Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal said that poverty will be eradicated not by giving speeches but by giving education. Attacking the central government, he said that the way agencies like CBI, ED have been left against me, it seems that I am the biggest terrorist of the country. Kejriwal had come to lay the foundation stone of a school in Palam area of Dwarka, Delhi.
In the program, Arvind Kejriwal said that earlier there was garbage lying in this area, but now there will be no garbage here but children and the nation will be built, a 3 storey grand school will be built here, which will have 9 labs, now Physics, Chemistry and Computer. Lab will vary. Big and expensive private schools of Delhi do not have lifts but this government school will have 3 lifts, the most wonderful government school of entire Delhi will be built in Palam. A large number of people are gathering for the foundation stone laying ceremony of the school. This had never happened before. Earlier, people had no hope that their children would get a future in a government school. Today people have gathered here with a hope, now all the dreams of the poor children will be fulfilled, schools are being built on such a large scale.
…then no one would be poor
Arvind Kejriwal further said that I think this should have happened in 1950. If such wonderful schools had been built 75 years ago when the country became independent, not a single person in our country would have been poor. If children are educated then poverty will be eradicated in one generation, if the son of a poor person earning Rs 10,000 becomes a computer engineer and starts bringing home Rs 3 lakh per month, will poverty be eradicated or not? Poverty can be eradicated only through education, poverty will not be eradicated by giving speeches. If good arrangements are made for the education of our children across the country, then poverty can be eliminated from the entire country in a single generation i.e. in 10 to 15 years.
Kejriwal lashed out at the central government
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said that I was a small man, used to roam in the slums of the beautiful city, where the people of Delhi picked me up from there and made me sit, even in the next 7 births, I will not be able to forget the gratitude of the love of the people of Delhi. Whatever work they stop me from doing, I will get it done by holding my feet and folding my hands. To stop us, they registered so many cases, sometimes ED case and sometimes CBI case. You must have seen on television that sometimes Arvind Kejriwal gets an ED notice, sometimes a CBI notice comes, I don't even understand, it seems that I am the biggest terrorist of the country.
Arvind Kejriwal further said that it is written in Geeta that God has sent every human being on earth for some purpose or the other. God has sent them to earth to make false cases and put them in jail and to give notices, has sent me to earth to arrange water to build your schools, I have no grudge against them, let them do their work. I will do it. Arvind Kejriwal further said that they are saying that Manish Sisodia is a thief, whereas Manish Sisodia built excellent schools for the poor children of Delhi, wherever he has a government, be it Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat or Uttar Pradesh, there are government schools there. Are you closing schools? Is he a thief who provides excellent education to the children of the poor, or is he a thief who closes the schools of the poor?
