If we get the right share of tax, we will leave Singapore behind: Kejriwal

New Delhi : Addressing a public meeting held in Chhattarpur, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said that if this time, seven MPs of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) win Lok Sabha elections, then in two years, Delhi will be made a full state. Kejriwal came here to lay foundation stone for development works worth more than Rs 100 crore. Under this, the construction of 333 roads, laying of water pipelines, sewer laying and strengthening of the raw colonies will be done in 12 kutcha colonies in the area.The Chief Minister said that earlier governments used to think that the area surrounding India Gate was Delhi itself. But, we are working in the development of raw colonies. Kejriwal said that for 15 years the Congress government was, but there were no four roads in these 12 lanes. At present, work is going on to construct 10 thousand roads by linking all the Kutchi Kali colonies of Delhi.School transitKejriwal said that all government schools are being transformed. Up to this level, development has never happened in Delhi at this level. For 70 years, whatever Congress and BJP party came to, they only got their house. If we want to do any work in Delhi then the permission for this has to be taken from the Central Government because Delhi is not a complete state. The people of Delhi are being insulted for 70 years. The Delhi government should get back 50 percent of its taxes, but this is not happening. If we start getting the right part, then we will leave Singapore behind.Gopal Rai wrote a letter asking for opinionDelhi State Convenor of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Cabinet Minister, Gopal Rai, wrote a letter asking the BJP and Congress state presidents to give Delhi the full state status to Delhi.
