As the blame game intensifies among politicians ahead of Delhi Assembly election scheduled for Feb. 7, today Congress party released a document detailing Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal‘s lies that he has been telling during the past couple of years.
Titled “49 Dino Ki Ultee Chall, Dilli Hui Behal: U Turn Kejriwal,” the document containing 18 chapters chronicles Kejriwal’s political career beginning with his participation in the Anna Hazare-led anti-corruption campaign in India.
Kejriwal went on the become the Chief Minister of Delhi with support from Congress. But he could stay in the post just for 49 days – from December 28, 2013 to February 14, 2014.

Kejriwal had entered politics in 2012 after leaving social activist Anna Hazare in the lurch. Hazare was leading a massive national civil society campaign against political and bureaucratic corruption in India.
Kejriwal and Kiran Bedi were Hazare’s main supporters in the campaign. But both were cunningly using Hazare and his campaign to gain popularity and launch their political careers.
Ms. Bedi has also joined Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) a couple of days ago. Although Kejriwal and Bedi were supporting each other in Hazare’s movement, now they are opposing each other in Delhi politics.

Currently, AAP, BJP, and Congress are the three main parties in fray for the forthcoming Delhi election.
A few weeks ago, Congress had released a similar booklet to highlight the unfulfilled promises and lies of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in India.
Titled “chhe mahine paar, U-turn sarkar” (six months spent by a U-turn government), the booklet counts BJP’s false promises made during the Lok Sabha elections. It says that the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led BJP government has failed on almost every step.
