NEW DELHI: The Delhi government started work of laying pipelines across Delhi and work on the construction of 10,000 streets and roads are also in progress, asserted Delhi Chief Minister and AAP national convenor Arvind Kejriwal from a rally at Wazirpur of Chandni Chowk constituency. Accusing the Centre ofcreating hurdles for Delhi’s development, the AAP leader said he faced several obstructions at various stages to get clearances from the Centre. He said the people of Delhi pay Rs 1.5 lakh crore worth Income Tax and receive only Rs 325 crore from the Centre.

The situation is similar to the time before India got independence. First Britishers looted us, now the central government is looting us,” the chief minister said. “Just for political enmity, PM Modi stopped the development work for the common man of Delhi. Last time you voted for him, but this time do not vote for him, otherwise he would not let me work for development,” he said. Also Read – Two brothers held for snatchingsWhile addressing the gathering, CM Arvind Kejriwal said, ”Four years ago, you elected and gave a huge responsibility to a humble man like me. I am forever grateful for this favour. We will never forget it. We are ready to sacrifice our lives for the people of Delhi. For the past 70 years, no party has done as much work as Aam Aadmi Party in Delhi.” He added, “In the past four years we have done so much, but the Modi government has left no stone unturned in creating hurdles in our work. We want to make schools, hospitals, mohalla clinics, install CCTV’s but they are the ones who are stopping us.” Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said full statehood for Delhi will ensure that children scoring even 60 per cent marks get admission in colleges in Delhi. Meanwhile, a big number of women participated in the ‘Jhadu Chalao, Gundagardi Bhagao’ March that was launched in Kalkaji Vidhan Sabha in presence of AAP South Delhi Candidate Raghav Chadha and Kalkaji MLA Avtar Singh. Such marches will be held through all legislative assemblies over the coming month. Raghav Chadha said, “South Delhi is plagued with politics of muscle and money power and so we have been ruled by goons and ruffians for a long time. Now you have a chance to weed out the politics of Intimidation and instead send a decent and sensitive person to the Parliament. This is your opportunity to vote for someone who is not abusive, makes women feel comfortable and safe and has the sensibility and sensitivity to serve the people right.”

The names of the deceased were withheld pending family notification.Medics took Virgen and the surviving passengers to a hospital for treatment of moderate to serious injuries, Garrow said.About an hour after the fatal accident, Border Patrol personnel in the area came across another vehicle believed to have been involved in the apparent human-smuggling attempt and arrested a second man. The suspect’s name was not released.Virgen was booked into San Diego Central Jail early this morning on suspicion of three counts of vehicular manslaughter. He was being held on $150,000 bail pending arraignment, scheduled for Tuesday afternoon.
