“Don’t Insult Common Man” ,Kejriwal Targets PM Modi Over ‘Revdi’ Jibe
NEW DELHI : Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday targetted Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “revdi” jibe asking why individuals concerned about inflation should not have access to free education and healthcare. Questioned why people, who are worried due to inflation, should not get access to free education and treatment, and said by calling such things free “revdi”, the common man should not be insulted.
CM said the common man shouldn’t be insulted by calling such services “free” or “revdi” as he shared a video where PM Modi in his address criticised the political culture of “revdi,” or freebies. In a Hindi tweet, Arvind Kejriwal wrote: “People are very worried due to the price rise. Why should they not get free education, treatment, medicines, and electricity? Politicians get so many facilities for free.
“People are quite worried due to the price rise. Why should they not get free education, treatment, medicines and electricity? Politicians get so many facilities for free. Banks waived the loans of so many rich people. By calling it free revdi again and again, do not insult the common man.”
Modi had slammed the freebie culture in his address after virtually conducting the “grih pravesh” ceremony of 4.51 lakh beneficiaries of the Prime Minister Awas Yojana (PMAY) in Satna district of Madhya Pradesh on Saturday. Banks waived the loans of so many rich people. Do not insult the common people by saying muft revdi again and again.”
“Every taxpayer must be thinking that as I celebrate Diwali, the poor brothers in Madhya Pradesh too are rejoicing during the festival of lights. He is getting a pukka house. His daughter’s life will improve. But when this taxpayer sees that the money collected from him is being spent on the distribution of revdi, he is pained,” the prime minister had said. The BJP and AAP have been attacking each other over the ‘revdi’ jibe as the Arvind Kejriwal-led party is trying to challenge the saffron party in the upcoming Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh elections.
