The Delhi unit of Congress party held a massive demonstration in the city today (Dec. 2) to protest against the rising prices of all commodities and overall chaos unleashed by Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi and Delhi Chief Minister (CM) Arvind Kejriwal.

As a symbolic gesture, Congress workers wore onion garlands to highlight the exorbitant rise in the price of onions besides other food items. As India is witnessing the worst economic slowdown under Modi government, people are not able to buy even essential household items.

Although such demonstrations do not affect the autocratic Modi government, Congress is targeting the Kejriwal’s Delhi government which is about to complete its 5-year term.

While Kejriwal and his Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) are getting ready for the Delhi election, people are suffering in all corners of Delhi.

Most people believe that in the past 5 years, Kejriwal and AAP have caused such a damage to Delhi that now it will take it almost 50 years to recover from the ruins. As almost all the politicians in Kejriwal’s cabal are naive and inexperienced, they have failed in all areas of governance.

Today, Delhi is among the most polluted and the dirtiest cities of the world, corruption is rampant in every street of Delhi, and the education standards – particularly in Delhi schools – are going from bad to worse.

While Kejriwal is going gaga over the hyped performance of his Mohalla Clinics, people in Delhi complain about the uselessness of such a flawed health care concept.

During the past 5 years, Kejriwal and AAP have only been blaming the Lt. Governor (LG) Anil Baijal for their own failures, saying that Baijal is not allowing Kejriwal to work independently. But Kejriwal himself has also failed miserably.

Now voters of Delhi are feeling cheated by Kejriwal and his party. In an ongoing RMN Poll, a whopping 67% people say they are not satisfied with Kejriwal’s AAP government in Delhi and only 25% are satisfied.
