It is exactly like Shakespearean “Much ado about nothing”, a big fuss over a trifle that Arvind Kejriwal, Aam Aadmi Party leader and Chief Minister tried to create in Delhi in February 2015 when he swept Assembly elections. A year later in February 2016, both Arvind Kejriwal and Aadm Aadmi Party stand fully exposed for the poor report card of one year’s performance.
At best, the first year of Aam Aadmi Party Government in Delhi can be described as “a year of deceit, lies, falsehood and treachery”. Aam Aadmi Party has completed one year and it’s time for an introspection and scrutiny of their performance ne non-performance.
The Aam Aadmi Party government upon coming to power had promised to install 15 lakh CCTV cameras in Delhi. It is one year now when this promise was made and the people of national capital are still waiting for the first camera to be installed. After coming to power, the AAP government had announced that it would take a year to implement it.
During travel in Metro, we were all witness to glow signs that promised that Delhi would become first fully Wi-Fi enabled city in India. Going by the slow pace of work, it seems certain that Delhi is likely to miss the one-year deadline too.
Strikes continue in Delhi Municipal Corporation and the recent strike was fourth in a row. Sometime there is inability to pay salary bills for months while sometime it is mismanagement that triggers strikes. The blame game goes on unchecked by Aam Aadmi Party to blame ruling party at Centre for fomenting trouble. Whatever be the reason, people voted you for delivery and performance and not for finding excuses.
When it comes to providing employment to youth, the government does not seem to have made any concrete plans to fulfil 55,000 vacancies in government departments immediately as promised when you sought votes. By far no advertisement has appeared anywhere asking youth to apply for these posts.
One would like to question you about your promises to bring out legislation on Swaraj Bill and transformation of Delhi into a solar city. Ironically a state like Punjab had silently ushered in a solar revolution making Punjab the solar state of the country. We would also like to know the progress on building of 500 new schools, 20 new colleges and regularization of fees of private schools.
So Mr Kejriwal, as an ordinary resident of Delhi, I would like to know what the Delhi CM has actually been doing for the entire year. Perhaps only indulging in blame game to wither away the time!
