RAGHAV CHADHA’S DEBATE CHALLENGE EVOKES REACTION
After AAP leader Raghav Chadha’s claims on Kejriwal Model of Electricity, the social media was abuzz with the counter claims. While many BJP leaders openly criticized Chadha on his claim, many others with non-political background too joined them.
Pratitha Desai Bulchandani, one of the Facebook user wrote “I have been living in Delhi since past three plus years and have been paying my monthly electricity bill of approx 5 k plus. At times even 12 k in summers. Whereas in Goa I never paid a peny more than 2k ever with the consumption being almost same at both the places. This model gives only 200 units free while the per unit rates are very much higher than in Goa.”
Endorsing the post, BJP social media cell in charge Rupesh Kamat wrote “Right from the heart of Delhi resident. Is there anything worth left to debate?.”
The ever increasing COVID-19 cases in Delhi were also highlighted by some of the netizens to take AAP head-on. Giriraj Pai Vernekar quoted a statement by High Court “You were shaken out of slumber, you turned turtle after we asked questions.”
Vernekar wrote “And this shameless @AamAadmiParty wants Goa to learn its Governance model. Goa govt must be given a lot of credit for controlling Covid-19 crisis and not allow it to spiral out of control the way Delhi did.”
There were many other videos that were posted on the Facebook and other social media platforms mocking the challenge of the debate.
AAP has put up hoardings along the important locations in Goa about the debate on electricity model, that could not happen.
