Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday attacked Bhartiya Janata Party over the suicide committed by a former jawan. The AAP chief said that BJP is lying to the country on the One Rank One Pension (OROP) scheme, which he alleged has not been implemented. “BJP is roaming around in the country and boasting of the army’s surgical strikes and asking for vote, and on the other hand, you are stabbing soldiers in their backs over OROP,” the Aam Aadmi Party leader said in an interview with TV channel Aaj Tak. Kejriwal said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP have been lying that OROP has been implemented. The leader said Ram Kishan Grewal would not have killed himself if it was implemented. “BJP has betrayed jawans on OROP. Had the BJP implemented OROP, Ram Kishan would not have committed suicide,” Kejriwal said. Kejriwal also denied the charges of politicising the issue of a soldier’s suicide. He said: “What is wrong in a Chief Minister going to meet somebody in a hospital? Why did the Delhi Police stop and detain us?” The CM added that even if his party is doing politics, its result will be favorable for the Army Jawans.

Besides this, Kejriwal also said that if his party wins in Punjab Polls, people will decide the chief minister. Both the Akali Dal and the Congress led by Captain Amarinder Singh have increased a fierce attack on Kejriwal for his non-Punjabi background, as his party emerged as the potential political force in the state for polls which is due early next year. The AAP convenor also lauded his government’s effort in reducing power tariffs in Delhi.

    This Kejriwal is a Joker and is a opportune politician. If he was so concerned about army he should have also visited the soldiers family who have martyred in Uri attacks and also those who lost their lives in the cease fire violation by Pak everyday. He has no sympathy towards the Army, he just wants to find any opportunity to blame the Govt of India for vote bank politics. Please don't listen to his speeches. Support the Modi Govt who is trying hard for development of this Nation.
