New Delhi: Hitting back at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his “anarachist” comment, AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal today said the BJP was rattled ahead of the Delhi assembly elections and was resorting to personal attacks since it had no “positive agenda”.
Attacking the BJP for making “personal” remarks against him, Kejriwal said, the saffron party in Delhi is a “ship without a captain” which has no positive agenda left in this election.
The AAP leader said he would refrain from responding to personal remarks made by the BJP. Highlighting the achievements during his tenure, the former Delhi chief minister said all BJP leaders attacked him at the rally, but not his work during the 49-day government. The saffron party itself has given a certificate about his “good work”.
“They say we dont know governance. Then who slashed electricity tariff and gave free water to people. Who ordered an audit of electricity companies. Do people involved in 2G and coal scams know governance?
“We know governance and we also know how to stage a dharna,” Kejriwal said in a hurriedly called press conference at make-shift party office in 173 North Avenue.
The AAP leader said that the way he was ridiculed at the Ram Lila Maidan, where country’s largest protest took place against corruption under the Anna movement, was “not right”.
Taking a jibe at Prime Minister Modi over his assurances of 24-hour free electricity, Kejriwal said the BJP is not able to fulfill the promises it made during last assembly and Lok Sabha elections and was again making new promises before delivering anything on the old ones.
“Its only the Aam Aadmi Party that has a formula to bring down the electricity tariff and corruption. Only we can do it.”
“With every election, they come up with a new promise. Modi says it took seven months to eradicate corruption from the top. But when will you (Modi) reach the bottom? Firstly, you should know how to do it. If you dont, then tell us. We did it 49 days. But for that you need good intention to fight corruption,”
The BJP today kickstarted its poll campaign for Delhi by wooing the voters with a host of promises. The party singled out ‘anarchist’ AAP leader Kejriwal for attack and asked voters to punish him for “wasting” one year.
