Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi, Manish Sisodia, hit out at the Bharatiya Janata Party, saying the ruling party leaders were “na aam ke, na Ram ke” (neither good for common men nor for Lord Ram) and that they had embezzled the donation given by lakhs of people for the construction of a grand Ram temple.
He was speaking at the launch of Tiranga Yatra in Ayodhya on Tuesday in which Aam Aadmi Party leaders, including Sisodia, Sanjay Singh and Sabhajeet Singh took part.
Sisodia said the people of Uttar Pradesh would vote AAP to power in the assembly elections in 2022.
“AAP will work taking blessings of Lord Ram and following Lord Ram’s ideals,” he said.
He said only the Arvind Kejriwal government in the country was inspired by the ideals set by Lord Ram.
“The Tiranga Yatra is aimed at dethroning the BJP which always takes sides of those involved in corruption, rioting and robbing public money. AAP’s government in UP will ensure good education, good health facilities, job opportunities and women’s safety if voted to power,” the Delhi deputy chief minister said.
He said AAP had Lord Ram in its heart, in its roots and branches and it had great respect for the Constitution of the country contrary to the BJP which spoke one thing and did another.
During his address to AAP workers at the launch of Tiranga Yatra, Sisodia reminded the BJP about its poll promise to end rule of goons, corruption, double farmers’ income, provide job opportunities and women’s safety.
“None of these promises have been fulfilled during the four-and-a-half year rule of the BJP government in UP,” he said.
Sisodia spoke at length on issues like law and order, spurt in crime, rape and criminal assault on women and girls, embezzlement in donation money, land scam and said the Yogi Adityanath government did not even initiate any legal action in these cases.
“The BJP government is with those who are on the wrong side of law,” he said.
The Delhi deputy chief minister said that farmers were struggling under the BJP rule in UP. He said though the BJP could not double the income of farmers, it did not hesitate in declaring them terrorists and Khalistanis to weaken their agitation.
Speaking on this occasion, AAP leader Sanjay Singh said the people of Ayodhya wanted to know the formula by which the cost of a land of Rs 2 crore increased to Rs 18.50 crore in five minutes.
Singh said the ‘Tiranga’ (Tricolour) gave people the courage to fight against corruption and the Tiranga Yatra was to expose the scams and corruption which took place during the BJP regime.
The Tiranga Yatra started from Gulabbadi and concluded at Gandhi Park in Ayodhya.
