New Delhi: The Modi government is the most corrupt India has ever had since independence, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Monday, as he made a confidence motion in the Delhi Assembly to prove he enjoys a stable legislative majority.
Attacking Prime Minister Narendra Modi without taking his name, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader told the House: “From the ramparts of the Red Fort he talked about fighting corruption but the BJP tried to purchase AAP MLAs. This is their fight against corruption.”
“I am bringing a Confidence Motion to show that BJP’s ‘Operation Lotus’ failed in Delhi. The BJP could not purchase even a single MLA from AAP despite an offer of Rs 20 crores for each MLA.”
Kejriwal alleged that the current Central government was the most corrupt government since India’s independence.
People all over the country are very worried about inflation, he said, but the BJP has been increasing taxes on everything. Taxes have been imposed on milk, curd, flour, and buttermilk.
In Gujarat, a tax was imposed on the Garba dance which is performed during the Navratri celebration, Kejriwal added.
Kejriwal alleged that BJP brought down the governments of Maharashtra, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Goa, and others. Now the government of Jharkhand was about to be demolished.
He said the Centre heaps a tax burden on the people and uses the money thus generated to topple state governments held by other parties, he said. So, if fuel prices are expensive, then one must understand that some state government is going to fall, he said.
