AAP presents Manoj Tiwari's report card
NEW DELHI: The Aam Aadmi Party on Wednesday released a report card of Delhi BJP MP from Delhi Manoj Tiwari and accused him of not fulfilling his promises to the city. Releasing the report card, AAP leader Gopal Rai said Tiwari had not asked a single question on statehood, sealing or metro fare hike in the Parliament during his term between 2014 and 2019.
"The BJP had promised full statehood to Delhi in its manifesto of 2014 Lok Sabha polls, but the Tiwari had not asked a single question on that.
Tiwari, who is also a member of a standing committee on transport, has not raised any questions on the fare hike in Delhi Metro," Rai said.
Rai also said the villages adopted by Tiwari under the 'Sansad Adarsh Gram Yojana' are in a bad condition without proper roads, lack of cleanliness, health and education facilities. The AAP leader also said that while the BJP had promised that after winning the MCD elections, it will ensure that the Center will give money to the MCD, but nothing happened.
"Tiwari did not speak about the permanent position for MCD workers and school teachers teaching in Delhi government schools."
The AAP also said that under the Members of Parliament Local Area Development Scheme (MPLAD), a total of Rs 11.48 crore remained unspent with the Delhi MPs and highest amount with was with Manoj Tiwari, MP from North East Delhi. "Tiwari had an unspent balance of Rs 3.16 crore," Rai said. The AAP also said that Tiwari only raised 258 questions in the House.
Responding to the claims Manoj Tiwari has termed Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal as the most corrupt Chief Minister and said that there are 9 MLAs of his party under his Lok Sabha Constituency but none of them has done anything. The MLAs get 10 crore rupees annually but they are not spending a single paisa from the fund. "If CM Kejriwal is an honest person then he should submit the Report Card of his MLAs," he said.
