UP, 2/1: Delhi chief minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday promised to build schools and provide employment to the people of Uttar Pradesh instead of building ‘kabristan’ (graveyard) and ‘shamshan’ (cremation grounds) if his party was voted to power in the state in forthcoming assembly polls.
Addressing his party’s first public meeting here, Kejriwal also promised a free trip to Ayodhya, besides providing free electricity to the people if his party came to power in the state.
“The biggest BJP leader had said in 2017 that Samajwadi Party (SP) president Akhilesh Yadav built graveyards in UP and that if he came in power he would build cremation grounds…We will build neither….instead we will build schools and hospitals if we come to power,” he said.
He also took potshots at Akhilesh without taking his name and said that the SP chief would not be able to provide free electricity. “Only we know how to give free electricity,” Kejriwal added.
