New Delhi, May 25: Amid the reports of a shortage of water in Lutyens Delhi, the BJP has questioned Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on his staying away from the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) meetings in the past and asked whether he will attend the meeting on Wednesday.
The BJP also said the chief minister has skipped the last four meetings of the Council.
The saffron party claimed that Kejriwal skipped the meetings as he had nothing to show in terms of delivery.
Quoting NDMC member Kuljeet Singh Chahal, in-charge of BJP’s national information and technology department Amit Malviya tweeted, “Arvind Kejriwal has skipped the last four meetings of the NDMC Council because he has nothing to show in terms of delivery. Delhi Govt has failed to provide even clean drinking water. This is Delhi model of Kejriwal? Will “Delhi ke Malik (owner) attend today’s meeting or go in hiding, again?.”
On Tuesday, Chahal wrote a letter to Kejriwal about his regular absence from the Council meetings. “Kejriwal has not attended the several Council meetings dated March 31, 2021, January 7, 2022, February 23, 2022 and March 30, 2022 in which 26 items were approved in the interest of public in the absence of chief minister like ‘Har Ghar Jal Yojna’, ‘Swachata-Chatravriti’, ‘Redevelopment of Hanuman Vatika’,” Chahal said.
Chahal also wrote that the absence of Kejriwal also showed that he was boycotting these schemes. “He is always talking about the Delhi model but his mindset is zero in the name of development in the NDMC area,” Chahal said.
Chahal, also Delhi BJP general secretary, urged the chief minister to attend the NDMC Council meetings in the interest, benefit and welfare of area residents, who voted and elected him as MLA.
Chahal asked Kejriwal about the “fears behind not attending the NDMC Council meeting”.
