As India continues to be an underdeveloped country, the politicians hoodwink the voters and win elections by promising basic amenities such as drinking water, electricity, and cooking gas which are scarce across the country.

While India’s capital New Delhi is already the world’s most polluted capital, now the city is facing acute shortage of electricity and water supply.
Under the leadership of Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee (DPCC) president and former chief minister (CM) Sheila Dikshit, the Delhi unit of Congress is holding protests in Delhi today to highlight the scarcity of basic amenities in the city-state.
Congress – which has been almost decimated after its excruciating defeat in the recent Lok Sabha election – has made it an election issue for the upcoming Delhi election.
Under the hashtag #5_साल_दिल्ली_बेहाल, Congress organized demonstration in all 70 Assembly constituencies of Delhi complaining against the “unfair fixed charges in electricity bills and water shortage in Delhi.”

Today, Delhi has become a virtual hell under chief minister Arvind Kejriwal’s government. While lethal pollution is spreading like a pandemic disease in Delhi, corruption and lawlessness are rampant in every street of Delhi.
Most believe that Delhi has become the crime capital of the world. While Delhi Police is totally corrupt, gangsters operate openly in Delhi. Reports suggest that 220 gunshots were fired on Delhi’s streets over 30 days — between May 17 and June 15. At least 16 people were killed and 22 got injured in the shooting incidents.
