New Delhi: Union Home Minister and BJP’s star campaigner Amit Shah on Wednesday accused Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal of causing air pollution in the national capital, saying if anyone is responsible for the air pollution in the national capital, it is the inactivity of the Delhi government.
He also went on to say that the AAP had made a fake promise to purify the air of Delhi. He said this while addressing an election rally in Najafgarh on the outskirt of the national capital ahead of Delhi Assembly Election 2020.
“They (AAP) had said that they’ll purify the air of Delhi. They did drama, printed advertisements, but if anyone is responsible for the level of pollution in Delhi today, then it’s the inactivity of Kejriwal govt. Delhi’s air has poison mixed in it,” Shah said in the rally.
Alleging that the AAP could not keep its promise of cleaning the water of river Yamuna, Shah challenged Kejriwal to take off his shirt and take a dip in the river to know the level of pollution.
“They (AAP) had said that they will clean the water of river Yamuna. Kejriwal ji, today I challenge you to take off your shirt and take a dip in river Yamuna. You will realise the condition of the water of river Yamuna,” he further said.
Ahead of the Delhi Assembly Election 2020, Union Home Minister Amit Shah and BJP president JP Nadda are holding three rallies each in the national capital today.
On the other hand, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is also holding roadshows at Rajinder Nagar, Hari Nagar, Shakur Basti and Moti Nagar today.
According to the announcement from the EC, the Assembly elections in Delhi will be held February 8 and the counting of votes will take place February 11.
