After getting a drubbing in the recent MCD election that BJP won, Delhi chief minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal has gone bonkers.

Kejriwal admitted today that his party has committed mistakes, which – in fact, have ruined Delhi. But he did not fix accountability for the blunders that have caused immense sufferings for the people of Delhi.

Kejriwal and his cabal have brought the city on the brink of disaster where it has become extremely difficult for people to even survive.

Today Delhi is the most polluted and perhaps the dirtiest city in the world. But Kejriwal’s Delhi government has not made any attempt to get the city cleaned.

Plus, the people do not get drinking water in homes and electricity supply is erratic. Parking of vehicles is a painful irritant in the entire city. But Kejriwal has no interest in Delhi mainly because he himself and his ministers are either illiterate or incompetent.

Similarly, the education standard in Delhi is in a deplorable state. But Kejriwal and others in his government have been telling blatant lies about the quality of school education which has actually gone from bad to worse.

Although Kejriwal had won the assembly election in 2015 with the promise to weed out corruption from Delhi, the truth is that corruption is so rampant in almost every street of Delhi that Kejriwal and Delhi government have failed to check it.

Worse, Kejriwal’s own government is facing serious corruption charges. Last year, the lieutenant governor Najeeb Jung had set up an expert committee – called the Shunglu Committee – to examine over 400 files for financial and administrative irregularities committed by Kejriwal’s government.

While the Shunglu Committee had submitted its report in November last year, it is stated that the report has found serious cases of fraud, cheating, and misappropriation of funds in Kejriwal’s Delhi government.

As people of Delhi are extremely distressed under Kejriwal’s misrule, he should have resigned from his post to alleviate people’s sufferings. But he has decided to cling to his chair, as greed has overpowered his ability to think.

He concluded his today’s message by saying: “The only thing constant is change.” But the AAP leader failed to mention that people of Delhi also want a change and want Kejriwal to go. Will he?
