New Delhi:

Union Home Minister and BJP leader Amit Shah claimed on Saturday that Arvind Kejriwal had won the 2015 Delhi Assembly polls by "misleading people", but this time he would fail. "He (Kejriwal) had won the 2015 election by misleading the public. What happened after that? What happened in Varanasi, Punjab, Haryana? They lost and he will fail in Delhi too this time," Shah said.

"The people of Delhi have made their decision for 2020 as well. The trend is set to continue. We won 88 per cent of the booths in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls," he added. The home minister was addressing a gathering at the "Jeet Ki Goonj" event held in the Jawaharlal Nehru (JLN) Stadium ahead of Delhi Assembly elections.

"When you support the BJP, you support the promise to secure the national boundaries of India. When you support the BJP, you are supporting the mission to make India a global figurehead," Shah told the gathering.

Slamming the Delhi Chief Minister over the state of education in the national capital, Amit Shah said that in last 5 years more than 93 thousand students have left schools. “Who is responsible for this state of education in the state,” Shah asked Kejriwal.  

“You have done nothing in last 5 years expect pollution water, air of Delhi and spending money on advertisement,” Amit Shah added.

During his speech, Amit Shah also launched a scathing attack on Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convenor for making false promises. On the issue of CCTV installation, Shah said that Arvind Kejriwal had promises 15 lakh CCTVs will be installed in Delhi, but failed to keep his promise.

Arvind Kejriwal, on the other hand, told Amit Shah not to make education a part of “dirty politics” or make fun of the hard work put in by students, teachers, and parents of Delhi government schools.

The Delhi chief minister’s reply came after Shah alleged that the AAP did not build new schools after coming to power and also that the condition of existing schools deteriorated.

“Kejriwal had promised to build 500 schools. Far from building new schools, the condition of existing schools is also in shambles. Seven-hundred schools do not have principals, more than 1,000 schools do not have science wing, there is shortage of 19,000 teachers. The Kejriwal government could not spend 30 per cent of the education budget,” Shah tweeted.

Reacting to the allegation, Kejriwal invited Shah to see for himself the condition of government schools in Delhi.

“Don’t make education a part of your dirty politics. Please take out time and come with me to visit government schools. You are surrounded by negativity the whole day, meet our students, you will get some positivity. Do positive politics over education,” he said at a press conference.

Kejriwal also said, “Don’t make fun of the hard work put in by students, teachers, and parents of Delhi government schools.”

He also said that former BJP minister and four-time MLA Harsharan Singh Balli is joining the AAP. Balli was also present at the press conference.
