Modi behaves like prime minister of Pakistan: Arvind Kejriwal
New Delhi, Feb 11: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday launched a verbal war on prime minister Narendra Modi saying that he behaves like 'prime minister of Pakistan.'
"A Prime Minister is prime minister of the nation, not of a party. The way he treats government of opposition parties in other states, it's like he is not the Prime Minister of India, but Prime Minister of Pakistan," Kejriwal said at Andhra Bhawan where Naidu is sitting on fast.
"It is very sad that the CM of Andhra and the people have to sit on a dharna in Delhi leaving their state and it raises a question on the federal structure of our country. The prime minister had publicly announced he will give special status to Andhra but he is famous for speaking lies globally. Whatever he says he never fulfils it. Amit Shah had once even said that whatever they say, are just jumla," Kejriwal said while addressing the gathering.
"Prime Minister had promised the special status for Andhra in Tirupati temple, but he does not fulfil promises made to the god as well," Kejriwal added while extending his and his party's support to Naidu.
Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu's daylong fast demanding special status for his state on Monday became a rallying point for various opposition leaders who visited the protest venue to back him and attack the central government.
Congress president Rahul Gandhi, National Congress chairperson Farooq Abdullah, NCP's Majeed Memon, Trinamool Congress' Derek O' Brien, DMK's Tiruchi Siva and Samajwadi Party founder Mulayam Singh Yadav were among those who met the TDP chief to express their support.
