(Photo: IANS)New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal took a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi while discussing the arrest of his former Law Minister Jitender Singh Tomar today.
Speaking after BJP created a commotion in the Delhi assembly over Tomar’s arrest, Kejriwal compared the development with the demands now being raised for External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj’s resignation.

The Prime Minister, Kejriwal said, should take a cue from Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).

Saying Tomar had misled him over the genuineness of his allegedly fake law degree, Kejriwal said Modi too had been misled by his cabinet colleagues.

“His cabinet ministers have also misled him.He should remove Sushma Swaraj from the cabinet,” the Chief Minister said.

When allegations were first hurled at Tomar, Kejriwal said he felt that the then Law Minister had done no wrong.

“But after he (Tomar) was arrested and sent to police custody, it seems to me that I was kept in the dark (by him).”

His remark came amid high drama when Bharatiya Janata Party legislator O.P. Sharma rushed towards Kejriwal and heckled him. He was marshalled out of the house.

Today was the first day of the budget session. (IANS)

The BJP-led Union government is keen on giving equal opportunities to women in the society and wants to support them at every stage, whether they want to be a homemaker, job seeker or job creator, added the PM in the 40-minute audio-video interaction.

An estimated nine crore women across the country have benefitted from the Pradhan Mantri Mudra Yojana (PMMY) scheme, which provides loans for small and micro enterprises, he said.

Nearly Rs 12 crore worth loans have been given out under the PMMY scheme, of which more than 70 per cent beneficiaries were women, the Prime Minister said.

Programmes like Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana, which provides LPG gas to women from below poverty line (BPL) households, have also benefitted several women, he added.

Modi highlighted that the central government had increased the paid maternity leave from the earlier 12 weeks to 26 weeks for women in the organised sector.

“When the contribution of women in the country increases, the development of the country is ensured,” said Modi. (IANS)
