Only I can solve Delhi's problems: Kejriwal

Only I can solve Delhi's problems: Kejriwal

Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his comments against the outfit. He said that the BJP’s body language is showing signs of nervousness.

“I know to do dharnas as well as govern. Only I can solve the problems of the people of Delhi,” said the AAP leader.

“I will not respond to the personal comments they have made against me. I have never done so. I made allegations but never commented against anyone’s personality,” Kejirwal said in a press conference.

He was referring to attacks made by Modi and other party leaders against him in a rally at Ramlila Maidan here. Modi had said without naming Kejriwal that if he is an anarchist, he should rush to jungle and work with Maoists.

 Other BJP leaders, too, attacked him for his organising a dharna while he was the chief minister.

 “He could not assure that he would halve the electricity charges. Instead, he offered a solution of providing a bulb that can reduce consumption and give a yearly benefit of Rs 300,” he said.

“Only I can reduce electricity charges by half. They will not because they do not want to,” said Kejriwal.

He said that promise has been made to provide houses to slum dwellers by 2022. “Who knows what will happen then?” he said.

He also ridiculed the assertion that an ordinance has been passed to legalise unauthorised colonies and said that nothing has been done so far. 

“They alleged we manufacture lies, but reality is otherwise. BJP president Amit Shah asserted that prices of come down. In fact, prices have gone up. Vegetables are being sold at very high prices,” he said.

 He also responded to the allegation by Modi that rumours are being spread that the superannuation age of government employees was being reduced.

 He showed the copy of a order of the Haryana government of reducing it to 58 from 60 and said that government employees are aware of the move by the Centre.

“The prime minister took 7 months to clean his office, it would require years to come to lower level. I curbed corruption in 49 days,” boasted the AAP leader who was flanked by senior leaders Yogendra Yadav and Manish Sisodia.
