Delhi CM and Aam Aadmi Party national convener Arvind Kejriwal has stated that CM Pramod Sawant has made a mockery of himself by saying that the government officials are not listening to him. Instead of backing such a weak leader, Goans should vote to form an AAP government.
After AAP announced free electricity in the state, CM Pramod Sawant announced that the state would provide free water supply up to 16,000 litres per household per month to Goans.
“People did not get free water. On the contrary, they were forced to pay high rates. That’s why CM was forced to confess that the officials were not obeying him”, Kejriwal said.
He said, “A Goan told me recently that his water bill previously ranged between Rs. 1300 to 1500 a month. Ever since Sawant introduced the 16000 liters of free water scheme, his bill has increased to Rs. 6000”.
“I learned from another Goan that he has another house that is closed. Previously he received Rs.50 per month water bill. Now, he has to pay Rs. 1300 per month”, Kejriwal added.
“Anger over high water bills led Sawant to say that the officers do not listen to him, and he will take action against them. Are you such a weak chief minister that your officers don’t listen to you? The high command of your party does not listen to you. Your ministers don’t listen to you. Who listens to you?”, questioned Kejriwal.
Adding he said, “Goans, do you want such a weak chief minister? A CM who could not get the job done by his officer. What is the purpose of such a weak chief minister? Instead, support AAP to form the government in the state this time”.
“Even though Delhi is a half-state and doesn’t have many powers, we have been providing free water and electricity for years. We know how to do it and have done it. Delhi’s people get electricity 24 hours a day. There were no power cuts. This magic can only be achieved by the Aam Aadmi Party”, he said.
