NEW DELHI: Virtually seeking to stoke fears of an impending end of democracy in the country, Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday claimed that if the BJP forms the next government at the Centre, Narendra Modi will become the Prime Minister of the country forever as there will be no election after the 2019 polls.

Mr Kejriwal alleged that the Modi government is “following” German dictator “Adolf Hitler’s tactics” to run the country. While making the allegations, Mr Kejriwal appealed to the people to ensure the defeat of the saffron party.

Mr Kejriwal said: “Today, every patriot should have only one motive to stop the Modi government from coming back to power again at any cost... If they (BJP) come to power in 2019, he (Modi) will be the Prime Minister forever.”

Mr Kejriwal warned that if Mr Modi  becomes the Prime Minister again there will be no election in the country. The Delhi CM was speaking at a function to unveil a book “Vada Faramoshi”, a compilation of replies under the Right to Information Act to queries on the Central government’s works. The book has been written by Neeraj Kumar, Sanjoy Basu and Shashi Shekhar.

The chief minister made the claim referring to the recent incident involving a “brutal” attack on the members of Muslim family in Gurgaon, and said the people from minority community were being “beaten up, harassed and murdered today without any fault”.”Today, anyone who questions the Modi government is labelled an ‘anti-national’,” he added. Delhi will go to polls for seven Lok Sabha seats on May 12.
