AAP Senior Leader and Delhi Minister Ms. Atishi slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his misuse of government investigative agencies to intimidate and threaten opposition leaders. She held a press conference on Saturday, highlighting the unjustified summoning of Shri Arvind Kejriwal by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). Ms. Atishi said that the PM is trying to suppress the voice of Shri Arvind Kejriwal, who is the only political leader in the country raising his voice against the Prime Minister and his government’s failures.
Ms. Atishi criticised the central government for not being able to provide any evidence of corruption worth a single penny against any of the AAP leaders. “Despite claiming corruption worth thousands of crores, the central government’s investigative agencies have failed to find any evidence to support their claims,” she said. She raised the question of why Shri Arvind Kejriwal has been summoned by the investigating agency if there is no evidence against him.
The Delhi Cabinet Minister emphasised that this summon to Shri Arvind Kejriwal by CBI is an attempt to intimidate him and suppress his voice because he is highlighting the failures of the Modi government. She stated that the government is trying to suppress the only political leader in the country who is raising his voice against the Prime Minister and his government.
The AAP leader pointed out that under the tenure of PM Narendra Modi, the rate of inflation has gone off the boundaries for the common man. Today, the prices of petrol, diesel, and LPG have been hiked beyond limits, and the price of LPG in India is the highest in the world. She questioned how a common man would run his household under these conditions.
She further highlighted that in the past six years, petrol prices in the country have increased by 100%, while health facilities are crumbling across the country. There are no hospitals for people or schools for children and colleges for youth. The youth passing out of college do not have employment, and nearly 5 crore youth in the country are unemployed. She also mentioned that 22 crore people are malnourished in the country. This is what the Modi government has given to the people of this country.
Ms. Atishi said, “Central government is favoring the PM’s close friends and ensuring that they get richer each day. The net worth of PM Modi’s special friends was Rs 60,000 crores in 2014, which has now increased to Rs 11,00,000 crores. The Prime Minister is trying to silence Shri Arvind Kejriwal because he raised his voice against this corruption. The PM is trying to silence him because he questioned the investment of Rs 50,000 crores of LIC in his friend’s company, which sank in just 50 days.”
She concluded by saying that the AAP will continue to fight against corruption for the people of the country, even if the BJP puts them in jail by misusing government agencies CBI-ED or hangs them. She stated that they would continue to raise the voice of the people against inflation and corruption of the PM till their last breath.
