AAP chief using freebies for political goals: BJP
The BJP on Friday accused the Aam Aadmi Party of using the freebies to fulfill the political ambitions of Arvind Kejriwal.
Addressing a press conference in New Delhi, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra made a distinction between the Centre’s welfare measures and “freedom politics”, saying the Narendra Modi government’s policies were aimed at helping people stand on their feet.
“Freebies are not for the poor. Their aim is to grab power. There is no long-term benefit of freebies. It has only one short-term advantage and that is to get power in the hands of Arvind Kejriwal. This is bait to trap people to fulfill the ambitions of Kejriwal and AAP.
Commenting on the RJD-JD(U), Patra said it would not be an exaggeration to say that “Jungle Raj has returned to Bihar”. He cited several alleged cases of rape, murder and robbery to make his point.
Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav said: “Jungle raj is at the centre, where ministers are afraid to even shout. Totally dictatorial. And up for debate, why don’t we pick up the NCRB data?
