Chandigarh: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has made a scathing attack on Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi, by calling him ‘Fake Kejriwal’, for copying his pre-election promises and policies.
He accused the Punjab CM of copying his pre-election promises. “There is a fake Kejriwal roaming around. Whatever I promise in Punjab, he does the same after 2 days. He does no work, he is a fake,” said the Delhi Chief Minister while announcing a massive cash transfer scheme to a room full of women in the Moga district of Punjab.
“I announced Mohalla Clinics in Punjab. Fake Kejriwal said the same thing but didn’t make even one. I will be meeting auto unions, this was planned 10 days in advance, but he went today. Darna accha hai (It’s good to be afraid),” he said, taking a swipe at Mr Channi. The Punjab CM had met auto-rickshaw drivers this morning and announced waiver of all pending challans for them. He also announced that new registration certificates will be issued soon to them for “preventing their harassment”.
Highlighting the pre-election promises made by the Kejriwal led-AAP government, the Delhi CM assures of Rs 1000 financial assistance to all women in Punjab who are 18 years of age. Calling it the “biggest such scheme in the world”, he added that this would make every woman feel financially independent and they would not have to go through the shame of having to ask for money from male members of their families.
