If Modi wins, there will be no poll after 2019: CM
Kejriwal appeals to people to ensure defeat of saffron party
NEW DELHI: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday claimed that if the BJP forms the next government at the Centre, Narendra Modi will become prime minister of the country forever as there will be no election after the 2019 polls. Kejriwal said he is convinced that if the Modi government wins the 2019 elections then these would be the last elections and they will change the constitution, just as Sakshi Maharaj has claimed.
While making the allegations, Kejriwal appealed to the people to ensure the defeat of the saffron party.
"Today, every patriot should have only one motive to stop the Modi government from coming back to power again at any cost... if they (BJP) come to power in 2019, he (Modi) will be the prime minister forever," he said.
If Modi becomes the prime minister again, there will be no election in the country, warned Kejriwal. He was speaking at a function to unveil a book "Vada Faramoshi", a compilation of replies under the Right to Information Act to queries on the Central government's works. The book was written by Neeraj Kumar, Sanjoy Basu and Shashi Shekhar.
He said that the present situation of the country is scary because when a citizen asks questions or raises his voice against the government, he is termed as "anti-national".
Commenting on the recent viral video of a Muslim family being brutally beaten by goons, he said that it is being done in the name of Hindutva although nowhere in Hindu religion is written to beat the Muslims or for that matter anyone. Comparing the situation to the one prevailing in Germany during Hitler's rule where people were beaten publicly if they raised their voices against Hitler's regime, he said "we are facing the same conditions in our country today. Minorities are beaten up if they ask any questions about the government and its actions."
The chief minister made the claim referring to the recent incident involving a "brutal" attack on the members of Muslim family in Gurugram, and said the people from minority community were being "beaten up, harassed and murdered today without any fault". "Today, anyone who questions the Modi government is labelled an 'anti-national'," he added.
The seven Lok Sabha seats in Delhi will go to polls on May 12.
