New Delhi: Chief Minister Vijay Rupani on Monday alleged that the AAP Government in Delhi has spent five years in giving hollow promises, but if the BJP comes into power it will develop the national capital on the Gujarat Model and put it on fast-track growth trajectory.
Rupani is on his second round of campaigning in Delhi that is going to the polls on Saturday and counting will take place on February 11.
While addressing a public rally in Ghode Baba Mandir locality under the Madipur Assemblty constituency, the Chief Minister promised voters that his party will take up infrastructure development and work on basic amenities that the Arvind Kejriwal Government failed to give in the five years of its rule.
Mounting a scathing attack on the AAP Government, he asserted that it had failed to supply potable water to the Delhites and that the people should vote in large numbers for the BJP candidates to serve the people better and address their basic issues.
Rupani asserted, “The Kejriwal Government was more interested in appeasement of minorities and paying Rs 40,000 salaries to maulvis, whereas it never bothered to give salaries to temple pujaris. People need to understand that such appeasement is not at all in the interest of the society and the State.”
When the AAP government is busy in appeasing minorities, “Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah run government is working in the national interest,” he said. It scrapped Article 370, it introduced Citizens Amendment Act and is bringing in NCR and NPR to bring equality, he added.
After AAP, Rupani’s next target was the Congress party. He alleged that whatever is happening at the Shaheen Bagh is an activity to create a partition. “They are more concerned about the Bangladeshis than Hindus living on the footpath,” the Chief Minister said and appealed the people that time has come to decide “whether you want a nationalistic party to serve you or you want those who want another partition.”
He said the Central Government has implemented schemes like Ayushman and Ma Vatsalya cards to give health and medical services to the deprived and people. The government has allocated Rs 12,000 crore for the implementation of these schemes in Gujarat and it will benefit some eight lakh families.
