Kejriwal’s move well calculated: Javdekar

Addressing the media ersons, BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar, claimed that it was a well calculated move by both the parties to shrug off their responsibilities which they has promised to the people before coming to the power.

He said, ‘It’s a joint operation of these two parties and the reason is Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal wants to avoid questions about the action he had promised to take against corrupt ministers of the Sheila Dikshit government.’

Coming down heavily on Kejriwal, he said, ‘He has launched this planned agitation to save the accused ministers. This is not for the first time he has done this. During Anna Hazare’s agitation at Jantar Mantar in 2013, he ran away from the venue claiming that nothing can be achieved by it and we should come to power. Now, he and his supporters are hitting the streets after coming to the power.’

While referring Kejriwal’s agitation as a drama, the BJP leader said, ‘Congress knows the reality that they cannot face our prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi. Therefore they have supported AAP as crutches. They can go to any extent for power. Kejriwal is looking for an excuse to get out of power.’

On the context of ‘Kejriwal’s objectionable comment on the Republic Day’, he said, ‘Kejriwal has said that Republic Day celebration is nothing but a procession of floats. This is an insult to the nation, to the people and to the defence forces. How can someone make such comment?’

He said, ‘Our country got its Constitution on this day and such language is a challenge to the Constitution. Kejriwal is talking like Naxals. With his remark every patriot or freedom fighter will condemn this attitude towards a national festival.’

Meanwhile, senior BJP leader Arun Jaitley while lambasting the Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal for creating the anarchy said, ‘Countries are run by the rules of the law. No government can take a position that is anarchic in character. Anarchy is the rejection of the rule of law.’

He claimed that the Aam Aaadmi Party (AAP) was born out of reaction against the conventional politics. ‘It is now clear that their alternative politics is anarchy. This has been admitted by its leader. A rebel can do this, but a chief minister of a state should not take this route.’

Party not against reform in indirect taxes: Shahnawaz

NEW DELHI: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday has clarified that the party is not against the reform in indirect taxes.

Statement from the BJP came after Congress leader Jairam Ramesh has recently made a comment that their (BJP) prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi is against the implementation of Goods and Service Tax (GST).

Party spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain, on the sidelines of Convergence India summit, said, ‘The fate of GST will be based on the opinion from the people India. This impression is wrong that BJP is against GST.’

GST, which seeks various indirect taxes like excise, sales and service tax, was proposed by the Atal Bihari Vajpayee government and subsequently supported by Congress-led UPA government.
