What did Arvind Kejriwal say about Modi Government
Addressing a joint press conference with Thackeray, Kejriwal remarked that the BJP neither believes in democracy nor the Supreme Court.
Kejriwal said, “The ordinance on control of services in Delhi means the Modi government doesn’t believe in the Supreme Court. The ordinance implies that how can the Supreme Court give a judgment against us.” Supporting the remarks made by Kejriwal, Thackeray said that the Supreme Court’s order was important for democracy. He said, “We have come together to defeat those against democracy. If we miss the train this time, then there will be no democracy in the country. We have come together to save the country and the Constitution.”
According to the Delhi Chief Minister, the Centre, through the ordinance, took back all the powers given by the Supreme Court.“In a democracy, power should vest in the elected government as it is accountable to people,” said Arvind Kejriwal.
