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.

  • Arvind Kejriwal apologised to Bikram Singh Majithia
  • BJP leader says that this apology established himself
  • BJP also alleged that Kejriwal did nothing while state aced so many problems

A day after Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal apologised to former Punjab Minister Bikram Singh Majithia for alleging that he was involved in the drug trade, the BJP Delhi unit on Friday said he has exposed himself as a “liar”.

The BJP also alleged that he was doing nothing even while the people of the national capital were facing a number of issues due to sealing.

Addressing a press conference here, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Delhi unit President Manoj Tiwari said: ” What we have been saying for long has been proved today. He is a liar. He has apologised to Majithia for making false allegations against him.”

“He is on his way to apologise to (Union Finance Minister) Arun Jaitley ji and (Union Transport Minister) Nitin Gadkari ji for making false allegations,” the BJP leader said. Kejriwal is facing defamation cases in court for levelling allegations against Jaitley and Gadkari.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief on Thursday apologised to the Shiromani Akali Dal leader in Punjab for making allegations of involvement in the drug trade, following which the latter said that he will withdraw a defamation suit filed in an Amristar court.

Tiwari, who represents the northeast Delhi constituency in the Lok Sabha, accused Kejriwal of misleading the people over the ongoing sealing drive in the national capital.

BJP MLA Vijender Gupta accused the AAP chief of only rendering “lip service” on the sealing drive and urged the Chief Minister to hold an all-party meeting with the Supreme Court-appointed Monitoring committee overseeing the drive.

“Since December last, Kejriwal is only doing lip service on the issue of sealing drive. He has done nothing to stop it,” Gupta, the Leader of Opposition in the Delhi Assembly, said.

He said that though Lt Governor Anil Baijal cleared the file for notifying 351 roads in the capital on February 8, the matter is still pending. “Why hasn’t he (Kejriwal) notified the 351 roads in the last 45 days?” Gupta asked.

BJP leaders are calling this apology a gimmick.

He also accused Kejriwal of hatching a conspiracy to mislead people by playing the emotional card of apology. Gupta warned the Monitoring Committee members not to act outside the law and said: “If the monitoring committee acts against law, then the BJP will oppose it.”

“We are going to inform the three municipal corporations of Delhi not to follow the commands of the Monitoring Committee if it goes against the law,” he said. “The MCDs should approach the court and also make Kejriwal a party,” the BJP leader added. IANS
