Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Thursday took a dig at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, saying that the AAP cheif will win the first prize if a competition to make false promises is held in the country. He also alleged that the AAP leader had forgotten the promises he had made to the people of Delhi.
"If there is a competition in the country of making false promises, Kejriwal would definitely get the first prize. I have come to remind you that you forgot the promises you made, but neither the people of Delhi nor BJP workers have forgotten," Shah said.
The Union minister was addressing a public meeting in Matiala constituency ahead of the Delhi Assembly elections here on February 8. "You became CM with the help of Anna Hazare but couldn’t bring a law for Lokpal and when Modi ji brought it you didn’t implement it here," he said.
For four and a half years the chief minister kept saying Prime Minister Narendra Modi did not let him work so development could not be done in Delhi, Shah said. "Now, you (Kejriwal) are saying that you developed Delhi in five years so 'lage raho Kejriwal'," he added.
