Delhi chief minister and Aam Aadmi Party supremo Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday during a rally in Lucknow attacked the Prime Minister on demonetization and persuaded residents of Uttar Pradesh not to vote for BJP in the forthcoming state elections.
“Teach Modi a lesson for making them standing in queue to withdraw money from account,” said Kejriwal during the rally towards end of his speech.
“You made Modiji the Prime Minister by giving him 73 out of 80 seats,” said Kejriwal.
The AAP leader added, “This time it is your duty to teach him a lesson as well.
The BJP during the 2014 Lok Sabha elections had won a whopping 71 of the 80 Lok Sabha seats from Uttar Pradesh. The state will see assembly elections early next year.
Kejriwal even added that hardcore supporters of the Bharitya Janta Party have also turned against the party after the note ban.
“I met a person who has been voting for the BJP for the last 30years. He told me that he and his family members only voted for BJP but now they will cast their vote to any other party but not BJP.”
He attacked the BJP-led government’s move to exempt political parties from income tax regulations while depositing scrapped Rs1000 and Rs500 currency notes.
The AAP leader has demanded an independent commission to probe the bank accounts of all the political parties over the last five years.
Kejriwal stated during the rally that 70 percent of donations received by the BJP are in cash.
“I would request Modiji to request party workers of take donations through cheques then ask people to go cashless,” said the Delhi CM.
