The Delhi BJP on Saturday hit back at the Aam Aadmi Party’s “Prime Minister Sir” posters, put up across the Capital last week, with one of its own. In the hoardings, the BJP tells “Kejriwal Sir” the things the Delhi CM could have done with the Rs 526 crore the state government had budgeted for its advertisements.

BJP’s Delhi unit Chief Satish Upadhyay said,

The way the AAP government have spent Rs 526 crore on advertisment, Delhi’s public wants to know if this money could have been used rationally by installing 5 lakh cameras for safety, building 200 new schools and 50 new colleges. But the advertisement will do nothing for their future as AAP has just wasted it in advertising for itself,

The hoarding put up by the BJP reads out,

You could have brought 2000 new buses, AC buses in Delhi and you could have solved Delhi’s traffic problem, but you paid no heed to them. You could have looked after the 1,000 unauthorized colonies where there are electricity and water problems. You could have given 1-year pension to 5 lakh people. Delhi’s youngsters were looking up to you to as you had promised WiFi to them…you could have used this money for their development. But you didn’t do any of these.

The AAP government had a week back removed posters and hoardings in which it had taken jibes at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, requesting him to allow the AAP government to work. In its posters and hoardings Kejriwal alleged that the PM was creating hurdles in his government’s functioning.

Earlier this week, the Delhi High Court censured the Kejriwal government saying its mega advertising campaign appears to violate new Supreme Court rules that ban politicians from wasting taxpayers’ money on promoting their accomplishments.
