Arvind Kejriwal gets candid on radio, speaks of an honest govt
New Delhi, Dec 4: From a musical welcome to answering questions posed by Delhities, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal's radio debut 'Mirchi Dialogue' saw the former Delhi CM at his candid best.
Upon reaching the Radio Mirchi FM station Kejriwal was welcomed by the staff with a medley of songs to which even he answered in the same way.
Kejriwal answered a volley of questions posed to him by Delhities. Addressing the people he said: "People love us but they're love fell a little short. Instead of getting 36 seats in the Delhi assembly elections last year, we got only 26 seats," Kejriwal said.
Answering a question by a Delhiite on whether Delhi can be like Singapore, Kejriwal answered, "Delhi's governance is bad, its infrastructure is bad. When I was the CM I realised to things, one the government has a lot of money.
What ever money the government has we can provide good infrastructure to the people and can provide subsidised water and electricity 24X7 to the people. Secondly I saw that whatever problems arise in the government, all of them have a solution.
All problems that arise in a govt, have a solution: Kejriwal
Because there are vested interests of people, these problems are never solved. If you bring good and honest people, Delhi won't be like Singapore but it will be a city the way people of Delhi want it to be," he said.
Kejriwal also spoke about his family, and said that he lived a very normal life and didn't like anything fancy even when he was the CM of Delhi.
Delhi Assembly elections are expected to be held in February next year and AAP is eyeing a comeback in Delhi.
