New Delhi: Delhi BJP president  Tiwari in a letter on Thursday urged chief minister Arvind Kejriwal to “give up” his full statehood demand and work for the people. He said said that due to the politically motivated administrative logjam witnessed in the city, the biggest casualty has been city's development.

The letter stated that parts of the city were crippled due to lack of proper water and electricity supply, not to speak about the  depleted public transport system.


Mr Tiwari has urged that the Kejriwal government should not involve itself in administrative disputes, but instead utilise its powers to get the accounts of the private power companies audited, withdraw the hike in fixed charges and refund Rs 800 crore recovered from the people during the past 4 months.

“In addition, 2,000 electric buses should be purchased to improve the public transport system and every citizen should be supplied drinking water as already announced by the AAP government," Mr Tiwari wrote.

He also wrote that after Wednesday’s decision, the  people are expecting power and water supply to improve, public transport apart from pollution to be accorded top priority, but it is saddening to see that the government has started a new controversy over the posting of bureaucrats.


"It is a pity that the Kejriwal government again at logger heads with the L-G over the issue of posting of bureaucrats in less than a day of the Supreme Court's bench's decision on the dispute between the Kejriwal government and the L-G, their duties and powers," Mr Tiwari added.
