‘PM’s Schemes are not Succeeding’
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. ”
