New Delhi: Chief Minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal ridiculed Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government plans on Tuesday, May 29 by taking to Twitter. He posted a cartoon picture on Twitter comparing the development work done by the AAP (Aam Aadmi Party) to that of the BJP government.
In the cartoon, there are two buildings, one high rise building depicting the development done by AAP and the other (still under construction) depicting the development work (or lack thereof) of the BJP-led central government. The AAP’s building had, listed on each floor, the various works undertaken by them. The BJP’s pseudo building has just a board in the centre reading: “Nirman karya pragathi par hai” meaning “development in progress.”
The AAP-led Delhi government’s development works that were listed on the building were Mohalla Clinic (local clinic), cheap electricity, free water supply, free medical treatment and modernised government schools. The unambiguous Twitter post projects the BJP government as weak, showing no signs of development.

The accusatory tweet came shortly after the Delhi CM sought the prime minister’s help in the national capital’s water supply issues where he tried to discuss the water problems faced by Delhi. In the letter, he says, “The city had been receiving water to the tune of 1,133 cusecs since 1996. However, now after 22 years of uninterrupted supply, Haryana has suddenly moved to contest the national capital’s right over the water, going so far as to partially cut the supply.”
He also added that the highest court of justice in the country had ordered Haryana to keep supplying the same quantity of water till May 21, meaning that they could eventually reduce the water supply after the prescribed date. If such a thing happens, he said, then Delhi would have a serious shortage of water which, in turn, could lead to dire law and order condition.
At the end, Kejriwal insisted that the PM use his “good offices” and let Delhi get the water supply also asking him not to disrupt the matter till the final decision on the issue is taken by the courts.
