The Aam Aadmi Party Thursday came out with a "report card" on the work of Chandni Chowk MP Harsh Vardhan and slammed the senior BJP leader over several issues including on statehood, sealing drive and the problem of pollution in the city.
Rai also said the Union environment minister has been blaming the AAP for not being able to tackle the problem of pollution in Delhi. "But the fact remains that the steps taken by us (Delhi government) cannot be compared with any other state. We launched odd-even scheme and a comprehensive plan to tackle pollution," Rai said.
The BJP MP responded to the charges through a series of tweets.
He said it was because of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal that Delhi could not be granted full statehood because he "insulted" India by protesting ahead of the Republic Day when many foreign dignitaries were in the country.
He also accused Kejriwal of stalling the metro phase-4 project. "I have done historic work in Chandni Chowk in the last four years," Harsh Vardhan said.
"In the environment sector, Modi got Champions of the Earth award. We went out of the way to help the Delhi government but what all they did was politics," he alleged.
