While addressing a poll rally in the national capital, the Defence Minister stated that Kejriwal has broken many promises which he had made earlier.
“Kejriwal had promised free Wi-Fi, are you getting free Wi-Fi? He had said that 5000 DTC buses would be given, even if half of them had been given, people would have been happy,” he added.
Talking about many other such issues which the national capital is facing, Rajnath Singh said not a single promise has been fulfilled by the chief minister.
“Whether it is a pollution problem or Delhi Metro’s Phase-4 and Mohalla clinic, Kejriwal has not fulfilled what he has promised. If that is the case, then what he has done for the welfare of the people of Delhi? But, the BJP has done whatever it had promised,” he added.
Defence Minister Rajnath Singh and BJP president JP Nadda are holding a number of rallies in the national capital in different assembly constituencies as part of the campaigns for the upcoming Delhi Assembly Election 2020.
On the other hand, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is also holding roadshows at Karawal Nagar, Gokalpur, Mehrauli, Chhatarpur and Delhi Cantt.
The Assembly elections in Delhi will be held on February 8 and the counting of votes will take place on February 11.
