Worried about country’s sorry state of affairs, will pray on Holi, says CM
New Delhi: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday said he will pray for the country on Holi as he claimed those doing good work are being arrested while those looting the country are getting away.
Addressing a digital press conference, he said he was worried about the state of affairs in the country.
Delhi’s health and education sectors were ignored for 65 years before Manish Sisodia and Satyendar Jain turned things around with their hard work and ensured quality education and healthcare to the poor, he said.
But Prime Minister Narendra Modi has “imprisoned those (Jain and Sisodia)
doing good work for the country, while those looting it are being embraced”, the chief minister said.
Kejriwal said he was not worried about Sisodia and Jain being in jail. “They are brave people who are ready to sacrifice their lives for the country. But the sorry state of affairs in the country worries me.”
He said he will meditate and pray on Holi for the betterment of the country.
“If you also feel the prime minister is not doing the right thing, you should also pray for the country after celebrating the festival,” he said.
Kejriwal said Prime Minister Narendra Modi should not talk about fighting corruption as a BJP MLA in Karnataka was not arrested despite a huge amount of cash was found at his home. However, Manish Sisodia was arrested although nothing was found during raids at the AAP leader’s residence, Kejriwal said.
“Mr Prime Minister, there was nothing found in raids at Manish Sisodia’s residence. He was arrested by applying all sections of the law by CBI, ED. A huge amount of cash was found with your party MLA. He was not arrested?
“You should henceforth not talk about fighting corruption. It doesn’t suit you,” the AAP national convener said in a tweet in Hindi.
The Karnataka High Court on Tuesday granted anticipatory bail to Channagiri BJP MLA Madal Virupakshappa, who is the main accused in the Karnataka Soaps and Detergents (KSDL) contract scam.
