Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is currently campaigning very hard for the upcoming polls of the Municipal Corporation of Delhi. Fresh from a massive defeat in Punjab and Goa, the AAP leader is desperately looking for a win to boost the morale of his party members. During one of his programmes on Saturday, while highlighting AAP’s agenda for the Delhi municipalities, people started to chant PM Modi’s name. This irked Kejriwal greatly and he lashed out at them.
Kejriwal said, “If by shouting PM’s name, demands are met, even I am willing to say, ‘Modi, Modi'”. He continued his diatribe saying, “‘Modi, Modi’ karne se pet nahi bharta. (Shouting PM’s name will not ensure square meals for you.)” He even said some people had gone mad in their love for Modi.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday urged the Election Commission to investigate cases of “faulty” EVMs and ascertain if their software can be tweaked “in favour of the BJP”. Kejriwal met Chief Election Commissioner Nasim Zaidi and also demanded ballot papers be reintroduced in the country. The Election Commission’s claim that EVMs cannot be tampered with is completly “wrong”, Kejriwal asserted. The CM’s remark comes a day after some media reports suggested that Voter-verifiable Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) machine was dispensing slips of BJP symbol only, irrespective of the button pressed, during a demonstration exercise in Bhind, Madhya Pradesh.
