During his rally in Delhi Prime Minister Narendra Modi mocks at Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), and calls it as a ‘temporary party’.
When someone looks at India, their attention is first drawn to Delhi, says the PM.
Addressing an election rally in Rohini in north Delhi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi attacked rival parties, Congress and Aam Aadmi Party, for wasting years of Delhi during their rule. “Congress is an old party, stronger enough to hold fraud for 15 years and AAP is small party hence they wasted one year,” the PM said.
Modi also hit out at the Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party on the issue of malpractice in donations received by the party. PM said that the Aam Aadmi Party had been till now talking about who was more corrupt, the Congress or the Bharatiya Janata Party.
“Now we know the truth. Look at their shamelessness,” he said, and questioned AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal on accepting support from the Congress for forming the government last year.
“He (Kejriwal) had said ‘we (AAP) had not asked for support but they (Congress) gave it to us.’
“Similarly they will say they had not asked for the money but they gave it to us,” Modi said.
A group of former AAP volunteers on Monday alleged malpractice in donations received by the Kejriwal-led party.
“Our country can forgive mistakes, but not fraudsters,” the Prime Minister said.
Modi said the people of Delhi had elected BJP leaders from all seven Lok Sabha seats in the capital in the 2014 general elections and urged to continue their support in the upcoming Delhi Assembly elections.
“You made me your own. Now it is my responsibility to give back the love showered on me by the people of Delhi.
“I want to assure Delhi people, the love showered by you will be returned by me with interest and with development,” he said.
Defending the Ordinances passed by Centre, the PM said it was necessary for people. “New land acquisition law brought through ordinance to be used for development of villages; not for the rich,” he said.
Attacking Congress, the PM took a jibe at former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi saying he was troubled more because he presented himself as Mr. Clean. He also talked about media sidelining Gandhi’s and helplessness of mother-son duo to revive Congress.
Delhi goes to polls February 7 and votes will be counted February 10.
