Inaugurating civic amenities in three areas of the capital on Sunday, the AAP government in Delhi set its political agenda for the upcoming civic polls. Addressing a gathering at Uttam Nagar, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal accused the civic bodies of corruption and said councillors were pocketing funds. “Before the polls, BJP and Congress councillors used to roam around on cycles and scooters. Now, each councillor has five bungalows and five cars each… Once we win in MCD, in one year, we will make Delhi so spick and span that you will compare it with London,” he said.

Watch what else is making news

Kejriwal added that the promises made by his party during the Assembly polls — such as electricity and water subsidy scheme — have been fulfilled. He also hit out at the BJP and the Congress and said no state government had carried out the amount of work done by his government in any other part of the country. Attacking the Congress on grounds of alleged corruption, Kejriwal said the former Congress government in Delhi was hand-in-glove with power distribution companies.

“Remember Sheila Dikshit’s time. In those days, electricity rates used to increase every year. In two years (of our rule), we did not let the rates increase. If we could decrease power rates, why didn’t the BJP and the Congress do the same?” he said. He also trained his guns on the BJP and said, “The BJP has ruled Madhya Pradesh for the last 10 years and Chhattisgarh for the last 15 years. The amount of work we have done in two years, they could not have done in 10 or 15 years.”

Apart from the potable tap water project at Malviya Nagar, the government inaugurated a project for laying a sewerage system in Uttam Nagar and Vikaspuri, and a project for laying a trunk sewer line in Patparganj.

                  I totally agree :lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;AAP has not able to perform 100% in Delhi because of the hurdles put by the central Govt every now and then. LG not clearing important files and Central govt is returning almost every bill which is ped by Delhi govt. Despite all this in Delhi AAP did exceptional work to give water free, electricity at half price, construct 21 new Govt Schools , remodify existing Govt schools (8000 new cl rooms equivalent to 100 schools), 12 new colleges, world cl skill centre, Constuct new Govt. Hospitals, renovate and add beds and new facilities in existing Govt. hospitals, construct 110 Mohalla clinics, 21 polyclinics, free treatment and medicines, free diagnostic services in Govt Hospitals including Ultasound, Sonography, CT scan, MRI scam etc, Health cards for poor, Radiology tests free for everyone even in private hospitals. over 270 night and rain shelters with free food, Skill centres in 10 rain shelters, Aam Aadmi canteen, laying new pipelines (water supply given to 310 colonies), developed more than 10000 homes of economically weaker sections, laying new sewage lines, construction of 5500 public toilets, Proper lighting for delhi roads, Vacuum cleaning of Delhi roads and air purifiers near bus stations to curb pollution, New water treatment plants, elevated corridors and flyovers on roads for signal free travel, 5 flyovers finished already at crores of rupees less that budget, flood water harvesting, GPS enabled trucks, medicine wending machines, 16000 new jobs in job fares conducted by government, direct pure drinking water from DJB pipes in Malviya Nagar. These are all major achievements of AAP in just 2 years.
