BJP kickstarts its awareness yatra

delhi Updated: Feb 12, 2012 00:44 IST

Reaching out to people ahead of the MCD polls, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Saturday launched a yatra to create awareness on what it called a “corrupt” Congress government in Delhi and issues that concern the common man.

The ‘Jansangharsh Yatra’, which was flagged off from Burari by Delhi unit president Vijender Gupta, will cover the city in 15 days.

Gupta asked the Central government why chief minister Sheila Dikshit was not being held responsible for the CWG scam and why the culprits were not being probed in the 2G scam.

He slammed Dikshit, saying that in the past five years neither any colony had been authorised, nor a college under Delhi University had been opened.

He claimed that power tariff was to be reduced in 2010, but Dikshit opposed it, and the rates have instead increased since then. Senior leader VK Malhotra said Delhi is no longer safe for women and has become a land of criminals, rapists and mafia.
