Will 'Hindu-Muslim' talk make India number 1, Arvind Kejriwal asks PM
New Delhi, July 16: Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday took a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for talking of Hindus and Muslims even after four years of in office.
Addressing a gathering at Indore on Sunday, Kejriwal quoted media reports to say PM Modi in his speech had said Congress happened to be the party of Muslims and that BJP was of the party of Hindus. He said when America was talking of nano technology and Japan, France and London were talking of big technologies, Modi was talking of Hindus and Muslims .
Kejriwal's remarks came a day after the Prime Minister, during a rally in Uttar Pradesh's Azamgarh, asked if the Congress was a party for Muslim men alone.
"If Modi is talking about Hindu-Muslims even after four years, it means his government has achieved nothing," Mr Kejriwal said at the Aam Aadmi Party's state-level convention in Indore.
PM Modi had on Saturday attacked opposition parties, particularly the Congress, over what he claimed was their opposition to the triple talaq bill.
The Delhi chief minister asked the Prime Minister if talking about Hindus and Muslims would help India become the number one country in the world.
PM Modi was harping on the Hindu-Muslim issue when the US was talking about nanotechnology, and Japan, France and England were pursuing "big technologies", Mr Kejriwal said.
The Delhi chief minister said that education alone would make India "number one" and alleged that no government at the Centre had worked earnestly for the education sector in the last 70 years.
"Indians are the wisest people in the world. But due to dirty politics, a large number of people are being intentionally kept illiterate," he claimed.
