Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s Dare After BJP President Amit Shah’s Barb: Come To Ramlila Maidan

New Delhi: 

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday challenged BJP president Amit Shah to a public debate, following a heated exchange of words that ended up turning into a comparison between the Modi government at the centre and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) administration in New Delhi.

Addressing a BJP rally at Ramlila Maidan early in the day, Mr Shah had accused the AAP leader of stalling the development of New Delhi during his three-and-a-half-year rule. “Kejriwal’s only mantra is to tell lies, repeatedly and forcefully,” he said.

An upset Mr Kejriwal denied the claims on the social media.

“Amit Shahji, our government has done 10 times more than what Modiji has done in the last four years. Look at the anti-people and wrong deeds of Modiji, we have not indulged in a single act of this kind,” the Delhi Chief Minister said in the first of many tweets to be posted in the hours that followed.

He also questioned the extent of funds provided by the centre to the national capital in the 14th Finance Commission. “Merely Rs 325 crore? People of Poorvanchal reside in Delhi also. Why did your government not provide money for their development? Why this discrimination against Poorvanchalis living in Delhi?” he asked.

This was a reference to an accusation by Mr Shah that the Congress had cold-shouldered the eastern region of India — including parts of Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Odisha and Jharkhand — during its rule.

Although the BJP chief claimed that the Modi government had released Rs 13.8 crore to Delhi over the last four years, Mr Kejriwal pointed at the “deteriorating” sanitation levels and law-and-order situation in the city. While sanitation in Delhi comes under BJP-controlled civic bodies, its police force is controlled by the central government.

“The people of Delhi had entrusted you with merely two duties — policing and sanitation — and you have worsened both. You have neither been able to keep Delhi clean nor perform policing functions properly,” the Chief Minister tweeted.

“On the other hand, we were given the responsibility of electricity, water, education and health by the people of Delhi, and our performance in these sectors is being lauded the world over,” he added.

Mr Kejriwal signed off with a dare. “I challenge you, come let’s have a public debate at Ramlila Maidan before the people of Delhi,” he tweeted.

Arvind Kejriwal Says Change PM’s Name Amid Talk Of Renaming Ramlila Maidan

Arvind Kejriwal said that renaming the Ramlila Maidan won’t get the BJP any votes.

New Delhi: 

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today joined Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s niece in her attack on the ruling BJP for using the former Prime Minister’s name after his death for political gains. Amid proposals to rename landmarks after Mr Vajpayee, including the reported move to rechristen the iconic Ramlila Maidan in Delhi, Mr Kejriwal expressed his disapproval with a tweet that said that “such an attempt won’t fetch the BJP votes, but changing the name of the Prime Minister might”.

“Changing name of Ramlila Maidan after Vajpayeeji will not fetch votes. BJP should change the name of the Prime Minister to get some votes because people are not voting on his name,” the Aam Aadmi Party chief tweeted.

Both the Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari and the mayor of the North Delhi Municipal Corporation Adesh Kumar Gupta have denied any such plan.

Mr Tiwari said there was no question of renaming the Ramlila Maidan and some people are just “trying to create a controversy” around it. “It’s a deliberate attempt to spread lies,” he said.

Ramlila Maidan, about the size of two football fields and just two kilometers from the BJP’s headquarters, has been the go-to place for protests and demonstrations. The address is also popular for the grand Ramlila it plays host to every year.

The centre and several state governments, which appear to be on a renaming spree, have decided to replace the existing titles of landmarks, schemes and dedicate projects to the much-respected BJP leader.

The list of proposals so far includes, Jawaharlal Nehru University’s (JNU) School of Management and Entrepreneurship, the Bundelkhand Expressway, – expected to be called as ‘Atal Path’– Chhattisgarh’s upcoming capital Naya Raipur which will be known as Atal Nagar. A ghat along the Sabarmati River in Gujarat and the AIIMS Rishikesh auditorium could also see a name change.

