J P Nadda accuses Arvind Kejriwal of insulting the people of Poorvanchal

NEW DELHI: BJP President accused the Chief Minister of Delhi on Sunday Arvind Kejriwal of insulting the people of the region and wondered if he can do something good when he cannot respect them.

In her tweets addressed to the leader of the AAP, Nadda posted a short video of Kejriwal, who is heard to say that poor people came to Delhi spending 500 rupees and taking advantage of more than 5 lakh rupees here at no cost.

The BJP has often cited these comments to accuse Kejriwal of insulting migrants but the AAP has asserted that the chief minister was making a point about the quality of medical facilities being offered in the national capital.

Nadda said that poorvanchal people have played an important role in the development of Delhi, but Kejriwal does not realize it.

The way you have often insulted the poorvanchal brothers and sisters is unfit for a prime minister, he said.

The BJP president also attacked Kejriwal over the issue of drinking water, saying the AAP leaders has been making the promise of delivering piped water to every household since 2014 and then claimed in 2019 that it will take another five years.
