On Monday, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said if there is a hung assembly in Uttar Pradesh, then AAP will enter into a post-poll alliance to keep the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) out of power in the state.
He said, “All surveys are indicating towards a hung assembly in the state. In such a situation, we will form an alliance to keep the BJP out of the government if needed. We will fulfil promises of free 24-hour electricity and better schools and hospitals even by supporting other parties against BJP in case of a hung assembly.”
On Monday, Kejriwal began his two-day Uttar Pradesh tour to support his party candidates in the ongoing assembly polls. Kejriwal visited Lucknow and Barabanki while Prayagraj and Gorakhpur were also on his schedule.
The Delhi CM said that if the people of UP want Delhi like government schools and hospitals, they all must vote for AAP without worrying about how many seats it will win in the election.
Kejriwal accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra of calling him a terrorist.
He also accused that despite ruling the country for years, these parties did not have a single concrete work to talk about, which is why they are calling him a terrorist.
Regarding the recent allegations on him by Kumar Vishwas, Kejriwal said that the whole story is made up of Kumar Vishwas’s dream and because only he is non-corrupt, everyone is now trying to frame him.
On a lighter tone, he recited a famous dialogue from the film Sholay, “When someone commits corruption for 100 miles, mother says just sleep, otherwise, Kejriwal will come,” he said.
While also attacking the opposition parties, Kejriwal said, both the BJP and the Congress have been wiped out from Delhi, and if his party is given a chance, all other parties will be wiped out from UP also.
Three out of the seven phases of UP Assembly elections have already been completed. The voting for the remaining phases will happen on 23rd February, 27th February, 3rd March and 7th March. The counting of votes will take place on 10th March.
