New Delhi: Ahead of the Bawana bypoll, Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday dubbed former MLA Ved Prakash, who had quit Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) just before the MCD polls, as a “traitor” who ditched the party and the people of his constituency.

Mr Prakash, who was legislator from Bawana, resigned from his Assembly and AAP membership in March this year and joined the BJP.

Canvasing support for Ramchandra, who is the party’s candidate from Bawana, Kejriwal said Ramchandra’s top priority is improving the conditions and solving the water problem in the area.

“There is still time for elections but Ramchandra is taking me to all the lanes. He is asking me to first get the roads fixed rather than thinking about elections. In one month, the construction of roads will start and in three months they will be ready,” Mr Kejriwal said.

He also assured the residents that the problem of water in the area will be solved and said he has brought along two officials from the department concerned to address the issue. Chief minister Arvind Kejriwal recently had also interacted with farmers in the area.
