shah added.
The BJP chief said the AAP government was not doing anything for the people of Delhi.
“There have been various cases of corruption against AAP MLAs,” he said, adding that there has also been corruption in the Jal Board, Waqf Board and other agencies under the AAP rule.
Shah also criticised Kejriwal for spending money meant for Delhi elsewhere to further his politics.
“Kejriwal makes huge promises before elections; but once the elections are over, he is nowhere to be seen,” he said.
The BJP chief exhorted party workers to go from door to door in the national capital and convince people to vote for the BJP in the April 23 civic polls.
Union Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu said all political parties except the BJP were disintegrating and their leaders were abandoning them to join the BJP.
“The BJP has been winning elections after elections after 2014 and parties like the Congress, Samajwadi Party, AIADMK, AAP and others are disintegrating.
“Ever since Narendra Modi has become the Prime Minister, there has been a movement in the country — the BJP’s flag can be seen across the country,” he said.
Naidu said there was not even a single charge of corruption against the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government in three years.
“During the Congress regime, there would be many corruption cases in a single day, but nobody can accuse us of any corrupt practice,” he said.
Naidu also praised the BJP, saying it was the only party which ensured representation to all sections of society.
“The BJP has maximum persons from the Scheduled Castes, farmers and women as MPs,” he said.
The minister said the government’s demonetisation move was criticised by many but people proved them wrong by giving the BJP a huge mandate in the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections.
