Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday blasted the ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) for doing the blame-game over Ayushman Bharat scheme and other government plans. He said Delhi needs a government that will give direction and not resort to blame games.
Addressing an election rally in Dwarka three days before the February 8 Assembly elections, the prime minister accused the AAP dispensation of not implementing the Ayushman Bharat scheme in the national capital.
Modi sought to know if 'mohalla clinics' set up by the AAP government will work if Delhiites fall sick outside city.
The PM also said the people of Delhi have seen how the AAP government practises the politics of hate. The people of Delhi say the country has changed, and now is the time for Delhi's transformation, the prime minister told the gathering.
“Delhi does not need a government which gives opportunity to enemies to attack us,” he said.
The Centre, he added, opened more bank accounts for the poor than the population of US, and built more houses than the population of Sri Lanka.
Earlier in the day, the Aam Aadmi Party released its manifesto, focussing on quality education, health, clean water and 24-hour electricity in the national capital.
Released by Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia as "28-point guarantee card", the manifesto promises doorstep delivery of ration, free pilgrimage to 10 lakh senior citizens and Rs 1 crore compensation to kin of a safai karamchari if he dies on duty.
The party said its vision is to make every family prosperous and it will continue to work for full statehood to Delhi.
The manifesto also included a plan to allow markets for 24 hours under a pilot project.
