New Delhi:

The war of words between top leaders ahead of the Delhi Assembly Elections is intensifying with each passing day. On Friday, it was Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s turn to answer the BJP’s allegations on development work done during his tenure. A day after Union Home Minister Amit Shah levelled charges of corruption and the AAP government of deceiving people, the Chief Minister had a curt clap back. Hitting back at the BJP leadership, Kejriwal took to Twitter on Friday and said that people of Delhi have forced the opponents to seek votes on real issue.

 

“I am glad that you were able to spot a ‘few CCTVs’. Sometime back, you had claimed that you couldn’t spot a single camera. Take out some time, you would see schools also. I am extremely happy that the people of Delhi have forced the BJP to seek votes on CCTV, schools and kachchi colonies,” Kejriwal said in a reply to Delhi BJP’s tweet on Amit Shah. In the tweet, Amit Shah had said, “the Aam Aadmi Party government had promised to install 15 lakh CCTVs across Delhi. But only a few were installed, the AAP government is making fool out of people.”

CCTV Jibe, Once More?

This is not the first time that Amit Shah has mocked the AAP government with the CCTV jibe. On January 5, during a rally, Shah had alleged that the Kejriwal government had failed to fulfil the promise of installing the 15 lakh CCTVs across the national capital. “I have been going around with binoculars, looking in vain for the CCTV cameras installed by the AAP government,” Shah said during the event. Delhi’s Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia had hit back and said that Shah was lying.

Manish Sisodia’s Attack

Speaking to the media on January 7, Sisodia shared a video where Shah was seen saying the city was to get 1.5 million CCTV cameras, but were yet to fine one. Sharing another CCTV clip, Sisodia said it was from the door-to-door campaign by Shah in Lajpat Nagar. Shah visited eight houses in a small lane, and there were 16 cameras around it, he added. "Shah went inside a house. Even that had a CCTV over it. To spot CCTV cameras in Delhi, all he needs is to look up," Sisodia had said.

All About 7-Hour Wait

Meanwhile, Aam Aadmi Party national convenor and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday filed his nomination papers for the February 8 Delhi Assembly Elections from New Delhi constituency after a wait of nearly seven hours at the Returning Officer’s office. Kejriwal was scheduled to file his poll papers on Monday but postponed it for today owing to a delay in his roadshow. However, the AAP chief had to wait for seven hours as there were several other candidates at the Returning Officer’s office to file their nominations.
