I have been disappointed with Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal lately vis a vis his stand on the “Bharat Mata ki Jai” controversy and some other issues. Also his party’s ideology is not at all aligned with mine.
However I must admit that I have “felt” his presence. I have “felt” there is a government working for us ever since he came to power.
This is how
1. These are the electricity bills for this month, Rs. 800 and Rs. 390 for the two floors of my home. I paid Rs. 1190 total, versus Rs. 5000-6000 I used to pay for the same time of the year which went up to Rs. 18000 for peak summer. I run ACs
2. I get zero water bill now
3. Me and Bappa were cribbing about the 10% hike in school fees this year, we paid up and then got a mail from the school that Delhi government has opposed the hike, whoever has paid the fees will get a refund.
4. Saurabh Bharadwaj our MLA has completely solved our water crisis. CR park used to reel under severe water shortage, people used to wake up at 3am to fill tanks.
Saurabh found out about our problem, replaced the rotting pipes which had never been changed since the colony came up and now we don’t go a day without water which is supplied at a fixed reasonable time 7:30 am for a year now.
He also informs us when due to unavoidable circumstances water supply is disrupted. Not just CR Park, he is quietly going about solving the water problem of all localities in his constituency.
I have heard about the other schemes of AAP like Mohalla clinics etc. but I have not “directly” benefited from them so I will not comment here. Just the stuff I have experienced as a citizen/tax payer.
Now tell me. Give me a list of things that have “directly” benefited you under the Modi government in these two years.
Not newspaper articles on schemes/proposed schemes/Make in India/Stand Up India/Yoga India. Just those things that you have experienced in your personal life.
