New Delhi, Feb.19: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Harshvardhan has described members of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) as habitual liars.
“The Aam Aadmi Party, their leaders, including their party chief Arvind Kejriwal, are habitual liars. Their claims are false and a mere eyewash for the public. On the completion of their 30 days in governance, I had published their 30 lies, but they still keep on lying,” claimed Harshvardhan.
Another BJP leader Vijay Goel said he is determined to expose the injustices, anarchism and escapist policies of the AAP that had resulted in Delhi suffering from unstable governance during the 49-day administration of the Kejriwal regime.
“By threatening the so-called leaders, to whom thwe AAP party members refer to as corrupt, they were trying to portray that they will end corruption. They just dramatised blackmailing people with charges of corruption under the cloak of being so-called corruption crusaders, so that they could win people’s support. But during their governance, instead of reduction, there was a rise in corruption in Delhi,” said Goel.
He further accused AAP ministers of indulging in corruption, and questioned why they were not dismissed.
He described the AAP’s Jan Lokpal Bill as an excuse for Kejriwal to run away from responsibility.
The BJP leaders also criticised the Congress party for supporting the AAP to form a government in Delhi.
The AAP was also condemned for targetting BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi on the gas pricing issue.
Kejriwal resigned as chief minister of Delhi on February 14, frustrated by obstacles put in the way of the Jan Lokpal Bill, and immediately proposed fresh assembly elections in Delhi.
This was rejected by Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung, who recommended President’s rule. THis was accepted by the Union cabinet, and approved by President Pranab Mukherjee.
The Jan Lokpal Bill would have set up an ombudsman with the power to investigate politicians and civil servants. Kejriwal had wanted it to be passed in the Delhi Assembly,but the Congress and the BJP thwarted him, arguing that it must be approved by the central government first. (ANI)
