New Delhi: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday said the people should hold themselves responsible for dengue outbreaks if they vote for BJP in the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) elections.

“If you vote for BJP and someone in your house suffers from dengue or chikungunya you will be held responsible for it. If BJP comes to power in MCD then Delhi will remain dirty for the next five years,” said Kejriwal.

The CM also urged the electorate not to waste their vote by opting for Congress.

He also accused the BJP of trying to cover up its corruption in the three municipal corporations by projecting the name of Prime Minister Narendra Modi ahead of the civic polls, and asserted the strategy would not work.

"How will Modi ji improve the situation in MCD. Work in the MCD will not be undertaken by Narendra Modi, but local BJP leaders like Vijender Gupta and others," he said.

Delhi Congress chief Ajay Maken said Kejriwal is playing blame game. “He has been unable to perform his duties and is blaming others now. The CM should tell us what he has done for Delhi in last three years”.

The CM also accused the BJP of "completely destroying" the MCD during its 10-year rule.

AAP MLA Somnath Bharti said BJP is responsible for all healthcare problems in the national capital. “Prime Minister is busy in international affairs and BJP is asking for votes in the name of Modi,” he said.

BJP’s Nupur Sharma said health is a state subject but Kejriwal is always absent from the state. “If BJP was responsible then court would have pulled up the BJP and not Delhi government”.

The elections to all the 272 wards of the three civic bodies will be held on Sunday.
