New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday left the flood-hit capital, to participate in the grand Opposition meet being held in Bengaluru, aimed at propping up a formidable challenger against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the run-up to Lok Sabha Elections 2024.

ANI tweeted a video of the Delhi CM leaving his residence with his convoy today. This drew a barrage of brickbats from slew of top BJP functionaries, ranging from Delhi BJP MP Parvesh Sahib Singh to Delhi BJP chief.

Kejriwal government is already in line of fire over its gross neglect of city’s infrastructure before Monsoon and then inept handling during floods. Being subjected to strong public ire, the whole AAP administration found itself on backfoot and eventually mounted attack on BJP-governed Haryana to deflect blame.

BJP leaders today launched a scathing attack on Arvind Kejriwal for leaving the capital, despite city still being inundated with flood water and people battling for basic essentials.

BJP MP Parvesh Singh Sahib said that river Yamuna is about to see fresh rise in danger mark by evening but the Chief Minister has preferred to join ‘meeting of corrupts’ rather than solving people’s woes.


Vishnu Mittal, BJP treasurer for Delhi unit, said that this was a clear example of Kejriwal’s double standards.

“When Delhi is facing severe flood crisis, the Chief Minister has left capital. These are the same people who questioned Prime Minister’s foreign trip when he was on pre-scheduled state visits,” he tweeted.

AAP government, already facing strident criticism over poor flood management, however maintains that all its machinery have been in working mode 24×7 for providing relief to the people of city.

“Those living in relief camps wil soon return to their homes,” it said.

Notably, the Yamuna water in early morning had receded to 205. 48 metres but was expected to go upto more than 206 metres, raising fresh concerns about water deluge in the city. The rise in Yamuna level is likely because of water release from Hathinikund barrage in Haryana.
