Launching the campaign, Congress Delhi president Anil Chaudhary said the party’s MCD election campaign will centre around issues affecting people and that only the Congress will provide solutions to the “water crisis situation” in the national capital.
Lashing out at the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), he alleged that Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has cheated the poor people of Delhi by promising free 20 kilolitres of water. The water people get is unfit for consumption, Chaudhary said.
“Our slogan for the MCD election will be ‘Gandhe Pani Ka Hal, RO Jal’ to make Delhi ‘Beemari Mukt’ (free of diseases) as clean water is everyone’s right,” he said.
Earlier, the Congress launched a campaign called “House Tax-Pichhla Maaf, Agla Half”, in which it promised to waive dues of private residential buildings and reduce the present property tax by 50 per cent.
