New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday appealed to students of Delhi University to start honest politics in the coming Delhi University Students Union (DUSU) polls. Interacting with students at the Aam Aadmi Party’s song and dance show “DURock” at Talkatora indoor stadium, Kejriwal said: “People of Delhi gave us a historic mandate by giving us 67 out of 70 seats. Delhi people have started honest politics in this country. We have started a trend of clean politics at the state level, now it is your responsibility to start honest student politics in the Delhi University elections.” “We all know how corruption and muscle power is there in student politics. Everyone know crores of rupees are spent during students’ union elections.

But I have full faith that the beginning of clean and honest student politics will start from Delhi University,” he said. The AAP organised the rock concert to woo freshers of Delhi University before the students’ union elections. Kejriwal further said: “We will make Delhi the first free Wi-Fi zone in the country. At first, we will provide this facility in colleges of Delhi University. For this, we are making constant efforts. “Celebrities like Vishal Dadlani, Raghu Ram, Jasleen Royal and Shilpa Rao, and music band Astitva performed at the event. The rock concert was attended by Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia and AAP’s Delhi convener Dilip Pandey.

Kejriwal’s address held significance as the AAP’s student wing CYSS is making its debut in the DUSU polls slated to be held on September 11. Kejriwal further said: “The AAP government’s education loan scheme to students of Delhi will be implemented from this month. The first cheques in this connection will be distributed on September 8.” “Around 70 percent corruption has been abolished. We promise to make Delhi the first corruption free state of the country. Similarly, we will bring Delhi University among the top 100 universities of the world,” he said. The CYSS has fielded Garima Rana, Rahul Raj Aryan, Kuldeep Bidhuri and Hitanshi Chauhan for the DUSU polls. All four candidates also interacted with the students.

Modi government betrayed farmers: Kejriwal.

The Modi government has stabbed farmers in the back by telling the Supreme Court that it cannot implement recommendations of the M.S. Swaminathan Commission which the BJP promised to do so in 2014, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Friday.

Addressing a farmers rally here at Jantar Mantar, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader also slammed the Centre’s crop insurance scheme as a “fraud” and demanded that it be scrapped.

“Soldiers at the borders and farmers at thier farms are in distress. It’s a sad state of affairs. The BJP has dishonoured the promises it made in 2014,” Arvind Kejriwal said.

Thousands of farmers from across the country marched from Ramlila Maidan to Jantar Mantar in the heart of the capital seeking loan waiver and higher crop prices and warning political parties not to ignore their plight.

Reminding the BJP’s promise vis-a-vis the Swaminathan Commission, Kejriwal accused the ruling party of going back on its election promise.

“They have filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court and said they can’t implement it. There can’t be a greater betrayal than this. This government has stabbed farmers in the back,” he said, asking the government to take back the affidavit.

He warned that if it failed to do so, farmers would teach the saffron party a lesson in the 2019 elections.

Demanding loan waiver for farmers, he also said that they must get fair price for their produce.

“They are not begging but fighting for their rights. Once their loans are waived, they won’t demand it again. The government should also buy the farmers’ produce at appropriate price.”

He blasted the government’s crop insurance scheme.

“This is not an insurance scheme but it is BJP’s ‘kisan daka yojna’ (plunder farmers scheme). This must go and the money paid by farmers be returned. Instead, the government should start a compensation scheme for farmers.”

The Modi government was worried more about Ambanis and Adanis, he alleged. (IANS)
