Ground reality in Gujarat different from what Narendra Modi portrays: Arvind Kejriwal
Mathura: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convenor Arvind Kejriwal today launched a no-holds-barred attack on Narendra Modi saying the Gujarat Chief Minister had promised to construct 50,000 houses for the poor in the state but not even 50 have been constructed in 11 years.
“BJP is highlighting the developmental model of Gujarat, however, the ground reality is otherwise,” Mr Kejriwal said while addressing a public meeting in Naujheel town, about 70 km from Mathura.
The AAP leader also attacked other BJP ruled states claiming that corruption is rampant there and promises made by them during polls are yet to be fulfilled.
“No action has been taken against mining mafia who killed IPS officer Narendra Singh in Madhya Pradesh,” Mr Kejriwal said.
Narendra Singh, a young IPS officer, was crushed to death under the wheels of a tractor-trolley, allegedly by a member of the mining mafia, after he tried to stop the vehicle carrying stones in Morena district of Madhya Pradesh in May 2012.
Mr Kejriwal also criticised the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and the Samajwadi Party and said that a change of government hardly makes any difference in Uttar Pradesh as both have become “synonymous with corruption”.
He slammed the Congress for price rise and corruption and attributed these to the Congress’ policy of “promoting” the interests of big business houses.
