Lashing out at the Centre, Arvind Kejriwal blamed the government for waiving Rs 10 lakh crore of loans and Rs 5 lakh crore of taxes on super rich people and their companies. However, Kejriwal hit out at the government for overtaxing the poor.

When the poor buy wheat and rice from the market, even the poorest person or beggar has to pay tax. “What was the condition of the central government when it was time to impose a tax on the poorest of the poor?” Arvind Kejriwal questioned.

Referring to the Agnipath defence recruitment scheme, the reduction in states’ share of central taxes, the Goods and Services Tax (GST) imposed on food items, and the 25 per cent cut in the MNREGA fund, Arvind Kejriwal questioned where all the money was going.

He said the Centre collects a huge amount of taxes, including Rs 3.5 lakh per annum on petrol and diesel, and was still against providing the people of the country free education, healthcare and other facilities.
