In his first press briefing after the announcement of the Delhi Assembly poll date, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal urged the people of Delhi to vote for his party if they feel that the AAP government has worked for them in the last 5 years. "If I have done work, then vote for me. If I have not done work, then don't vote for me," Arvind Kejriwal said. "This time vote for Delhi, not for your political party... We will ask for votes from BJP supporters and Congress supporters," he added.
He also emphasised that his party will fight the upcoming poll on the work done by Delhi government in the last 5 year. Assuring to run a positive campaign, Aam Aadmi Party convenor also said that Delhi don’t want to make the city another MCD. "Police, MCD, DDA are controlled by the BJP. Their work will be compared with that of AAP government. People of Delhi don’t want to make city another MCD,"Arvind Kejriwal said.
During his press conference, Arvind Kejriwal also took dig at Home Minister Amit Shah and said,"Our campaign will be a positive campaign, we don’t know how to do dirty politics. Home Minister only abused me in his rally speech but we won’t abuse someone back."
BJP President Amit Shah on Monday criticised Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for not granting sanction to prosecute those who raised anti-India slogans. “Some students shouted anti-India slogans, said ‘Bharat tere tukde honge’. Tell me should not they be sent to jail?,” alleged Shah. “But Kejriwal is not granting sanction to prosecute them.
Who do you want to save, Kejriwal ji?” he said. Shah had on Sunday too accused the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convener of “favouring the tukde tukde” gang by not giving sanction to prosecute Kanhaiya Kumar, the former president of the Jawaharlal Nehru University Students Union (JNUSU), in the JNU sedition case. Shah further said that the AAP government had done nothing to improve the lives of the people of the national capital and had only deceived them by publishing advertisements.
“Kejriwal had promised to install 15 lakh CCTV cameras for the safety of residents of Delhi. People are looking all over but can’t find any camera,” Shah said. “The AAP government had also promised free wifi, however, your phone’s battery will drain while searching for wifi signals as they are nowhere to be found,” he said.
