New Delhi: Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal has justified that freebies are ‘good for economy’. His statement comes days ahead of Delhi polls.
Kejriwal said a ‘limited dose’ of freebies are not harmful and added that it makes more money available to the poor, hence boosts demand.
Responding to Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s criticism over the installation of CCTV cameras, schools and free Wi-Fi, Kejriwal said that he was ‘happy’ that the people of Delhi have changed the politics of the city and compelled BJP to talk about CCTV, water and electricity.
Kejriwal, who filed his nomination papers on Tuesday, after failing to do so on Monday, also highlighted his government’s achievements over the past five years. Delhi goes to polls on February 8 and the AAP and BJP are locked in a bitter battle in the national capital.
