BJP to torch symbolic bonfire of Kejriwal govt's 'failures and unfulfilled promises'
New Delhi: The BJP hit back at the ruling Aam Aadmi Party in Delhi over its demand for full statehood to the city, on Tuesday, with Delhi BJP minister saying he will lit a symbolic bonfire of "unfulfilled promises and failures" of the Kejriwal government.
Minister slammed Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal over the issue of full statehood, saying there was "no possibility of statehood owing to antics and drama of Kejriwal."
Earlier Tuesday, Kejriwal charged BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi of "betraying" people on the issue of full statehood to Delhi. He said he and other senior party leaders will burn the BJP manifesto which promised full statehood to Delhi, at AAP office on Wednesday.
Former Delhi BJP president, said, "I will hold Holika Dahan (ritual bonfire before Holi) at Jantar Mantar, and torch a tower made of newspaper advertisements of Kejriwal government. Placards listing unfulfilled promises of Arvind Kejriwal will also be torched."
The minister said Kejriwal government gave so many advertisements on inaugural of development works, adding "What was this government doing for last four years that they have to give newspaper advertisements on inauguration of sewer lines and roads in unauthorised colonies."
