Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday said his “people-centric” model of governance was better than Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s model that he alleged was centred around a “handful” of the country’s rich.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday said his “people-centric” model of governance was better than Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s model that he alleged was centred around a “handful” of the country’s rich.

Stressing that he was focusing on governance and not internal fights in Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Kejriwal also said that after coming to power he has realised that his “real fight” was against bureaucracy and he was working on ushering in major “structural” changes.

“I am above all these fights. I am concentrating on governance. I have not come here to fight,” Kejriwal said after launching the book titled “The Crown Prince, The Gladiator and The Hope” authored by AAP leader Ashutosh.

“The man who is at the receiving end of governance would decide whose governance is better. During the elections, people had two models of governance. One was the Kejriwal model of governance of 49 days and the other Modi model of governance of eight months. By giving us 67 seats (in Delhi assembly poll), people have proven that Kejriwal model of governance is better”, he said.

Asked to weight his model of governance against Modi’s, Kejriwal emhasised that “in our model a common man is at the centre whereas in his (Modi) model a handful of the country’s rich people is at the centre.”

“Policies are made for them. But we make policies for common men,” he said.

Kejriwal said that people of Delhi were happy over his decisions to cut electricty tariff and “falling” rate of corruption adding there was a need to reform the bureaucracy.

“Common man is interested in delivery. There is a need to reform the bureaucracy and governance. We will bring in major structural changes.

“For example, we are putting out circulars asking bureaucrats to prepare blueprints on how they intend to collect a certain amount of tax. There would be quarterly milestones and we will provide them governmental resources and better performers would be rewarded,” he said.

He underlined that his real fight was tackling the bureacucracy which “I have realised is not an easy thing”. “They are more keen on saying how things are not done.”

The Delhi Chief Minister, who had unsuccessfully contested against Narendra Modi in Varanasi Lok Sabha constituency, said that the coming five years were “very important” and if “we manage to change Delhi, then the country has reasons to hope.”

“Many things need to be changed. Delhi is a special state. It doesn’t have all the powers. But common men don’t understand that. They are not interested in technicalities on what we have and what the Centre has,” he said.

    See the finger pointing to SELF "PRAISE",:AGGIT","MANIA" and "POWER"...that is NAMO. Every move is AIMED at MORE AND MORE TROUBLES for TAX PAYERS...NO RAHAT...and also bear the RISING COSTS of LIVING in cities due to relentless onslaught of TAXES and FARE-HIKES like BEST in MUMBAI where 30-40% hike to Finance BEST LOSSES of Rs.700 Crores due to plying MAX Buses in NON-PEAK TIMES so EMPTY FREE RUNS

      Sure - just like all socialists of the world, throw away taxpayers hard earned money on free bijli pani to buy votes from Delhi s & claim you are better. So did Mr. Tsipras & look where he landed. All you "Robbing" hoods have the same formulae for success.

          Comparison is uncalled for and incomparable How a CM can compare with PM! CM perhaps is still in cloud not on ground! We Delhi people have been duped - no cost cut either for water and electricity to middle cl families-Water prices have been increased perhaps we will pay for the people who get it free. The electricity charges may also increase shortly. We do not need Govt subsidies as ultimately it is Tax payer,s money. We want genuine cut through better governance. CM should cut the exorbitant expenditure on the largest contingent of so many Minister equivalents! Seven times more than the last Congress Govt. The prices of Vegitables have increased and are likely to increase in coming weeks- Please hold these as you are CM and please donot blame any body PM or GOD for this as claimed by you in your election speeches.

                            Bcoz question was asked. When was the last time Modi has taken any question? He is the real Bhagoda! Modi Model is only Bhashan.

                                    "Thothaa Chana Baje Ghanaa". Avoid comparing with Modi till, at least 7 years.

                                      Hamare galleme hamare share hai. Stop barking on your own. You are better then PM only with Hitler mindset of throwing people who opposes you. It is not you who should say you are better then Modi. Common man should say that. Plz prove it. Else people will call you ek din ka thughlak sultan.
