ArvindKejriwal4The BJP on Friday said Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal doesn’t know how to govern and is only interested in petty politics.

Satish Upadhyay, president of the party’s Delhi unit, said the central government has given funds to the Delhi government to pay the salaries of the sanitation workers, who are on a strike over its non-payment. Consequently, huge piles of garbage have been dumped on many roads in east Delhi, causing immense discomfort to citizens.

“The central government has already given you money. Stop dragging Prime Minister (Narendra) Modi into it… stop playing petty politics,” Upadhyay said at a press conference here.

The Bharatiya Janata Party leader said that Kejriwal was not serious about solving problems of the people and that he was interested in blame game only. “You (Kejriwal) don’t know how to govern. You have been busy fighting ever since you took over (as chief minister),” he said. Earlier in the day, the ruling Aam Aadmi Party said that BJP was politicising the issue of the striking sanitation workers as it was the BJP which rules the civic bodies in the city.

The Congress has accused both the AAP and the BJP for the mess in Delhi with party vice president Rahul Gandhi extending full support to the workers.

Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Monday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his government of being anti-Dalit and said his party will defeat the BJP in 2019 Lok Sabha elections. Gandhi, who led his party’s day-long fast at Rajghat to highlight atrocities against Dalits and other communities, said party workers were protesting against an ideology, a way of thinking.

Rahul Gandhi is against Modi and his rule.

“The atmosphere that has been created in the country, it is due to the ideology of the BJP. BJP’s ideology is to divide the country, crush the Dalits, tribals, minorities. We are against the ideology of the BJP. We are standing against it today, we will stand against it throughout our lives. And we will defeat them in the 2019 elections,” Gandhi told reporters.

Asked about BJP Dalit MPs writing to Modi with their complaints, Gandhi said: “You talk to them in Parliament. They also tell us that Modiji is a casteist person, an anti-Dalit person. He has no place for Dalits in his heart, the whole country knows this. It is not a secret.”

Gandhi attacked BJP President Amit Shah for likening the coming together of opposition parties to “snakes, mongoose, dogs and cats” climbing a tree trunk to save themselves from floods. He said every person in the country was against the BJP.

“Some days back a BJP leader said that opposition members were animals. The truth is that today every person in the country is standing against the government. The approach that this government has against Dalits, tribals, minorities and farmers, we are standing against it,” he said. Gandhi said the country will not accept that Modi government “spreads violence, hatred in the country… We are standing here against this ideology.”
