New Delhi: Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Monday lashed out at outgoing Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal saying the public neither got the buses not CCTVs that Kejriwal promised to provide.
“Kejriwal said that 1.5 million CCTV cameras will be installed. The public of Delhi kept searching for CCTVs. There were talks of buying 5,000 buses. The Kejriwal government reduced 1,100 buses from what it was. He had also promised to make temporary workers permanent, but no one became a permanent worker,” said Shah.
Shah was addressing an election rally in Delhi’s Rithala Assembly constituency in favour of BJP candidate Vijay Chaudhary.
दंगे करवाएं केजरीवाल, शाहीन बाग के साथ खड़े होने की बाते करें केजरीवाल तो वहां बैठे लोग हमसे ज्यादा अरविंद केजरीवाल की ही बात मानेंगे।
श्रीमान केजरीवाल जी आप में हिम्मत है तो जाकर शाहीन बाग में धरने पर बैठें फिर दिल्ली की जनता आपको अपना फैसला सुनायेगी। pic.twitter.com/0tvyLdINHo

Delhi will vote on February 8 to elect representatives for its 70-member Assembly and counting of votes will be held on February 11.
Coming out heavily on Kejriwal, the Union Home Minister said, “Before the elections, Kejriwal had said that he would not take the government bungalow and vehicle if he comes to power, but after taking the oath, he took the government vehicle and bungalow.”
The Rithala Assembly constituency is being represented by AAP MLA Mohinder Goyal who won the seat with 93,470 votes in the 2015 state polls.
The ruling party has again shown faith in him while the Bharatiya Janata Party has fielded Chaudhary — last time the saffron party was represented by Kulwant Rana.
The Congress has fielded Pradeep Kumar Pandey.
