Launching a scathing attack on rival Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief ministerial candidate Arvind Kejriwal dubbed the PM Narendra Modi-led NDA-led alliance at Centre as a ‘U-turn government’, saying that the saffron party had turned its back on all the promises made before the Lok Sabha elections.

“They had said they would do development, now they say they will do conversions, love jihad and make statues of (Nathuram) Godse,” he said referring to controversies such as alleged forceful conversions and demand for statue of Mahatma Gandhi’s killer Nathuram Godse by some outfits.

Addressing rallies in Patel Nagar constituency here, Kejriwal further attacked the BJP-led NDA government on the issue of pricing of essential drugs saying that their prices had been raised tenfold by the government to “favour” some companies.
The former Delhi chief minister took on the establishment over issues of corruption, inflation and black money.

“Everybody had thought that after black money comes to India, each person will get Rs 15 lakh in his Jan Dhan account but the reality is no one has got a single penny,” he said.

Highlighting the achievements of his 49-day government in Delhi, he asked, “If we were able to reduce the power and water bills in 49 days, how has the government not been able to do anything for the people’s respite in 6 months?”

He further promised to lower the electricity rates to half in the capital on coming to power.

Cautioning people on money or sops being offered by other parties, he said, “They will offer you blankets, sarees and money…don’t say no to them. Accept everything, it is your money but vote for AAP.”

    @Abhi Ghosh - For BJP to abolish Article 370 it needed majority in j&k which it did not get, so why do you blame BJP now? It never said it won't bring back blackmoney, it's a work under progress, remember there's a lot of treaties signed in the past with other countries which kinda sauards people who have taken the money offs. Govt is trying to work with these countries. On Anti-corruption india's rating as a has already moved southwards and will continue to go down in the years to come. It's only 8-9 months since the govt took charge, give it 60 months and then judge it.

      All political parties make promises during elections. But many of them are not practicall to fulfil. For eg Indira hi said Garibi hatao and could not achieve. Shastry called for Jai Jawan Jai kisan but even today widow of jawans are not getting pension and kisans are committing suicide. At least Modi has initiated serious actions on black money. Conversions and Ghodse statue are not announced by the Government. For any government to function, opposition also should co operate which is not forthcoming.
