What will be AAP’s Main LS Poll Plank? Kejriwal tells

New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will fight next year's Lok Sabha polls on the plank of getting full statehood for Delhi, party supremo and Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Friday.

“The party will fight the coming Lok Sabha election on the full statehood issue”, Kejriway said in the Delhi Assembly during a discussion on the Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi (Amendment) Act, 2023.


'Centre took away rights of Delhi people'

Launching a scathing attack on the BJP, Kejriwal alleged that the Centre took away the rights of Delhi people by enacting the law.

“I assure the people of Delhi that I will get back your rights, we will not let the work of Delhi stop under any circumstances,” said Kejriwal.

Taking a dig at Union Home Minister Amit Shah, Kejriwal said, “I heard the whole speech of Amit Shah who spoke on GNCTD (Amendment) Bill for almost two hours, but he did not say anything about the benefit of the Bill for Delhiites.”

Kejriwal said earlier the Centre had brought an Ordinance, and then the Bill in parliament, which has now become the GNCTD Act after it was passed by both Houses.

“The BJP-led government brought this Act with an intention to create obstacles in the development works of Delhi government,” he alleged.

'Money power and threat of their agencies failed in Delhi'


“They brought the ordinance on services as the money power and threat of their agencies, Enforcement Directorate (ED) and Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had failed in Delhi, though they used these tactics to topple several state governments,” alleged Kejriwal.

“Within three months after the formation of our government in 2015, ACB and services were taken away by bringing a Bill. Their aim behind taking away the services was to stop the work of the Delhi government by threatening and twisting the neck of the officers,” alleged the CM.

Attacking the previous Delhi governments, Kejriwal said, “Delhi was earlier known for its scams like CWG and CNG, but now people talk about free electricity, better education and development.”
