Arvind Kejriwal, the chief minister of Delhi, responded to Manohar Lal Khattar’s comments on “freebies” on Sunday. CM Kejriwal stated that the Haryana people will soon benefit from freebies while discussing the upcoming assembly elections in 2024.
Taking to ‘X’ (formerly known as Twitter), the Delhi CM said, “Khattar Sahab! We provide free and world-class education and health services in Delhi. We provide free electricity and water around the clock. We have started these facilities in Punjab, too and the public is happy with us. Soon, the people of Haryana will also get the benefit of freebies”.
The Aam Aadmi Party was singled out by Haryana Chief Minister Khattar earlier on Saturday when he interacted with those who had benefited from his Pariwar Antyodaya program and accused other parties of using catchphrases like “Get this for free, Get that for free.” Many political parties use catchphrases like “get this for free, get that for free.” Our government’s priority is to meet the needs of a working person, improve his skills, and develop him, not to foster the habit of handing out free things, said CM Khattar. It is important to note that the AAP was accused of engaging in “Revdi politics,” or “freebies politics,” by the Bharatiya Janata Party during the Gujarat assembly elections.
