Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday launched a scathing attack on Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and the Congress. He asked the Congress to explain who was responsible for 1984 Sikh riots. He also asked the grand party to explain why a person named in the riots was appointed as chief minister of a state.
Referring to Kejriwal, the Prime Minister said that he had come to change the politics but changed himself. The Prime Minister also said that Kejriwal has not even implemented Ayushman Bharat scheme and 10 per cent reservation to EWS in the national capital.
Prime Minister Modi is expected to to address one more rally in the national capital before it goes to polls on May 12. Delhi BJP president Manoj Tiwari had requested PM Modi to address at least four rallies and also zeroed in on five venues. Prime Minister Modi’s another rally is likely to be held at the Nirankari ground in Burari, North Delhi. Senior BJP leader and Union minister Vijay Goel earlier today said that the party chose Ramlila Maidan for the rally considering its political significance.
In 2014, the saffron party bagged all the seven seats with over 46 per cent vote share. The AAP emerged as the second largest party in terms of vote share. Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP got close to 33 per cent vote share. The Congress lost all the seats and came third with just 15 per cent vote share.
Polling in Delhi will take place in the sixth phase on May 12. Results will be declared on May 12.
