The BJP on Tuesday hit out at Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for his protest outside Rail Bhawan, saying the AAP government in the capital was a loss to the nation.
Harsh Vardhan, Leader of Opposition in the Delhi Assembly, said the protest had shown the country in a poor light before the world. “Never before in this country has any elected representative abused the Constitution like this. And to add to the insult of those who gave them power, they cheated them by calling off the dharna on a demand that has not been met by the Centre,” he said.
Harsh Vardhan criticised Kejriwal for letting down the people of the capital.

Delhi BJP chief Vijay Goel said the AAP calling off the protest indicated an understanding between the Congress and the ruling party. “The way this crisis has been resolved shows there was a complete understanding between the Congress and the AAP from the beginning to stage this drama. The two parties are playing petty politics to cheat common citizens.”
Delhi Congress chief Arvinder Singh Lovely, however, welcomed Kejriwal’s decision to call off the protest and said now, the AAP’s prerogative should be to focus on ruling Delhi in the manner they promised. “Now that the AAP’s protest has resulted in two police officers being sent on leave, they should focus on governance. Kejriwal needs to start delivering on the promises he made,” he said.
The Congress said it was time for the AAP to focus on the real needs of the common man. Lovely said that amid the protest by the AAP, a number of people, who were on dharnas over various demands, had been ignored. “A group of teachers has been staging a protest for regularisation outside the Secreteriat for 10 days. Kejriwal should now at least give them five minutes of his time,” he said.

The PIL was filed by advocate M L Sharma.
