Special Correspondent, New Delhi:
There has been a new political and legal debate about whether basic services like electricity, water, education and health should be provided free of cost to the common people. After Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s statement of ‘free ki rewari’, there is a lot of politics on this issue. In the same episode, on Monday, without naming any particular party, government or leader, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal attacked the central government and BJP fiercely in gestures. Criticizing the free facilities as ‘free ki rewari’, the CM also tried to create a new definition of nationalism. He also raised questions about the loan waiver of capitalists.
Arvind Kejriwal said that such an atmosphere is being created for some days that the facilities provided to the common people should be stopped or withdrawn from the government, because it is causing a lot of loss to the governments. Some are using words like ‘free bee’ for this, while some are calling them ‘free ki rewari’. In the 75th year of independence, when we all should plan together that how all the schools in the country should become good, children should get free education and good health services to the people, instead of these facilities being closed. Is. Such an environment is being created, as it is a crime to provide free electricity and water to the common people and these facilities should be available only to the ministers.

Without naming anyone, the CM said that these people waived off the loans of a few people of the country worth Rs 10 lakh crore. It is being said that many of them were his best friends. No one is talking about him. These people imposed tax on even food items, but waived off the tax of a few people. Giving the example of all the developed countries of the world, he said that in these countries, school children are given free good education, people are given free good health facilities and free electricity. Unemployment allowance is also given till the job is not found. These countries did not become rich by waiving off the loans and taxes of the rich, but by giving good facilities to their people. There they are not called ‘free ki rewari’.
On the occasion of 75th anniversary of independence, I demand on behalf of 130 crore countrymen that free good education should be arranged for every child in this country. Those who call it free rewari are ‘traitors of the country’. I demand that every person of the country should get good treatment free of cost. 300 units of electricity should be free for every family. Until someone gets employment, he should get unemployment allowance.
