Modi govt vs AAP: Arvind Kejriwal dares Amit Shah for public debate on governance
Arvind Kejriwal challenges Amit Shah to debate Centre, Delhi govt’s performance
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday challenged BJP national president Amit Shah for a public debate at Ramlila Maidan on the performance of Central government and Delhi government.
“Amit Shah ji, our Delhi government has done 10 times more work than what Modi ji has done during last four years. On the other hand, look at the anti-people and wrong deeds of Modi ji, we have not indulged in even a single act of that kind. I challenge you, come let us have a public debate at the Ramliia Maidan in front of the people of Delhi,” Kejriwal stated.
On Amit Shah’s claim that Modi government had allocated three times more money to Poorvanchal areas in the 14th Finance Commission as compared to what the Congress-led government had done in the 13th Finance Commission, Kejriwal said, “Amit Shah ji, how much money did your government provide to Delhi in the 14th Finance Commission?
Merely Rs 325 crore. People of Poorvanchal reside in Delhi also. Why did your government are not providing money for their development? Why here discrimination occure against Poorvanchalis living in Delhi?”
Then Kejriwal further said, “People of Delhi had given merely two works – policing and sanitation to BJP and your party has proved to be a disaster in both. Neither can you been able to keep Delhi clean and nor have you been able to perform policing functions properly. We are giving the responsibility of electricity, water, education and health by the people of Delhi and our performance in these sectors is being lauded the world over.”
