New Delhi, Jan 22 (UNI) ''Sealing, billing and killing,'' is how the BJP today described the nine years of the Congress government in Delhi.

The BJP today presented a report card of the nine years of the Sheila Dikshit government in Delhi.

The 28-page report ''Sheila Government Nine Years : Achievements and Failures'' was released here by former Union Ministers Vijay Goel and Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi besides other senior BJP leaders.

Addressing the gathering, Mr Goel challenged the Delhi Chief Minister for a public debate on the ''achievements'' of her nine years of rule.

He claimed that the Congress had fulfilled not even a single promise made in its manifesto for the 2003 polls.

Mr Goel, who is the BJP secretary, said the Sheila Dikshit government had been ''non-sensitive'' towards the problems faced by the people of the national capital.

He also criticised Ms Dikshit for making statements such as ''Delhi would be turned into Paris,'' saying that 90 per cent of the population in the national capital live in miserable conditions.

Mr Goel attacked the Congress government on ''poor'' transport system, ''rampant corruption,'' water, electricity, education, healthcare and regularisation of unauthorsied colonies.

He alleged that the privatisation of electricity was a ''big scandal'' and the bills were being inflated.

The former Union Minister said there was no end to the spate of killings by the Blueline buses and charged the Delhi Government with ''failing'' to secure general amnesty for traders in the sealing drive.

He said Delhi was fast becoming the ''Crime City'' of the country with more than 53,000 FIRs registered in various police stations across the national capital.

Mr Goel said the Sheila Dikshit government lacked a consistent policy on any matter and claimed that there was no coordination among different departments.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr Naqvi described the Congress government's nine years as the rule of ''sealing, billing and killing''.

He said the people of Delhi were ''fed up'' with the policies of the Congress government and wanted a change of guard.
