Amid the possibility of an alliance between AAP and Congress, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal hit out at former Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit-led UPA government and claims that he wouldn’t had to introduce a new party if she had run the government well in the state.
While addressing a public rally in the state, CM Kejriwal was quoted saying, “Many people say that Sheila ji also used to run the government in Delhi in the same condition. But she did not run the government well. If she was working well then we did not have the need to float a new party. From schools to hospitals, everything was in bad condition in her regime.”
Hits out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led NDA government, the Delhi Chief Minister said that “Modi government left no stone unturned to stop our work. We want to open new schools, construct hospitals and Mohalla Clinics, but they are not letting us do this. For three years, the Modi government did not pass the file related to CCTV camera installation in Delhi.”
“We need to take permission from the central government for every work. Every state has full powers but not Delhi. People, who hamper the works of government, don’t vote for them again. If they come to power, they will again do the same in the next five years,” added CM Kejriwal.
AAP had declared its candidates for seven parliamentary seats in Delhi.
The results of the forthcoming elections are scheduled on May 23.
