- Amit Shah said Arvind Kejriwal must visit Prayagraj, take a dip in Ganga
- Mr Shah alleged Delhi Jal Board ran at profit before AAP came to power
- Amit Shah was speaking at an election rally in Delhi
Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Friday challenged Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to take a dip in the Yamuna if he believes that the river is clean.
"I challenge Arvind Kejriwal to take a dip in the Yamuna. If he does so, we will believe that the river Yamuna is clean now," Mr Shah said at a public meeting in Delhi.
"My suggestion to Kejriwal is that he should go to Prayagraj and take a dip in the Ganga there to know how rivers are maintained clean. Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath have made efforts to make Ganga clean," Mr Shah said.
The BJP leader alleged that the Delhi Jal Board was running at a profit of Rs 178 crore per anum before Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP came to power but today it is incurring yearly losses to the tune of Rs 800 crore.
"The promises that Arvind Kejriwal had made five years ago are not fulfilled till date. He had promised that 1,000 schools and 50 new colleges will be opened in the national capital. He had promised 15 lakh CCTV cameras in Delhi. We verified that 1.5 lakh CCTV cameras were actually installed out of which 1.25 lakh cameras were installed by the funds given by the central government."
"AAP has been in the government in Delhi for five years. There is competition among governments as to who will deliver electricity, water, gas to every household. But if there is a competition for lying to the public, the Kejriwal government will be at number one," he alleged.
Mr Shah said that before the elections, Mr Kejriwal had stated that he won't take the official bungalow and car provided by the government but he is availing the facilities.
