Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has claimed that he and his party leaders are being pressurised to join the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and stated he will never ally with the saffron party.
Addressing a gathering during a foundation stone laying ceremony of a new school in Rohini, the Delhi CM said, “No matter what conspiracy they hatch, nothing is going to happen. I also am standing firm against them… They ask us to join BJP saying they’ll spare us. I said I would not join the BJP… We are doing nothing wrong,” Kejriwal said.
In his speech at the event, Kejriwal also alleged that the BJP-headed Centre only spends 4 per cent of the national budget on schools and hospitals as opposed to the Delhi government spending 40 per cent of its budget every year on these. The Delhi Chief Minister also mentioned his jailed AAP colleagues Manish Sisodia and Satyendra Jain.
The Delhi chief minister also criticised the Narendra Modi government over budget allotment for schools and hospitals claiming the Centre has allocated only 4 per cent of the Union budget on education and medical sector.
The AAP chief further asked the people present there to continue showering him with their love and blessings, adding that he does not wish to have “anything else”.
