AAP substituted governance with publicity and tamasha

Jalandhar: Senior leader and Punjab party affairs in-charge Prabhat Jha on Tuesday launched a scathing attack on Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) National Convener Arvind Kejriwal and said that AAP has substituted governance with publicity, tamasha and blame-game.

Jha said that Kejriwal was befooling the people of Punjab while he was yet to fulfill the promises he had made to the people of Delhi. “Actions speak louder than words. But, Kejriwal words are loud, his actions silent,” he said, adding, that how could voters believe his promises in Punjab.

Addressing a press conference, Prabhat Jha said that AAP was al set to complete two years in power in Delhi on February 14. “In its manifesto, AAP pledged regularisation of all the unauthorised colonies and handing over ownership certificates to everyone within a year. Now, two years have passed and not a single person got the ownership certificates,” he said.

Jha said that Kejriwal could make hollow promises, try to cheat the people of Punjab but they won’t fall in his trap. He also cornered Kejriwal on assured skilled job training to over 1 lakh people. “Two years have passed and not even single person was benefitted. The promise of WiFi was also yet to be fulfilled,” he added.

The BJP leader also said that Kejriwal was vocal about women safety and Delhi and promised to install as many as 15 lakh CCTV cameras. “In the first year, only 200 cameras were installed while the project was hanging fire,” he pointed out.

On the tall promise of eight lakh new jobs in five years, Jha said that Kejriwal failed to deliver. Beside this, Kejriwal also assured 500 new schools and 20 new colleges but nothing was done.

Continuing his tirade, Jha said that AAP has prominently mentioned in the manifesto that they would bring Swaraj Act, which would decentralise and delegate financial and administrative powers to the mohalla sabhas. “A Bill was made during the 49-day government in 2014. But, ever after two years of power in his second stint, non-passage of this legislation in the assembly was mystifying,” he added.

Jha took a dig at Kejriwal and said that he did not believe in decentralisation rather wanted control of Delhi in his own hands. The BJP leader also cornered Kejriwal on bringing changes in Lokpal Bill, which was the foundation of AAP in Delhi as it gained votes on it.
