This travesty of people’s rights is abhorrent as we celebrate the 75th anniversary of India’s independence,” the AAP leader said during his TV appearance.
“Loans and taxes to the tune of Rs 10 lakh crores levied from government funds by friendly companies are waived, but if someone uses the same fund to provide free education and health to citizens, it is called “revaried”. Is it a crime to raise the standard of living of our fellow citizens? ” He stated.
The Delhi CM also cited examples of a few countries where basic health and education are taken care of by their governments
“Countries like Denmark, Canada, Norway and Spain provide their citizens with quality and free facilities, from education to health, but never call it gifts or revaris. These countries are not compromising the government’s pleasure in forgoing huge loans from their corporate friends,” he added.
Kejriwal’s remarks targeted the BJP-led regime in the Center without taking its name.
