New Delhi, May 11: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was dubbed as a "dictatorial anarchist" by the opposition on Sunday for his government's controversial circular threatening action against the media for any defamatory news.
Soon after that, the Delhi Chief Minister on Sunday said that he doesn't care about media and praising his party he said that if election is held in the national capital today, Aam Aadmi Party would poll 72 per cent votes.
He also said that his government is going to complete 100 days. After the Delhi Assembly's elections, people's affection has increased towards the AAP.
The Delhi Chief Minister also took a dig at the Narendra Modi-led central government, saying "normally, it is seen that parties win the election, but gradually people get fed up of them. The biggest example of this is the Modi Government at the Centre".
"Their popularity has decreased from the time they came to power. But our popularity has increased and today if elections are conducted in Delhi then we will get 72 per cent votes according to our survey."
In the last Assembly elections, the AAP polled 54.59 per cent. Kejriwal said the AAP government is going to complete 100 days in its office on May 24 while the Modi government will complete its one year on May 26.
"I think there should be comparison of work between Modi's and our governments. There should be comparison as to what we have done in the last 100 days and what Modi's government has done in the last one year," he also said.
Attacking the media, the Delhi Chief Minister said, "Media keep showing us in negative light but don't worry about that as people of Delhi are happy with us. Despite seeing media, people gave us 67 seats."
"As far as starting a media house is concerned, we don't want to do that. There are good people in media too, who are not happy. If some senior people come together and want to start a news channel or news paper, the government will definitely help them. We also want a honest media house which only shows news," he said.
