Poster War escalates between Aam Aadmi Party and BJP in Delhi

AAP-BJP-Poster-WarJust three days after the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Government in Delhi removed the controversial posters, in which it had taken a direct dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and accused him of putting hindrance to prevent them from discharging their duties, the BJP came up with similar posters and asked CM Arvind Kejriwal why he is not diverting the Rs 526 Ad budget to welfare schemes so that people of Delhi can be benefited from those.

BJP’s Delhi Unit Vice President Kuljit Singh Chahal put the hoardings, which asks Kejriwal why Rs 526 crore is being spent on self-promotion instead of being spent on installing 5 lakh cameras on women’s security, setting up 200 new schools and 50 new colleges, launching 2,000 new buses, providing drinking water to 1,000 unauthorized colonies, providing pension to 5 lakh families for one year or giving employment to 1 lakh unemployed youths.

The Delhi High Court has recently pulled up the Delhi Government for self-promoting advertisements, which sought to eulogize Arvind Kejriwal and called it as a ‘wastage of public money’.  As the court demanded a status report from Kejriwal Government, the Ads were withdrawn from the TV channels and hoarding were removed from the streets.
