New Delhi, April 1 (Delhi Crown): Even as the saga of hurling accusations and counter-accusations between the Delhi units of the BJP and the AAP over Kashmiri Pandits refuses to die down, the Delhi BJP president Adesh Gupta on Friday alleged that Kejriwal government was “asking for” Rs 40-50 lakhs from Kashmiri Pandits for providing power connections at their shops in MCD and NDMC areas.
These shops had been allotted to Kashmiri Pandits by the MCD and NDMC.
“While all Kashmiri Hindus living in Delhi are now describing the pain and plight that they went through, but despite living in the capital for so long the Kejriwal government refuses to even consider them as migrants, not giving them jobs,” said Gupta while addressing a protest demonstration at Jantar Mantar.
The protest was organised by the “Kashmiri Pandits Federation” against the “humiliating” remarks by CM Kejriwal in Delhi Assembly last month.
Gupta further said – “While the MCD and the NDMC had given permission to Kashmiri Pandits to open shops, till date they have not got power connection for the same as in the name of providing power connections the Kejriwal government is asking for Rs 40-50 lakhs.”
The Delhi BJP chief further stated that the kind of language Kejriwal used against Hindus showed his “mental bankruptcy”.
“In past seven years the development that took place in Kashmir under the Narender Modi government has not happened even in over 60 years of country’s independence,” added Adesh Gupta.
He also said that the way CM Kejriwal refused to make “The Kashmir Files” movie tax-free in Delhi showed his “mindset” and the kind of politics he plays.
