Will make Delhi like London, if AAP comes to power in MCD, says Arvind Kejriwal

If Aam Aadmi Party comes to power in the MCD, we will make Delhi comparable to London, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Sunday.

Speaking to a gather in West Delhi's Uttam Nagar, the AAP chief said BJP-ruled municipal bodies have not been able to keep Delhi clean.

"Last time you gave us 67 seats," he said,"but this time don't even leave the 3 seats."

"If we win MCD once, we will change Delhi so much in one year that you will compare Delhi to London,” he said.

The CM said that people have the misconception that Delhi is not clean due to AAP government’s failure, according to a report in Hindustan Times.

“Wherever I go, people have this misconception that garbage is not being picked up and there is no cleaning because of Delhi government. It is not our but MCD’s responsibility,” Kejriwal said.

Kejriwal said the BJP and Congress have been leading the municipal bodies for the last 20 years without doing anything.

“They have looted MCD. MCD collects so much money from house tax, hoarding, parking. Last year, Delhi government gave them Rs 2,800 crore. But where is all this money? Why is Delhi not being cleaned? They make the same road thrice on paper and eat all the money,” he alleged.

The former Congress government in Delhi was hand-in-glove with power distribution companies, he said.

 “Remember Sheila Dikshit’s time. In those days, electricity rates used to increase every year. In two years (of our rule), we did not let the rates increase. If we could decrease power rates, why didn’t the BJP and the Congress do the same?” he said.


He also trained his guns on the BJP and said, “The BJP has ruled Madhya Pradesh for the last 10 years and Chhattisgarh for the last 15 years. The amount of work we have done in two years, they could not have done in 10 or 15 years.”
