BJP has fulfilled its promise; AAP has disappointed on all fronts, says Modi while wooing voters at Karkardooma.
New Delhi: Launching a scathing attack on chief minister Arvind Kejriwal for not fulfilling his poll promises during his five-year rule in Delhi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday tried to woo voters living in unauthorised colonies by claiming that his party has already fulfilled its promise of regularising these colonies in the national capital.
Addressing his first election rally at Karkardoom, Mr Modi made a fervent appeal to the people to vote for the BJP, saying “Your vote will change the fortune of Delhi and make this city a much safer place.”
There are about 40 lakh people living in about 1,700-odd unauthorised colonies which play a critical role in deciding electoral fortunes in about two dozen Assembly seats.
Mr Modi said: “I don’t need to tell you what Delhi really wants — it is clearly visible. In last year’s Lok Sabha polls, the BJP was strengthened by the people of Delhi, who gave all seven Lok Sabha seats to BJP. Their vote helped in changing the fortunes of this country.”
The BJP had secured around 53 per cent vote share in the Parliamentary elections in which AAP was decimated to third position.
In the Karkardooma rally, Mr Modi promised that the Central government will provide “pucca” houses to all poor families by 2022 and alleged that the AAP will continue to stall welfare schemes.
Mr Modi alleged that this party only believes in doing politics. “I feel sad when I see that PM Awas Yojana is not being implemented in Delhi,” he said adding that the AAP government also denied benefit of Ayushman Bharat scheme.
. The Centre made two crore houses across the country and also made two crore new houses, but not a single one was constructed in Delhi,” he said adding that the AAP government also denied benefit of Ayushman Bharat scheme.
He alleged that everyone wants to own a house, but till the time, these people (AAP) are in power, they will keep on blocking such projects. That’s because they only know how to indulge in politics.
“But people of Delhi are still waiting for Lokpal. What happened to such a big movement and tall promises? Good intentions are needed to take decisions like this,” said the PM.
