'Paanch Sawal': Why no mention of Northeasterns in AAP's manifesto? BJP asks Arvind Kejriwal
Continuing its attack on Aam Aadmi Party with its seventh set of questions, the Bharatiya Janata Party on Wednesday criticised the former for giving no space to Northeasterns in its manifesto.
New Delhi: Continuing its attack on Aam Aadmi Party with its seventh set of questions, the Bharatiya Janata Party on Wednesday criticised the former for giving no space to Northeasterns in its manifesto.
In a press conference, BJP leader and Union Minister Nirmala Sitharaman asked AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal about his plans on development of Delhi and on the tax-evasion notices given to the donors.
“Both Congress and AAP had criticised us for mentioning North East people as 'immigrants' which we had later accepted as a typo mistake. But, none of them have mentioned even a little para on them in their manifesto,” asked Sitharaman.
She also accused Kejriwal of taking Rs 2 crore donation from somebody whose company was declared tax defaulter by Department of Trade and Tax 10 days before he became CM. “Is this a case of quid quid pro quo for benefits extnded to them during his tenure?” She asked.
Seeking clarification on AAP's slum redevelopment plan, Sitharaman said that AAP manifesto speaks of giving houses instead of jhuggis, but in small print it states‘if it's not possible’.
In her fourth question, Sitharaman asked AAP about its plan for making Delhi a world class city. She further asked AAP to explain its plan on decongesting roads in Delhi.
Earlier, the BJP had posed questions to AAP on its association with Naxals and black money donations.
