'Paanch Sawaal': BJP questions Arvind Kejriwal over AAP's water, power claims
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) continued its series of 'Paanch Sawaal' on Sunday and posed its fourth set of questions to Arvind Kejriwal.
New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) continued its series of 'Paanch Sawaal' on Sunday and posed its fourth set of questions to Arvind Kejriwal.
Ahead of the Delhi Assembly Elections, the BJP has targeted AAP over its promises of free water and cheaper electricity, among other things.
The fourth set of 'Paanch Sawaal' featured pointed questions regarding AAP's ads that the BJP claimed purportedly compared domestic rates of his tenure to today's industrial rates.
Kejriwal's term in the Indian Revenue Services (IRS) and his candidature from Varanasi during the General Elections also came under the BJP's scanner.
Q.1 Why is Kejriwal brazenly misleading through his advertisements about water rates, when in fact they are exactly same this year as last year? Why deceive Delhi voters so blatantly?
Q2. Why is Kejriwal misleading through his advertisements about electricity rates, by comparing domestic rates of his tenure with industrial rates for now, when in fact on like-to-like domestic-to-domestic-comparison, rates have come down?
Q3. How can Kejriwal be trusted on anything when he even misrepresents his own service designation and the service officers association of IRS had to officially refute his claims?
Q4. Why did Kejriwal perpetuate a law and order crisis while being sitting CM, and misleading on such a petty issue as non-availability of Police Commissioner when he was in fact available?
Q5. Kejriwal promises to be the man of the voters wherever he goes but why does he always run away? How many times has he returned to Varanasi after promising that he will never leave Varanasi electorate?
In its previous three sets of 'Sawaals' the BJP had targeted AAP over myriad topics like its claims over facilities like free Wi-Fi, Moonat Canal work – which the saffron party's leaders claimed already existed.
Issues like midnight raid by AAP leader Somnath Bharti, alleged sexist comments by Kumar Vishwas and Kejriwal's violation of EC directives too have been raised by the BJP.
