As Arvind Kejriwal and his team of ministers lack administrative skills, they have completely failed to manage the government affairs.

As Delhi’s chief minister Arvind Kejriwal is a highly incompetent and morally corrupt man, he has failed to do anything good for the people of Delhi.

During the past about one year of Kejriwal’s rule in Delhi, the living conditions for the people in the capital of India have gone from bad to worse.

Today, Delhi is perhaps the dirtiest city in the world. The electricity supply in residential areas is painfully erratic and the water bills are so high that Kejriwal and his gang of ministers seem to have taken the place of water mafia that operated in Delhi.

Kejriwal’s government through Delhi Jal Board is conniving with the corrupt managing committees of the Delhi (Dwarka) housing societies to extort money from residents in the form of hugely inflated water consumption charges, though Kejriwal promised free water for the residents.

The increasing number of cars is another major irritant in Delhi. Even the Delhi High Court has ruled that only one car per flat will be allowed in housing society parking lots.

But Kejriwal’s government has failed to check the menace and playing hand in glove with the corrupt managing committees of the housing societies that allow residents to park multiple vehicles inside the society premises under some secret deals with the erring residents.

If that was not enough, now Kejriwal is hell-bent to give a slow death to Delhiites. How? The pollution levels in Delhi are so dangerous that they will put even the hydrogen bomb of North Korea to shame.

Last month, Kejriwal introduced an odd-even rule that allowed the odd and even numbered cars to ply on alternate days on city roads. The rule that was supposed to run for 15 days was imposed from the beginning of 2016.

The 15-day period elapsed, but the pollution levels in Delhi are still standing agape with monstrous cruelty and all this hoopla proved to be another shameless gimmick of Kejriwal.

But why shameless? Because Kejriwal is not serious about anything and as said before he is at least a morally – if not mentally – corrupt man.

As Kejriwal and his team of ministers lack administrative skills, they have completely failed to manage the government affairs. As a result, there have been a series of protests against the Delhi government.

Now, over one hundred thousand municipal workers in Delhi are on an indefinite strike since January 27, because the Delhi government could not pay their wages. Consequently, the filth levels in Delhi have gone from bad to worse.

With his repeated failures to run the government, Kejriwal has proved to be the worst enemy of Delhiites. If he is allowed to continue as the chief minister of Delhi for a few more years, Delhi will be totally ruined and go back to the Stone Age.

As the Indian political system allows even the most incompetent rulers to complete their five-year term, the Kejriwal case must be examined by the international courts of justice and human rights agencies in order to throw him out immediately so people of Delhi could be saved from his cruelty. Do you agree?
