Addressing a rally on Tuesday, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal said, “The AAP government in Delhi arranged your school, water, medicine (Aapke school ka intezam kar diya, aapke paani ka intezam kr diya, aapke dawa daru ka intezam kar diya).” The chief minister after having understood the usage of ‘daru’ (alcohol) in his address, stopped, and corrected himself saying, “Only medicine, not alcohol (daru ka nhi dawa ka).” He jokingly observed that one from the crowd had become ‘happy’.
Moreover, Kejriwal also took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s recent comments on unauthorised colonies, he said it is very easy to talk about them from Ramlila Maidan but it is difficult to work there.
“It is very easy to talk about unauthorised colonies from Ramlila Maidan but it is difficult to work there,” he said, without naming Modi.
“We (Delhi government) have worked extensively in unauthorised colonies and proved that welfare schemes can be implemented in these colonies,” he added.
He also launched the ‘Mukhyamantri Aawas Yojana’ for the residents of Jhuggi Jhopri (JJ) clusters and said the AAP government would provide a pucca house to every citizen of Delhi.
Kejriwal said that 65,000 families residing in slum areas were distributed ownership certificates and they would soon be provided pucca houses.
