AAP convener and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal blasted the BJP on Thursday for calling his demand to print images of Lord Ganesha and Goddess Lakshmi on currency notes a "political stunt."
New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convener and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal blasted the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Thursday for calling his demand to print images of Lord Ganesha and Goddess Lakshmi on currency notes a “political stunt,” saying the saffron party should implement it if it believes the action will entice voters.
In a video posted by the AAP’s Twitter account, the AAP leader is seen responding to a reporter’s query about the BJP’s claim that Kejriwal’s most recent demand had “hypocrisy on display” and was made with an eye on the approaching elections in Himachal Pradesh and Gujarat
They put it into effect if they believe that saying this will increase voter turnout.
Despite our greatest efforts, sometimes our efforts are in vain if the gods and goddesses are not blessing us. I appeal to the PM (Modi) to have images of Lord Ganesha and Goddess Lakshmi on our currency (notes). If there is an image of Lakshmi-Ganesha on our currency (notes), our country will prosper. He said he would write to the PM in a day or two about this.
However, the BJP and the Congress party lashed out at Kejriwal and claimed that it was an attempt to hide the “ugly anti-Hindu face” of the AAP amidst the upcoming elections in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh.
