BJP slams Kejriwal for not arranging civil defence volunteers

New Delhi, Nov 16 (IANS) The BJP on Wednesday attacked Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for not providing civil defence volunteers to manage the crowds outside bank branches and ATM kiosks as promised by him three days ago.

“Kejriwal now stands exposed before the people as the man who plays politics on every issue, creates controversies and has no solution for any problem,” Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) unit chief Satish Upadhyay told reporters.

Earlier on Sunday, Kejriwal said that in the next three-four days the Delhi government would arrange civil defence volunteers outside the bank branches and ATM kiosks in the city.

“Three days ago Kejriwal had said that soon the Delhi government will post civil defence volunteers to manage queues and set up centres to help people fill forms, apart from offering them water and tea,” the BJP leader said.

“Three days have gone but citizens of Delhi continue to await posting of civil defence volunteers and the assistance promised to them,” he added.

Criticising the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader for wasting taxpayers’ money by calling special session of the Delhi assembly, Upadhyay said, “As always Kejriwal wasted exchequer’s money on making weird allegations in yesterday’s (Tuesday) special session of the Vidhan Sabha.”

During the special session of the Delhi assembly on Tuesday, Kejriwal accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of having received bribes when he was the Gujarat Chief Minister and sought a judicial probe into his claim. The Delhi assembly also sought a reversal of the demonetisation drive.

The Delhi BJP leader wondered why the Delhi government or the AAP did not offer any concrete suggestion to bail out the people.
