Delhi Congress releases chargesheet against BJP, AAP

Delhi Congress on Thursday released a 25-point chargesheet against BJP and AAP, alleging that both the parties were responsible for the present plight of the people of Delhi. "Confusion is being created over regularisation of unauthorised colonies to derive political mileage," said Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee (DPCC) president Arvinder Singh.
Congress leaders said copies of the 25-point chargesheet would be distributed in different parts of Delhi during the party's 'Jan Jagran Abhiyaan'.

They said several schemes like pension, ladli and annasri started during the Congress rule have been stopped, and the residents of Delhi were not being given food security cards. "Besides stopping work on new flyovers and elevated roads, projects like mono rail have also been thrown into the waste basket. During the past seven months, nothing has been done for building any new hospital or school," said Singh.

Congress leaders will also meet the Lieutenant Governor tomorrow and submit a copy of the chargesheet seeking appropriate action. The 25 points include the issue of power bills and forceful increase in load capacity. "BJP had promised to make power 30 per cent cheaper for the consumers, and AAP had promised to make power 50 per cent cheaper. Both the promises have proved to be hollow.

"From April 1 to till date, power subsidy has been stopped, and the provision made for power subsidy in the Union Cabinet, to continue with the subsidy given by the Congress Government, will be implemented only from 1 October. Power companies were increasing load capacity on the consumers' households in the guise of improving power distribution. Power has become costly and people were getting power bills four to five times higher tariffs than before," the charge sheet said.

Secondly, the Trans-Yamuna Development Board has played a vital role in the development of 50 per cent of Delhi's population. During the Congress rule, the board was made very strong, but it was now lying dormant. As a result, development in the Trans-Yamuna area has come to a total halt.
