Delhi BJP executive meeting on Sunday slammed Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for allegedly pushing the national capital into a “constitutional crisis” by his “autocratic, anarchic and whimsical attitude”.
In a two-part resolution, adopted by the committee, it hailed Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP National President Amit Shah for their leadership, for enhancing India’s prestige world over and for providing benefits of government schemes to the poorest of poor in the country, a party statement said.
The second part listed alleged “failures and corruptions” of Delhi government, holding the “autocratic, anarchic and whimsical attitude” of Delhi Chief Minister Arivind Kejriwal “responsible” for plunging Delhi into a “constitutional crisis” and bringing the administrative and development work to a “standstill “in the national capital, the statement added.

Addressing the closing session, Union minister Thawar Chand Gehlot asked the workers to use “conducive” media to fight “false” campaign by ruling AAP in Delhi.
“Following a few electoral reverses, media-created a hype against BJP but since Assam victory and growth in vote percentage all over again the political media atmosphere is conducive towards BJP,” he was quoted as saying.
“Delhi BJP workers should make maximum use of this changed media approach to rebut the false campaign of AAP to ensure party’s victory in municipal elections next year,” he said.
In his address, Delhi BJP chief Satish Upadhyay presented a road-map to expose “corrupt maladministration” of Kejriwal government in Delhi.
“With alert, active communication we have to fight out this government,” he said.
In another statement, Upadhayay accused Kejriwal and his “gang” of shaming the democracy by protesting against the arrest of AAP MLA, who is in judicial custody for allegedly molesting women.
He said “Kejriwal began the process of breaking the constitutional federal structure of centre- state relation in January 2014 by trying to hinder Republic Day celebrations and thereafter made number of attempts to push the city administration into a crisis”.
“We always knew that he has no respect for women but we never knew that Arvind Kejriwal can stoop so low that he will stand up to defend his colleague accused of molesting women,” he added.
Upadhayay said before accusing the central government or the police for any excesses, AAP government should realise that Delhi police acted on a complaint of women following direction of a Magistrate court, where they had registered her statement.
“We also wish to ask Chief Minister Kejriwal to tell why did the clash between women and MLA took place? To best of the knowledge the women and others had gone to request for proper water supply during Ramzan,” he added.
Upadhayay further said Kejriwal and his “gang of thugs are trying to divert attention from the main issue of rampant corruption in Delhi and failure to provide proper water and electricity supply to citizen.
“Delhi Jal Board, VAT and Excise department’s have become a den of corruption to extort funds for the ruling party,” he alleged in a statement.
Dinesh Mohaniya, AAP MLA from Sangam Vihar, was arrested yesterday for alleged assault on a group of women in Neb Sarai, and sent to judicial custody.
