New Delhi, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday called for a “working arrangement” with Prime Minister Narendra Modi as both lived in the same city.

“I accept the AAP government has major differences with the central government but there must be some working arrangement between the PM and the CM,” Kejriwal said in his first Independence Day speech as the chief minister at the packed Chhatrasal Stadium.
Kejriwal continued to speak even as heavy rains lashed the venue, where hundreds of people from students to government officers had gathered to hear him.
“As both the chief minister of Delhi and the prime minister of the country live in the national capital, there should be a working arrangement between them for the welfare of the city and the people residing here,” the Aam Aadmi Party leader said.
This is why, he said, he tried to meet Modi but failed. “I tried to meet the prime minister over the issue but could not meet. I will again try to meet him.”
Major differences have cropped up between the Delhi and the central governments since Kejriwal took power. Because of Delhi’s unique status, the city government enjoys limited powers.
This has turned into a bone of contention between the Delhi government and Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung, a central government appointee. Delhi Police reports to Jung, not to Kejriwal.

Kejriwal used the occasion to pay homage to those who laid down their lives for the country’s freedom.He said transparent and honest politics would be the best way to honour the martyrs.

“They made the supreme sacrifice by laying their lives for the nation. Was their dream of free India accomplished? India has progressed but the dreams of our freedom fighters and martyrs are yet to be fulfilled. For this we need transparent and honest politics.
“We were the first who came with the honest and transparent politics. So we got such a huge mandate,” he said, referring to the sweeping victory of the AAP in the February assembly election. “We connected the politics with patriotism.”

A few months back, the UN as well has crowned him with the Champions of the Earth, the highest environmental honor.

Many will not disagree that the PM Modi is fairly unpopular among a certain popular elite within the country. However, he has earned an immeasurable number of admirers outside the country. The fact why he is an eyesore for certain groups of people and celebrities while they are bowled over and ever supportive of specific dull-witted and inexperienced leaders is something very weird and contrasting. This phenomenon defies the long-held assumption that “education” makes one rational and free from the psychological shortfall. Nevertheless, PM Modi is least bothered what his smart detractors think and do against him.  He hardly wishes evil upon anyone. He has multiple of reasons to stay buoyed and cheery. The flood of praises coming from outside the country has always swelled PM Modi’s chest. Therefore, even in the foreign soil he goes, without a hitch, shouting at full throttle —‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’.  

Truly, it’s totally wrong to ignore many achievements associated with PM Modi. Yes, he has been chosen to be honored with the highest civilian award – Order of Zayed by the UAE government.  Not just that, the countries like Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan and Palestine also have come forward to honor the Indian PM with their respective highest awards. A few months back, the UN as well has crowned him with the Champions of the Earth, the highest environmental honor. His unfaltering dedication and devotion to execute formulated policies and planes have yielded positive results, though some section of powerful people try to undermine and demean them all.

Modi government has been able to pull off many thorny external affairs and issues too quickly.

What is most attractive in PM Modi is that he is smartly clever to strike the personal kinship with any individual foreign leaders and diplomats. Yes, due to his personal touch and warmth, the Modi government has been able to pull off many thorny external affairs and issues too quickly. Of course, this is doubtlessly praiseworthy. Yes, good truths should be not suppressed and falsehood should not be exaggerated.

However, a very strange vibe is noticed in the country. It is nothing but an unenthusiastic silence maintained by the popular media when Modi receives some accolades and appreciation. Many choose not to mention it at all, not even as news-item. This all makes everything all the more conspicuous. Well, this, in fact, only prompts the swarm of netizens to be more active in social media, their battlefields. They are seen furiously vocal. The ranting, raving, and name-calling against the backdrop of the importance given to a certain class of leaders make the situation less pleasant and logical. Not just that people in the social media are quick to throw up contrasting examples citing how media goes gaga over a “less intelligent lot” while keeping deafening silence over things that bring glory and fame to the nation. This is doubtlessly a bizarre development. This way the detractors or opponents always run the risk of losing their own integrity.

A business done by sacrificing integrity ends up in disaster. Opposition to ideas and political parties is always welcome, which is democratic, but the biased attitude against the “truth” and positivity can only dilute the sanctity of the enterprise and professionalism. As concerned citizens, should we not first want that the light of glory and joy dispel the gloom of darkness and despair in the country? Let’s not waste our precious life by struggling to call the untruth as truth and vice versa. This exercise only contributes to polluting our mindset and the country becomes less peaceful and more vulnerable.
