‘PM’s Schemes are not Suc­ceed­ing’

The Economic Times - - Econ­omy -

Tak­ing his po­lit­i­cal bat­tle with Modi a notch higher, Ke­jri­wal told ET that the many schemes pro­moted by the prime min­is­ter are “not suc­ceed­ing”. and that so far the Modi gov­ern­ment “has frit­tered away a his­toric man­date”.

“Why is ev­ery­thing fail­ing? It was a his­toric chance for them and even now ev­ery­thing isn’t fin­ished. Abhi bhi sud­har jayein, raste par aa jayein. No one has got such a big man­date post Ra­jiv Gandhi and they have frit­tered away their man­date,” the Delhi CM said.

Ke­jri­wal strongly ar­gued that BJP’s only agenda is to “po­lar­ize”. “BJP keeps think­ing, ‘how do we po­larise, how do we cre­ate vote banks’. Kabhi ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ par di­vide karte hain, kabhi gai par di­vide karte hain. They never think they have to de­liver. They on- ly want to fool. Beyond a point you can­not fool ev­ery­one through PR (pub­lic re­la­tions) and me­dia,” he said.

And he in­sisted that the Jawa­har­lal Nehru Univer­sity con­tro­versy was a “cre­ation of BJP” to “pro­mote di­vi­sive­ness”. “…there is sus­pi­cion that BJP sent those boys who raised anti-In­dia slo­gans (in JNU cam­pus). They were set up by IB (In­tel­li­gence Bureau) to cre­ate a chaos in Delhi,” Ke­jri­wal said.

Ke­jri­wal, who fought and lost against Modi in the 2014 Lok Sabha elec­tions in the Varanasi con­stituency, also said the Modi gov­ern­ment has man­aged to make en­e­mies out of sev­eral key so­cial groups. “…within two years they (BJP gov­ern­ment) have turned farm­ers, traders, stu­dents, teach­ing com­mu­nity, dal­its against them...In­dus­try is speak­ing against them pri­vately. ”
