New Delhi, FEB 06 2021|| News Desk
With CM Arvind having declared a “Yudh” against pollution, pollution levels are only going up, with January creating a record of sorts for six “severe” pollution days. Delhi Government’s promise of introducing electric vehicles in Delhi has become a big joke, as no bus has been added to the depleted DTC fleet, in the past seven years—Ch. Anil Kumar.
Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee president Ch. Anil Kumar said that with Delhi battling many problems on several fronts, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia was on a tour of Gujarat, and criticizing the condition of hospitals there, whereas the condition of hospitals in Delhi (particularly) Delhi Government’s Covid-specific hospitals), is not something to be very proud of, either.
He said that with the Covid-19 pandemic still active in the Capital, it was no time to relax, and lower the guard in the Covid fight, though Chief Minister Arvind and his Cabinet colleagues were busy, trying to gain a foot-hold for the Aam Aadmi Party in those States where Assembly elections are due.
Ch. Anil Kumar also mocked at the Delhi Government’s oft-repeated decision to introduce electric vehicles in Delhi, as with January recording one of the highest air pollution levels, compared to the same period in 2020, the Delhi Government has reverted to its old alibi of saying that electric vehicles will be added to the DTC fleet to check air pollution in the Capital, though Delhiites have been listening to such hollow promises for the last seven years.
Ch. Anil Kumar said that CM Arvind had begun a “Yudh” against pollution last year, but failed completely, proving that he was totally incapable of providing efficient governance in Delhi. He said that this January, Delhi experienced six “severe” air days as against two in 2020, to call the bluff of the Arvind Government.
Ch. Anil Kumar said that the Arvind Government, which used to blame farmers of the neighboring States for the rising air pollution levels in the Capital, due to stubble burning, but has stopped this blame-game after the farmers began their protests on the borders of Delhi demanding repeal of the three anti-farmer Agricultural Laws, has now been forced to admit that vehicular pollution generated in the city itself was the major cause of air pollution in the Capital, which it had steadfastly refused to acknowledge in the past.
He said that the Aam Aadmi Party Government has not added a single bus to the DTC fleet for the past seven years, and whenever the question of pollution arises, then the Delhi Government starts parroting that more buses will be added to the DTC fleet, which never happens. He said that the Delhi Government had launched the #SwitchDelhi, a mass-awareness campaign to promote the adoption of electric vehicles, but in the absence of Electric Vehicle Charging Stations, this campaign has turned out to be an eye wash.
Ch. Anil Kumar said that with the protesting farmers holding a “Chakka Jam” today, the Deputy Chief Minister should have been present in Delhi, as Chief Minister Arvind has become notorious for retreating to his palatial official residence when confronted with difficult situations.
He said that there are also pressing problems like the strike of sanitation workers due to non-payment of their wages and arrears, which has made Delhi a huge garbage dump, contributing to the pollution levels. Ch. Anil Kumar said that with Deputy CM Sisodia and a number of AAP MLAs having been deputed to States where Assembly elections are due, Delhi has become a rudderless ship, as CM Arvind does not even Tweets on many important issues, anymore.
