New Delhi: Delhi Prime Minister Arvind Kejriwal attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday, saying efforts are being made to destroy the country under his leadership. In a speech to the Delhi Assembly, he also accused Deputy Governor VK Saxena of obstructing the work of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP)-led government.
Kejriwal said: “I want to tell the BJP people that under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, efforts are underway to destroy the country. Those who want to destroy the country should be in the BJP and those who want to save the country should leave the BJP.”
The uproar started in the Assembly when Kejriwal spoke about the Prime Minister. Referring to Rahul Gandhi’s disqualification from the Lok Sabha, Kejriwal took aim at the central government, saying that “they are afraid.” Gandhi has been disqualified from the Lok Sabha after being found guilty and sentenced in a criminal libel case. Kejriwal asked Lieutenant Governor Saxena to work with the government for the development of Delhi.

Kejriwal said: “I want to tell the lieutenant governor that he has come from Gujarat. You are our guest. I don’t think he even knew the names of the streets in Delhi. But we don’t want a fight. We want to work together. What will future generations say? They were fighting.”
He said: “We have to provide door-to-door sewerage connections, buy new buses, improve the traffic situation… let’s work together.” The Chief Minister said: “We will work with you. This is not a war between India and Pakistan. When the Chief Minister and the Lieutenant Governor start working together, it will really be a dual-engine government.
