- Massive power outages are result of poor power management, lack of accountability : Goel
- Corrupt and inefficient Congress government in Delhi is perfect reflection of UPA govt.
New Delhi, May 22.-The Delhi BJP will launch a 'Jail Bharo' agitation from 27 May to highlight the failure of Congress government on issues of corruption and inflation.
The agitation is a part of the nationwide movement launched by BJP across the nation from 27 May to June 2.
Thousands of BJP workers will march to Prime Minister’s residence to demand the resignation of PM and Delhi CM on May 27 in Delhi.
The march will be led by National BJP President Shri Rajnath Singh. Delhi BJP President Shri Vijay Goel and senior party leaders including Shri Ananth Kumar, Shri Prakash Javadekar will participate in the agitation which will start from Delhi BJP’s office.
"Delhi is governed by both Centre and the state. So the failures of both Congress led UPA and Sheila Dikshit led Congress government are two sides of the same coin. So we are demanding CM's resignation along with PM's resignation," said Delhi BJP President Shri Vijay Goel.
Shri Goel announced that with the grave crisis of governance crippling Capital of the country, the state BJP will press for resignation of the Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit for leading a corrupt and inefficient government along with resignation of the Prime Minister as a part of nationwide agitation starting from 27 May.
“The corrupt, inefficient and anti-people Congress government in Delhi is a perfect reflection of the Congress led UPA government at the Centre so we believe that along with the PM, the Delhi CM should also go,” said Shri Goel.
“The departments headed by the CM have been neck deep in corruption as exposed by the CAG reports. Her dubious role in CWG scam has been proved beyond doubt by the Shunglu Committee report. And on top of it she is proving to be an insensitive Chief Minister whose off the cuff remarks about problems of common people have hurt the sensibilities of people at large,” said Shri Goel.
Meanwhile, the Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party today slammed the Congress government for making Delhi residents suffer from massive power outages disrupting their normal life.
The party believes that had the government planned well in advance to deal with peak summer demand, this crisis could have been avoided. The Party asked the Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit to clarify to the people of Delhi, “Who is accountable for such power outages and what action has been taken by the government to punish the guilty who are making Delhi residents suffer.”
“It is like a double whammy for Delhi citizens, they are made to suffer hike in power tariffs and then they are made to suffer from unscheduled power cuts for long hours,” said Delhi BJP President Shri Vijay Goel.
“The power outages have happened in almost every locality in the Capital over the last few days but there is no one to listen to the complaints. The power crisis is affecting water availability in homes, shops and establishments. These long unscheduled power cuts are also affecting the business and industrial activities at all levels,” he added.
“The government knew well in advance that during summers, the demand for power would increase. Why didn’t it plan to ensure regular power supply? This shows lack of better planning and foresight by the government,” said Shri Goel.
“The worst part is that while the Chief Minister appears mostly very keen to agree to power tariff hike proposals of private power distribution companies, she has not even once cared to ask them Why Delhi’ites are made to suffer from long power cuts. In fact she doesn’t seem to be ready to even recognise that Delhi citizens are suffering from blackouts and power cuts,” he added.
