New Delhi: The BJP on Saturday claimed that the Arvind Kejriwal has admitted its failure by withdrawing the decision to implement the odd-even scheme. 

“Due to the negligence of the AAP government, administration in Delhi has collapsed and it is sad that Delhi is not ready to meet any emergency situation,” Delhi BJP president Manoj Tiwari said in a statement.

Mr Tiwari alleged that due to lethargy and negligence of Kejriwal government on the one hand Delhi has become a balloon of poisonous gases and on the other hand city’s administrative system has become a subject of ridicule today.   

”Kejriwal government completely failed in taking preventive steps against pollution and it has taken immature steps to deal with the crisis. It announced the implementation of odd-even system in haste but it did not make necessary alternative arrangements for it. Everybody knows that the DTC fleet has completely collapsed.

Only 1,800 buses in the fleet of DTC are plying on the roads and in this situation the announcement of the government for free journey is only a politically motivated step. It would have been better if the Government had taken buses from other states or the private sector for plying on the DTC roads in place of indulging in politics,” added Mr Tiwari. 

According to Mr Tiwari, the green tribunal fully understands the situation prevailing in city and it is true that the two wheelers also add to the pollution in Delhi but the Kejriwal government does not accept this fact deliberately.
