Modi-Kejri turned Delhi into ‘gas chamber’: Congress

New Delhi, Feb 6 (IANS) The Congress on Thursday accused the Central Government led by Narendra Modi and the Delhi government led by Arvind Kejriwal of turning Delhi into a ‘gas chamber’, saying they did not do anything in the last five years to reduce pollution in the national capital.

Addressing a press conference here, Congress leader Randeep Surjewala said Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal wants “dangal” (fight) and Prime Minister Narendra Modi wants “danga” (riots), whereas the people of Delhi want “dil waalon ki sarkar” (government with a heart) that the Congress can provide).

“Whatever you see in Delhi, from greenery to education… is the result of the work done by (former Delhi chief minister) Sheila Dikshit,” Surjewala, the Congress in-charge of the communication department, said at a press conference here.

“During Sheila Dikshit’s tenure, Delhi’s green cover increased from 22 sq. km to 310 sq. km but the AAP government did not add any green patch in the national capital,” he said.
