Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday lashed out at the BJP-led Haryana government over "poor" education and health services and urged the people to help the AAP come to power in the state.
Addressing a public meeting in Chanaut village near here, Kejriwal advised his Haryana counterpart Manohar Lal Khattar to see for himself the bad condition of government schools and hospitals in the state.
The AAP national convenor said, "People from Haryana asked me to see the condition of the government schools. Parents told me that the authorities carried out repairs at the last moment after learning that I would be visiting."

"Even then the condition is poor. If the BJP government cannot maintain schools and hospitals, it should at least see how we have transformed the educational and health institutions in Delhi," he said.
The AAP leader appealed to the people in Haryana to vote for the AAP in the state Assembly polls next year.
"We will improve things in a month," he said.
"If we can change the shape of schools and hospitals of Delhi in three years, then why is the Khattar government not able to do so even after four years?" Kejriwal asked.
He said he visited several government schools and hospitals of Haryana in the last few weeks and claimed that Khattar did not visit them in four years.
Kejriwal has visited Haryana several times this year.
Earlier this month, he visited a few government schools in Jhajjar district's Beri town and addressed a public gathering there. He also visited Bhiwani a few days ago.
"We visited two schools of Chanaut village. The condition of the school there is really bad. The buildings were in a dilapidated state," he said.
Kejriwal, who was accompanied by his deputy Manish Sisodia, also visited Fatehabad.
Kejriwal, who hails from Siwani Mandi near here, said the AAP is getting huge support from the people in Haryana and it can provide a viable alternative to parties like BJP, Congress and INLD.
