The BJP on Sunday questioned Arvind Kejriwal’s promise of free electricity to people in Uttarakhand if the AAP is voted to power, saying he was “lying” and had failed to deliver on his words after becoming the chief minister of Delhi. “You have lied to the people of Delhi and now you are lying to the people of Uttarakhand.
“If you are giving free electricity to the people of Delhi, what is the money being taken from people in the name of surcharge, energy charge and fix charge,” BJP’s national chief spokesperson Anil Baluni asked in a video released after the Delhi chief minister’s announcement in Dehradun.
Alleging that Kejriwal had failed to keep his promises of free water, mohalla clinics and upgrading government schools in Delhi, Baluni said he had thought the Delhi chief minister will tell the truth in ‘Devbhoomi’ and “atone for his sins, but here too he lied”.
“It is Devbhoomi ( land of gods). It does not accept people who lie. You have no scope for doing politics in Uttarakhand.
“You had promised free drinking water to the people of Delhi. But residents of the national capital are forced to drink water from tankers.
