New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has hit back at PM Modi for his statement related to Revdi culture i.e. free facilities provided by the governments. Kejriwal questioned that to give facilities like free education, health and electricity to common citizens is to distribute revdis. Earlier, during the inauguration of Bundelkhand Expressway on Saturday, PM Modi had targeted the Revdi culture i.e. free facilities by the governments.
Kejriwal said that if we are giving good education to 18 lakh children in government schools. For the first time in history, the result of 99 percent has come. In the last few years, close to four lakh children have moved from private schools to government schools. Gagan, a child of Delhi’s government school, has been selected in IITM, Dhanbad today. Delhi’s government hospitals have been made wonderful. Mohalla clinics are discussed all over the world. Treatment of every man is free. Even if it is 50 lakhs. So are we distributing ravadis?
CM Arvind Kejriwal said that free treatment in hospitals is wrong? All medical tests are done free of cost in Delhi. Tell me what have we done wrong? I am laying the foundation of the country, I am not distributing Revdi for free. Earlier the condition of government schools was bad. Today the children of the poor are passing NEET, JEE. We have changed the future of thousands of children. I am giving free education to the children. Is it wrong to give free education in government schools?
Free education and treatment is not called free ki revdi
He said that to give free and good education to the children of our country and to provide good and free treatment to the people, it is not called distributing free rewari. We are laying the foundation of a developed and glorious India. This work should have been done 75 years ago. CM Kejriwal said that 18 lakh children study in Delhi’s government schools. The fleet of government schools across the country was poor, similar to the condition of government schools in Delhi. The future of 18 lakh children was ruined. If we fix the future of these children today, what crime am I committing?
Arvind Kejriwal said that what are these free ki revdi, I will tell you. A company took loan from many banks and ate money. The bank went bankrupt and that company donated crores of rupees to a political party and the government did not take any action against that company. This is a free revdi. We have saved the lives of 13 thousand people with the angel scheme, ask them if this is a free revdi. Your ministers get electricity for free. If we give electricity to the people for free, then what is this revdi? We are teaching yoga to 17 thousand people for free. About 45 thousand elders have done free pilgrimage, it is a virtue, but they are telling me that he is distributing Revdi for free.
Let us tell you that during the inauguration of Bundelkhand Expressway, PM Modi said that efforts are being made to bring the culture of collecting votes by distributing free revdi in our country. This Revdi culture is very dangerous for the development of the country. The people of the country have to be very careful with this Revdi culture. On this statement of PM, the CM of Delhi has responded.
