Want to make India number one country in the world: Kejriwal

Nagpur: Delhi Chief Minister and AAP national convener Arvind Kejriwal said his party would not enter into an alliance with other political parties as it intended to partner with 130 crore people of this country.

Speaking on ‘AAP and its role in 2024 Lok Sabha elections’ as part of a lecture series organized to mark the golden jubilee of the Nagpur edition of Lokmat, Kejriwal also said that he did not want to defeat anyone in politics but sought to make India the number one country in the world.

“Many people ask me with whom will we do a national alliance. I do not know how to do politics. I don’t understand alliances of 10 and 20 parties to defeat anyone. I don’t want to defeat anyone, I want the country to win. I will only enter into an alliance with 130 crore people of the country to make India number one in the world,” he said.

Without naming the BJP, the Delhi chief minister said a “huge party” at present was vociferously supporting hooliganism, engineering riots, and taking out welcome processions for rapists.

“The country cannot progress with this type of hooliganism. If you want hooliganism and riots you can go with them, but if you want to progress, schools and hospitals you can come with me. Let us make an alliance of 130 crore common people,” he asserted.

Kejriwal said that his party’s focus was not on the 2024 Lok Sabha polls but on working for the country, adding that people like him had come after leaving their careers to serve the country.

Countering the charge of indulging in freebie politics, the Delhi chief minister said that money meant for public welfare used to be consumed by corruption. By stopping corruption and saving money, his government was giving people free electricity and other amenities.
