New Delhi, July 13: The BJP on Thursday accused Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal of stopping funds to the civic bodies in the city and said that he is taking revenge from the people for voting for the BJP.
“Kejriwal has threatened the people of the city if they vote for the BJP in the civic polls then they shall feel the burn,” Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Manoj Tiwari told reporters at a press conference here.
“And now he is halting and interrupting the work of the municipal corporations by stopping funds of the civic bodies,” Tiwari alleged.
Tiwari, who also represents the northeast constituency seat of the city in the Look Sabha, then said that he was doing this just to punish the people of the city for voting for the BJP in the civic polls.
“Whenever our councillors go for a meeting with the Chief Minister in his office to make him aware of the problems, he disrespects them instead of meeting them,” he alleged.
Hitting out at the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader, Tiwari said that before the MCD elections Kejriwal had threatened the people of the city to be ready to face the consequences if they voted in favour of the BJP.
The BJP won in the recently concluded MCD elections in the city.
The BJP leader also said that party president Amit Shah will hold a two-day programme in the city on July 14 and 15, during which he will meet party workers.
