Delhi Elections 2015 and AAP

By Newsgram Staff Writer

Speaking at the Delhi Assembly today, AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal lashed out at BJP for playing petty political games and depriving Delhi of water.

He said that if there is going to be a water scarcity in Delhi because of political reasons in Haryana, then everyone will suffer, not just the public. The CM made it clear that VIP areas will suffer too, though supply will be maintained at the residences of the Prime Minister and President.

Further challenging the central government, Kejriwal said, ‘I want to say that if MCD is not working; let BJP resign & AAP will turn MCD  profitable within a year.’

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.
