Delhi Flood: AAP accuses BJP of plotting ittext_fields
New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders on Friday called the Delhi flood a BJP-made phenomenon, as the water was intentionally released from the BJP-ruled Hathnikund Barrage in Haryana.
AAP leaders shared a video on Twitter that shows a youth standing at the Hathnikund Barrage and describing an alleged conspiracy to divert the water towards Delhi, while the canal going towards Uttar Pradesh remained completely dry.
"Did the BJP plot a deep conspiracy to flood Delhi? Does the BJP want to seek revenge for its defeat by causing harm to the people of Delhi through floods? The BJP has become blinded by hatred towards the people of Delhi,” AAP said in Tweet.
"Delhi floods are manufactured by the BJP. Videos show that the entire water from Hathinikund was diverted toward Delhi between July 9 and July 13. Why was this allowed? Questions must be asked. PM Modi is busy on a tour when five states are suffering due to floods," said AAP spokesperson Priyanka Kakkar.
Haryana Chief Minister Manhar Lal Khattar should be questioned on how much water was released in the Western-Eastern canal from Hathnikund Barrage on July 9, AAP Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh said.
"It will expose them. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is working to rescue the people. We have saved 20,000 people," Singh claimed.
He added that the floods in Delhi were pre-planned by the BJP, adding that as per the logbook between July 12 and July 13, the whole water was released towards Delhi from the Hathikund Barrage.
"Why do they hate Delhiites so much? And their minister Anurag Thakur is making fun of Delhi during the crisis. The PM is on a foreign tour, leaving behind five flood-affected states. He should have taught his party leaders not to do politics in these hours of crisis," Singh said.
