"Arvind Kejriwal has abandoned people at the mercy of Gods and bureaucrats. He is a runaway and from February 23 we are launching a 'Poll Khol Abhiyan' against him to expose the lies he had been telling in the name of common man's welfare," Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee (DPCC) chief Arvinder Singh Lovely said.

Thousands of Congress workers will assemble at Connaught Place's Central Park in the morning on February 23, he said.

“A 20-foot effigy of Kejriwal's falsehood will also be burnt there,” party leader Mukesh Sharma said.

Lovely termed the 49-day AAP government as a "government of promises and no performances" and its sudden departure as an "act of betrayal" to the people.

"Kejriwal has only indulged in telling lies to people. He is a king of lies. And, his mid-way exit will spell doom for ordinary people like safai karmacharis, teachers and DTC employees who will find it difficult to earn their salaries after March 31, since the AAP government did not allow the finance bill to be passed in the Assembly," he said.

"If the subsidies are not going to be extended after March, the water bill and power tariff are going to increase and the sufferer eventually will be the common man, whom Kejriwal claims to fight for," he added.

A committee will be constituted to "examine the anti-people, unconstitutional and unlawful decisions" allegedly taken by the Kejriwal government, he informed.
