New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday accused Modi of behaving like a Pakistani Prime Minister to subvert India’s federal structure.
Kejriwal said: “It is unfortunate that the Chief Minister and thousands of people from Andhra have to demonstrate here for special status for the state. This poses a big question on the country’s federal structure.”
The Delhi chief minister said:“The PM at least thrice publicly declared he would give special status to Andhra. He is world famous for lying. Whatever he says, he never fulfills. Even (BJP chief) Amit Shah says that whatever they say is nothing but ‘jumla’ (fake promise).”
Attacking Modi over the CBI’s showdown with West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, Kejriwal accused him of behaving like a Pakistani Prime Minister.
He has sent 40 CBI officers to arrest Kolkata Police Commissioner and send a message to the police and bureaucracy in all states that they should not be loyal to state governments but to the Centre.
Kejriwal called it a conspiracy and added that had he succeeded the federal structure of the country would have collapsed.
The Delhi chief minister said he salutes Mamata Banerjee for the way she drove out those 40 CBI officers.
