BJP MP from West Delhi, Parvesh Singh Verma slammed Arvind Kejriwal-led government in Delhi for backing the Muslim community alone, while avoiding the Hindus
New Delhi: West Delhi BJP MP, Parvesh Singh Verma attacked the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) over its negligence as the opposition staged a walkout in the Lok Sabha on Monday (February 3).
The BJP MP accused Arvind Kejriwal-led government of favouring Islamic clerics by offering them Rs 18,000 from the taxpayers money.
He further said that the Kejriwal government conveniently forgets the pujaris in temples and the gurudwara's granthi.
Verma stressed that the central government always took a step in fulfilling tasks, be it phase 4 of the metro, distribution of colonies or flyovers. He further stated that schemes like Ayushman Bharat are not implemented in the state.
Verma, who initiated the debate during the Motion of Thanks on the President's address in the Lok Sabha, accused the Congress of indulging in "uncounted corruptions" and practising "vote bank politics." He accused the ruling AAP of backing Shaheen Bagh protestors.
Verma claimed that the protest at Shaheen Bagh "was not against CAA" and the people there had talked about targeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and home minister Amit Shah, "Wanting Jihad" and "Azadi sought by Jinnah”.
He alleged that slogans hailing Pakistan had been raised and remarks had been made of separating Assam, Kashmir. He said the media had faced attacks and "slogans had been raised against the police”.
Verma alleged that AAP leaders were backing Shaheen Bagh protestors. He made some remarks about former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, which were expunged from proceedings.
