Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday claimed that BJP and Congress workers were disrupting electricity and water supply in the national capital to tarnish the AAP government's image ahead of April 23 civic polls.
The Delhi Chief Minister said the people would be responsible for dengue and chikungunya if they vote the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to power as it "could not clean Delhi or eradicate the vector-borne diseases in ten years".
Referring to the reports of theft of oil from transformers, Kejriwal said: "BJP and Congress workers are stealing oil from the transformers... At places, they take away pipe valves to disrupt water supply... in Sangam Vihar they threw cement bags into the sewers to choke them...."
Kejriwal said power and water troubles are likely to continue till Sunday, the day when polling will be held for the three municipal corporations in Delhi.
On Tuesday, private power distribution company BSES alleged that oil was stolen from at least 70 of its transformers, causing power outage in different parts of the capital.
Promising to clean up Delhi in one year and end the menace of dengue and chikungunya within three years if voted to power, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convenor urged the people not to opt for the BJP or waste their vote on the Congress.
"The BJP could not clean Delhi or eradicate dengue in ten years... vote carefully else you will be responsible if your child suffers from dengue or chickungunya in the near future... our hospitals would treat them but why should children suffer in the first place," Kejriwal said.
"In the entire country, the Congress has vanished so don't waste your vote on them. Besides, for the past ten years, the BJP has been ruling Delhi's municipal corporations but failed to deliver... the BJP could not clean Delhi, nor end the spectres of mosquitoes, dengue and chikungunya," the Delhi Chief Minister said.
