BJP will be defeated in UP elections: Kejriwal
The "pain" being suffered by people due to demonetisation will cost BJP Uttar Pradesh in the upcoming Assembly polls, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Thursday, vowing to "expose" the ruling party in the Centre across the country.
Addressing a public meeting here, he said had the "intention" of the government been welfare of the people, it would have waived farm loans instead of writing off the debt of "friendly industrialists".
Kejriwal's over half-an-hour-long speech was punctuated by repeated exhortations to the crowd to spread the "real truth" behind the currency ban, which he described as a "conspiracy" and "scam" implemented to favour the corporates.
"Modiji could become the Prime Minister because of people of Uttar Pradesh, who gave 73 seats out of 80 to him in the general elections. Now it is your responsibility. Many people told me, they will avenge every minute they had to spend standing in queue due to demonetisation," Kejriwal said.
