AAP representatives meet teachers, students from Stanford University
NEW DELHI: Aam Aadmi Party representatives met a delegation of teachers and students from Stanford University on Thursday to discuss the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, current political scenario in the country, Delhi Governance model and the Aam Aadmi Party.
"Delhi is facing a ridiculous situation, the powers of the elected Delhi government are limited and has been curtailed by the Modi led Union Government. We are fighting these elections on the plank of full statehood to Delhi. Once Delhi gets full statehood, most of the problems that Delhi faces due to a multiplicity of agencies would be solved," said AAP leader and North East Delhi candidate Dilip Pandey to the delegation.
The delegation wanted to know the works of the Delhi government done for the people of Delhi, Pandey explained to them, "The Delhi Government supplies free water (20K litres per family per month), cheapest electricity in the country, government schools have seen a turn-around in the last 4 years, healthcare has seen a world of improvement. This all has been possible as we as a political party run on the money of the people and not any corporate. We work for the people and not corporates."
Meanwhile, AAP Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh slammed PM Narendra Modi over his comments against opposition from a rally in Meerut. "Prime Minister Narendra Modi today officially launched his election campaign for the Lok Sabha elections in his trademark style of lampooning the opposition and painting them as anti-national, pro-Pakistanis and portraying himself as the biggest patriot," said Singh.
He also said that the AAP would like to remind PM Modi that Doklam happened in his tenure and his Prime Ministership will be remembered for maximum foreign policy failures. "He has nothing to tell the country in this election campaign about his government's achievements and is, therefore, lowering the political discourse in this campaign," he said.
