Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today launched a scathing attack on the Narendra Modi government accusing it of indulging in communal politics.
Speaking at the Aam Aadmi Party’s National Conference at the Ramlila Maidan in New Delhi, Kejriwal said, “People, who are trying to divide the society on communal lines, are ISI agents. What Pakistan couldn’t do in 70 years, the BJP has done it in three years.”
Referring to the upcoming Gujarat Assembly polls, Kejriwal asked people in the state to vote for any party which they think can defeat the ruling BJP.
“If somewhere the AAP is winning, then give your vote for AAP. If any other party is winning, give the vote to them. But defeat the BJP,” Kejriwal said.
“I request the people of Gujarat to give your vote to that candidate or party who can defeat the BJP,” the CM said.
Party leaders including Delhi ministers Manish Sisodia and Gopal Rai as well as Bhagwant Mann, an MP from Punjab, spoke on the occasion.
It was at Ramlila Maidan where the India Against Corruption movement led by Anna Hazare started, later giving birth to the AAP in 2012.
The Delhi CM also spoke about the achievements of AAP’s government since coming to power after their 49-day stint in 2014.
“Our 49-day stint in the Delhi government eradicated corruption from its roots. The traffic police refrained from taking bribe at the signals,” said Kejriwal.
“We were hounded by the Income Tax Department. They have slapped 33 cases on me, and 8 each against Manish Sisodia and Satyendra Jain. But they can’t break our will power,” Kejriwal stated.
The national conference of was attended by a large number of AAP MLAs from Delhi and Punjab as well as AAP corporators from Delhi.
