Delhi govt misleading people on CCTV, GPS in buses, says Tiwari
New Delhi: Delhi BJP President Manoj Tiwari on Thursday reacted to the Delhi Transport Minister Kailash Gehlot's statement that the tender process for getting CCTV and GPS in buses will take seven to eight months before it is completed. Tiwari said that the Delhi government is unnecessarily complicating the tender process, resulting in a long time for the project to be completed. "This raises questions on the Arvind Kejriwal-led government," he said.
The North-East Delhi MP went on to speculate the Delhi government's motives and said that it is soon going to be five years of an AAP government in Delhi and they have not been able to fulfill the promise of CCTVs and GPS in buses, which was part of their election manifesto.
Further speculating, Tiwari claimed that the tender process has been delayed because of the upcoming Assembly polls. He claimed that given Gehlot's estimates for the tender process to be finished, the Model Code of Conduct will begin for the Assembly polls in Delhi, after which the government will not be able to work. "This means that the Delhi government is now looking for excuses to not fulfill their promises," he said.
However, leveraging this moment, the Delhi BJP chief said that Delhiites will definitely see the motives of the AAP-led government and vote for a BJP government in Delhi next year.
Tiwari meets Ramesh Pokhriyal

Tiwari said this will be a significant step towards improving education standards in these areas.
The Delhi BJP chief went on to say that land for building the Kendriya Vidyalaya schools in these areas has already been allotted and that he hopes the construction work is completed soon so that the schools can start helping children in the area as soon as possible.
