New Delhi: A report titled ‘A Tale of Betrayal — Aam Aadmi Party’s Manifesto Review’ revealed that the party failed to deliver on all the 70 promises mentioned in its manifesto released ahead of 2015 Delhi Assembly elections.

The report released on Tuesday by Public Policy Research Centre (PPRC), a think tank, said that the AAP government has failed to deliver 67 promises and three promises are nothing but misleading statements on issues beyond its preview.

The report was released by PPRC director Dr Vinay Sahasrabuddhe. “The politics of obstruction adopted by the Aam Aadmi Party government has not only created an atmosphere of pessimism for the people of Delhi but has also stalled implementation of important public welfare schemes in Delhi,” said Dr Sahasrabuddhe.

According to the report, in education sector work has started on only five per cent of the schools whereas they claimed to build 500 schools. The performance in higher education sector remains deplorable.

The Delhi government disbursed loans to only 0.13 per cent of the total number of students passing out of Delhi schools. The promise of opening 20 new degree colleges remains undelivered. Upto 50 per cent of vacancies for teaching staff remain unfilled.

The condition of much talked about “mohalla clinics” is deplorable and there are no standard operating procedures for PHCs due to which citizens are at the mercy of individuals rather than relying on robust institutions.
