NEW DELHI : The AAP on Tuesday said the BJP and the Congress are misleading people on the abolition of house tax by saying that it cannot be done.
Aam Aadmi Party's (AAP) Delhi Convener Dilip Pandey said both the Bharatiya Janata Party and the Congress were giving false and misleading statements ever since the AAP announced to abolish house tax and waiver of the the arrears if it came to power in civic bodies.
"People in BJP and the Congress who used to make money on the pretext of house tax are rattled with this announcement. That is why both the parties are misleading Delhi people on the matter," Pandey said.
He said the AAP had made it clear that Delhi would be the first city where there would be no house tax.
"Delhi people are welcoming the AAP's promise of abolishing house tax, but BJP and the Congress are worried. Why are they against the interests of the people?" Pandey asked.
Elections to the 272 wards in three municipal corporations are scheduled for April 23. The results will be out on April 26.
The AAP is gearing up for intensive campaigning for the civic polls from March 31.
Kejriwal has planned several public meetings across the city for the municipal polls.
