Kejriwal is only trying to deceive people, says Manoj Tiwari on AAP’s free metro ride announcement


Hours after Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal announced free ride for women in Delhi metro, DTC and cluster buses, BJP state unit chief Manoj Tiwari on Monday questioned the timing of the scheme and called it as another attempt to mislead people.

Addressing a press conference in New Delhi, he said, “Delhi’s ‘ghoshnamantri’ (announcement minister) has made new announcements. He has been labelled as ‘nakampanthi’. They deceived people with 70 promises. It has been 52 months of AAP government and they have only eight months left. Suddenly, they thought of announcing new schemes otherwise they would lose their ground in Delhi.”

“We are not opposing the idea but something that couldn’t even be started in 52 months, how can it be done in 5-6 months? Arvind Kejriwal is only trying to deceive people,” he added.

This announcement comes days after the ruling Aam Adami Party (AAP) in Delhi suffered a massive defeat and lost all seven Lok Sabha seats in the national capital in the general elections. The party contested 40 seats across nine states and Union Territories and could win only one seat-Sangrur in Punjab.

Tiwari alleged that the scheme is an attempt to buy votes. “This is only a beginning, there would be many announcements in the coming time. They had said that they will win 7 Lok Sabha seats but later he said that this was not their election. They are trying to buy votes,” he said.

“For 1.5 crore women in Delhi, there are only 3,800 buses. He had promised to deploy Marshals for the safety of women and panic buttons in buses, it seems he himself is now panicking. He cannot understand what new tactic to use to mislead people of Delhi,” the BJP leader said.

Tiwari, who won the parliamentary seat of North East Delhi, said that BJP will bring a scheme in which no one has to pay for tickets in buses if voted to power in the national capital.
