Bihar verdict a referendum on Modi: Arvind Kejriwal

New Delhi: The BJP-led coalition’s defeat in Bihar was a referendum on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s working style, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Sunday.

“The results are a referendum on the work and working style of Modi,” the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader told the media here.

He also said that the sweeping win by the ruling Janata Dal-United (JD-U) and its allies RJD and Congress had shattered the “arrogance” and “self pride” of Modi and BJP president Amit Shah.

“The Bihar results have proved that people do not approve of the politics of hatred.

“An atmosphere of intolerance had enveloped the entire country. I am hopeful that all this will stop and the politics of affection will start.”

After congratulating his Bihar counterpart and JD-U leader Nitish Kumar on the “historic victory”, Kejriwal referred to the rising prices of food items.

“The people of this country want that Modi should stop touring foreign countries and work in India.”

Kejriwal, who has been having a running feud with the central government, had come out in support of Nitish Kumar ahead of and during the staggered Bihar election that ended on November 5.

Kejriwal, whose AAP routed the BJP in Delhi assembly elections in February, hoped the Bihar outcome would bring an end to the “illegal” and “unconstitutional” interference by the central government in Delhi.

BJP President Amit Shah on Sunday said that the controversial Citizenship (Amendment) Bill was “very necessary” and added that the government was working on building a consensus with stakeholders in the northeast.

Addressing the media here, Amit Shah also said that the government had brought the bill after much thought and Home Minister Rajnath Singh was holding consultations with various people to address the opposition to the issue.

“There are two sides of a coin. There are decisions that some like and some don’t… The fate of huge number of refugees can’t be kept hanging in the balance and we are firm on it,” he said.

Asked what would be the BJP’s stand if suggestions come to withdraw the Bill as it has created unrest in the entire northeast, Amit Shah said: “Home Minister is holding discussions with political parties. Discussion with some parties have already taken place. If consensus emerges, we will definitely move ahead but the Citizenship Bill is highly necessary for the country.”

The Bill seeks to grant Indian citizenship to Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis and Christians from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan who entered India before December 31, 2014.
