Arvind Kejriwal says Centre 'sucking blood of people of Delhi' Escalating the bitterness, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today lambasted the Centre over fund allocation, accusing it of "sucking the blood" of residents of the national capital. Addressing a rally of sanitation workers at the Ramlila Maidan here, Kejriwal assured them of apprising FM Arun Jaitley of the precarious situation of the civic bodies in terms of funds. "The people of Delhi give Rs 1,30,000 crore in terms of tax to the central government. I want to tell you (sanitation workers) that central government does not give funds to us, instead we give funds to the Centre which is sucking the blood of people of Delhi," he said.
