The steps taken by Arvind Kejriwal led AAP government present a "confusing picture" and only time will tell how he fulfils his promises, former Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit said on Tuesday.
"It is very difficult to comment at this time about what his plan of action will be. His moves are forming a confusing picture," Dikshit said.
"He is definitely trying to fulfill the promises AAP has made in his manifestos but only time will tell. Let's see how he does it," she said.
Trying to find a chink in Kejriwal's armour, Dikshit said, "They have announced 20 kilolitres of free water to every household with a meter connection. But those who don't have the connection will not get it and also whether Delhi Jal Board will be able to bear this burden of free water, it remains to be seen."
Quizzed about whether the newly formed AAP government will be able to reduce the power tariffs, Dikshit said, "That's probably why he has gone to CAG. He doesn't want the companies to audit, he wants to do it. If CAG agrees, then it's well and good."
Dikshit was speaking on the sidelines of the launch of a book's second edition titled 'Blunders and Way Out'.
The book written by Prof Bhim Singh, Chairman of the Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party, is an account of the so called 'blunders' committed by the leaders in Delhi and Jammu and Kashmir since 1846.
"There is a lot of distorted information available about Jammu and Kashmir on internet which might prevent the future generations to know about the actual situation and problems that have existed in the state in past and still continue to exist," Bhim Singh said.
