New Delhi: The State BJP President Adesh Gupta has appealed to people of Punjab to be careful and cautious about the promises that Arvind Kejriwal is making and creating all kind of confusion on various counts. He is in power in Delhi for past seven years and Delhiites know what he has done for women and youngsters and others but it’s important people of Punjab should also know the reality.
At a news conference here today, he said Kejriwal is promising Rs 1000 each pension to women in Punjab but back in Delhi not a single woman has been given this amount and , on the contrary women, widows and senior citizens pension has stopped and they are obviously feeling insecure. He talked about deploying woman marshal in DTC buses but all that is missing. Out of 6600 buses only 3700 are left now. The state media head Shri Naveen Kumar Jindal and BJP leader Shri Shivam Chabara were with him at the dais.
Gupta said Kejriwal has been screaming in poll bound states that unemployed youths would be given Rs 5000 unemployment allowance each but not revealing what he did in this context in past seven years. Although he told a lie that 10 lac youths were given employment the fact came out through a RTI that this seven year period saw only 3700 unemployed youths getting jobs here in Delhi.
The Party State President said Kejriwal also lied when he said on contract employees were regularized because the fact is these are 700 employees were already working on compassionate ground. Talking about river Yamuna cleaning all this while the fact remains the central government gave Rs 2481 for the purpose of 18 STP plants and river cleaning but not a single plant has been stalled so far. While 500 new schools were promised, on the contrary 16 of the running ones too were closed and not a single new college came up. To cap it all, employees in 12 state government run colleges haven’t got their salaries for months, he alleged.
He said when youths in Punjab were taking to alcoholism due to liquor mafia there, he talked big about prohibition in that state but here in Delhi is hell bent upon opening liquor shops in clear violation of rules and regulations and even in residential areas or vicinity of religions places and schools. In connivance with liquor mafia number of dry days in Delhi has been reduced from 21 to just three days now so that these extra days give the mafia more quick bucks by selling more liquor. Shri Gupta said in Punjab he has been receiving praise for Mohalla clinics in Delhi but the harsh reality is that wrong treatment by doctors at these clinics caused 17 children to fall sick and three lost their life. He must tell this truth to people in Punjab, he quipped.