However, Karuna Shukla, Mr Vajpayee’s niece, doubts their intentions. She criticised the way “the BJP was carrying around Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s ashes around the country. “It is a show-off and they are doing it for votes. Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh and his cabinet never remembered him until now, especially when he had created the state.”

Ms Shukla, a former BJP MP from Janjgir-Champa in Chhattisgarh, quit the party ahead of 2013 assembly elections in the state, and joined the Congress in 2014.

“In the past 10 years, the BJP never thought of Atal ji and now, in view of assembly polls in four states, the party is trying to cash in on his death,” she alleged.

But the BJP was quick to dismiss her outburst and alleged that it was in fact Ms Shukla who was trying to politicise her uncle’s death.

“It is unfortunate… Some people have also pointed out why BJP is taking Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s ashes across the country. This is not the first time this has happened…it’s happened with several prime ministers — Nehru’s ashes and Indira Gandhi’s ashes also went to several states,” BJP spokesperson Nalin Kohli said.

It is not a political opportunity but a mark of respect, he added.

Delhi BJP Chief Manoj Tiwari says Ramlila maidan name will not replace with atal bihari Vajpayee

नई दिल्ली: दिल्ली के ऐतिहासिक रामलीला मैदान के नाम को पूर्व प्रधानमंत्री अटल बिहारी वाजपेयी के नाम से बदले जाने को लेकर सियासी गलियों में चर्चा तेज हुई थी कि दिल्ली भाजपा के अध्यक्ष और सांसद मनोज तिवारी ने ऐसी खबरों का खंडन कर दिया. भारतीय जनता पार्टी के नेता मनोज तिवारी ने एक वीडियो जारी कर स्पष्ट कर दिया कि रामलीला मैदान का नाम नहीं बदला जाएगा. हालांकि, इससे पहले खबर आई कि एनडीएसी ने अटल बिहारी वाजपेयी के नाम से बदले जाने का प्रस्ताव दिया है. 

अरविंद केजरीवाल का BJP पर हमला, रामलीला मैदान का नाम बदलने से वोट नहीं मिलेगा, पीएम का नाम बदलें

मनोज तिवारी ने अपने आधिकारिक ट्विटर हैंडल से एक वीडियो जारी कर कहा- कुछ लोग जानबूझकर भ्रम फैलाने की कोशिश कर रहे हैं. मर्यादा पुरुषोत्तम भगवान राम हम सबके आराध्य हैं इसलिये रामलीला मैदान का नाम बदलने का कोई सवाल ही नहीं है. उन्होंने कहा कि कुछ लोग इस पर राजनीति कर रहे हैं. 

इससे पहले दिल्ली के मुख्यमंत्री अरविंद केजरीवाल ने एमसीडी की ओर से अटल बिहारी वाजपेयी के नाम पर रामलीला मैदान का नाम करने की खबर पर तंज कसा. उन्होंने नरेंद्र मोदी का नाम लिए बगैर कहा कि भाजपा को प्रधानमंत्री जी का नाम बदल देना चाहिए. क्योंकि अब उनके नाम पर लोग वोट नहीं दे रहे हैं. हालांकि ट्वीट पर कुछ यूजर्स ने केजरीवाल का भी समर्थन किया.

उधर नॉर्थ एमसीडी के मेयर आदेश गुप्ता ने कहा कि कई प्रस्ताव आए हैं. नामकरण की एक प्रक्रिया है. सदिन की बैठक में ही निर्णय होता है. उन्होंने कहा कि इस मुद्दे पर हम किसी तरह का विवाद नहीं चाहते. ऐसी कई जगहें हैं, जहां का नाम अटल जी पर रखा जा सकता है. मेयर के इस बयान से कहा जा रहा है कि विवाद पैदा होने के कारण नॉर्थ एमसीडी बैकफुट पर आती दिख रही है.
