      Kejriwal has done a great job in Delhi. Delhi has achieved maximum GDP among the Indian States. Delhi is the only state where govt Schools are having better result than private schools. Common man has been given the Medical facility in Govt Hospitals equivalent to private hospitals. Dirt and garbage is the responsibility of BJP governed MCD, which is almost non-functional. Even around 20,000 ghost employees were found in the MCD. MCD is the most corrupt department in India.

        The hedonist CM without a portfolio allicated pirtfoliis. Rofl. Kanjarwaal isbthe only CM in India to have no portfolios. He is busy watching films,giving reviews spending tine on twitter. We had never seen such an incompetent CM in our city. Slum proliferation,illegal encroachment,dilapidated roads point to kanjarwal's incompetence.
