Delhi Chief minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Wednesday that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) should not come to power in the 2024 general election as its policies have destroyed the country and people want change.

The AAP convenor also emphasised that politicians should not fight but instead learn from each other for the growth of the country.

“The people of the country voted for the BJP with lots of hopes in 2014 and 2019, but their policies have destroyed the country, now the country is asking for change and there is an opportunity to bring change in 2024,” Kejriwal said while addressing a public meeting organised by BRS president and Telangana Chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao in Khammam in Telangana.


“BJP has to be uprooted and defeated in the 2024 elections and a government that thinks about the progress of the country and deals with issues such as unemployment, inflation, education and health needs to be elected to power,” Kejriwal said.

Kejriwal called for the cohesive development of the country on the occasion and said: “India will progress only if we stop fighting and start learning from each other.”

“Despite attaining independence 75 years ago, our country has not progressed because of the kind of politicians that we have had. Now some CMs and senior leaders are coming together to discuss the development of the country,” he said.

Kejriwal further said that the Telangana government has started a wonderful initiative to conduct free eye checkups for its residents and AAP will implement this scheme in Punjab and Delhi as well.

“CM K Chandrasekhar Rao had visited Delhi to see our mohalla clinics, and on his return to the state, he implemented a similar initiative under the name Basti Dawakhana. Tamil Nadu CM MK Stalin visited Delhi to see our government schools and he went back to his state and transformed the schools there and called me for the inauguration of these schools,” Kejriwal said.


Kejriwal also used the occasion to criticise the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi for remotely controlling governors in order to harass elected governors.

He said, “The Governor of Tamil Nadu has been troubling MK Stalin, the Governor of Telangana has been troubling KCR, the Governor of Punjab has been troubling Bhagwant Mann and the LG of Delhi has been troubling me. It is not the Governor, but PM Narendra Modi who is troubling everyone.”

“Instead of worrying about issues such as unemployment and inflation, the PM is busy thinking about which politician to bother using CBI-ED and income tax. Our country cannot progress like this,” he said.
