‘Stop revenge, do our work or let us work’: Kejriwal tells BJP

New Delhi: Highlighting the accomplishments of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday accused the ruling BJP at the Centre of obstructing the initiatives taken by his government rather than letting them serve the people of Delhi.

Speaking at a public event in Burari, Kejriwal differentiated the pace at which the AAP and BJP works.

“Ever since the BJP lost to AAP in Delhi elections, they are out for revenge. All they can ever think and plot about is how to be a hindrance. What the AAP has accomplished in six months, no other party in Delhi has ever managed to do so. Electricity and water bills have reduced and so has corruption,” Kejriwal said.

Stating that the BJP has devoted all its energy into thwarting AAP rather than focusing on issues like women’s safety and corruption, Kejriwal said that this government has dedicated day and night in the service of the people of Delhi.

Taking a swipe at Prime Minster Narendra Modi, Kejriwal said how the anti-corruption force has been corrupted by the former’s resources.

“On 8th June, PM Modi sent his paramilitary force to take control over our anti-corruption force. In three months of our time, we were able to arrest more than 50 corrupt officers. We had struck fear into their hearts. But since the two months that Modi ji has taken over, not a single officer has been arrested,” he said.

The Delhi Chief Minister also used the occasion to mock the Centre, saying his government was working 24 hours while the BJP has been arresting an AAP MLA every month.

“The BJP’s job is to create trouble, ours is to keep working. Either do our work or let us do our work but don’t be an obstruction,” Kejriwal said. (ANI)
