The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Wednesday termed the first poll rally of Prime Minister Narendra Modi at Ramlila Ground as a “jumla-filled speech”.

The party said that the PM could not name even five development works that his seven MPs did in the city.

Modi, without naming the AAP, had said that Delhi was a state where a new political culture of “naakampanthi (non performance)” was established by the state dispensation.

AAP’s national spokesperson Saurabh Bharadwaj said that as per current constitutional setup, the central government is directly responsible for matters of land, police, services and public order.

“The PM cannot run away from Delhi by just delivering a jumla-filled speech. He should have presented his report card of the last five years for Delhi. He did not tell why he and his lieutenant governor created hurdles for every welfare scheme for Delhiites. The traders are disappointed because Modi ji offered no solution for sealing,” Bharadwaj said. “Delhi Police needs large scale recruitment but Modi ji did not even give a solution. Nearly 60% people live in unauthorised colonies but the PM did not explain why his government stalled regularisation process.”
