Congress is FINISHED, stop talking about the party: Arvind Kejriwal roars in PM Modi’s Gujarat | India News

NEW DELHI: AAP national convenor and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday made a scathing attack on Sonia Gandhi-led Congress party, saying the country’s main opposition party is now FINISHED. Kejriwal, who was talking to reporters in Ahmedabad, said, “Congress is finished, stop taking Congress party`s question.”

The AAP chief said this when quizzed about Congress leader Ajoy Kumar`s remark that the Punjab government is wasting money on advertisements when it does not have funds to pay the salaries of college professors.

The Delhi CM, who promised to provide the people of Gujarat a “corruption-free” government if the Aam Aadmi Party comes to power in the state, also alleged that it looks like the ruling BJP wants to make Sonia Gandhi “PM from the backdoor.”

The AAP convenor said this while responding to questions regarding BJP`s claims that Narmada Bachao Andolan leader and activist Medha Patkar will be projected as AAP`s Chief Minister candidate in Gujarat Assembly polls.

Delhi CM said, “Saying that AAP is fielding Medha Patkar as a chief ministerial candidate in Gujarat is just like saying that BJP is going to project Sonia Gandhi as Prime Minister Narendra Modi`s successor.”

The AAP’s national convener announced that if his party voted to power in Gujarat, where the Assembly elections are due later this year, it will ensure its chief minister, ministers as well as lawmakers from other parties and government officers do not indulge in corruption and are jailed if caught doing so.

“Whosoever I met in Gujarat said there is corruption everywhere. One has to pay a bribe to get government work done. There is corruption at the lower level and at the top also there are scams. If one speaks against it, he is threatened…There is corruption and hooliganism everywhere in Gujarat,” Kejriwal claimed while talking to reporters at a gathering in Ahmedabad.



The AAP government will make sure every penny collected from the public as tax goes to the service of the people of Gujarat, he said. “Today, I give a guarantee that when the AAP forms government in Gujarat, it will provide a corruption-free and fear-free government,” he said.

Kejriwal also promised to stop “illegal businesses” of present ministers and government officers in Gujarat, investigate “scams” of the present government and recover money collected through corrupt means so that it can be spent on the public.

“We will also open cases of paper leaks of the last 10 years and their masterminds will be arrested and jailed,” the AAP leader said.

“Whenever I visit Gujarat, people talk of different scams. All the large scams during their tenure (of BJP government) will be investigated and the money recovered will be used to provide good schools, electricity — for the service of the public,” he said.

Kejriwal said if voted to power, his party government will ensure the public is not required to pay bribes in government offices. The AAP government will also make arrangements for doorstep delivery of various welfare services as it has done in Delhi, he said.

During his multiple visits to Gujarat in the recent past, Kejriwal had announced a slew of “guarantees”, including free electricity up to 300 units per month, allowances for women and unemployed youth, free and quality healthcare and education and the creation of jobs.
