Gujarat Assembly Elections 2022: Before the Gujarat assembly elections, political parties are engaged in wooing the voters. In this sequence, on Friday, 25 November 2022, Aam Aadmi Party spokesperson Raghav Chadha held a press conference and attacked the BJP. Along with this, he has said that if the Aam Aadmi Party government is formed in Gujarat, then his party will implement the old pension scheme in the state.
Addressing the media, Aam Aadmi Party Rajya Sabha MP and co-incharge of Gujarat, Raghav Chadha said that there has been a huge demand of all government employees in Gujarat that the ‘old pension scheme’ should be restored in Gujarat. For this demand, government employees have fought a huge movement on the streets of Gujarat. He said that the Aam Aadmi Party and Arvind Kejriwal have promised that when the Aam Aadmi Party sweeps government will be formed in Gujarat on December 8, 2022, then the Aam Aadmi Party in Gujarat will revive the ‘old pension scheme’ for all government employees. Will implement in Gujarat.
‘Scheme implemented in Punjab as well’
He said that in Punjab also we had promised during the election that we will implement the ‘Old Pension Scheme’ and we have shown that in Punjab as well. It has been only 7 months since the Aam Aadmi Party government was formed in Punjab, yet we have implemented the ‘old pension scheme’ for all the government employees there. He further said that means we have fulfilled the promise we made and that is why we come to Gujarat and say with a sting that when the Aam Aadmi Party government will be formed in Gujarat on December 8, the Aam Aadmi Party will also be in Gujarat. Will restore the ‘old pension scheme’ for all employees.
Attack on BJP
He said that the ‘New Pension Scheme’ is a loss deal for government employees. It was the BJP that implemented the ‘New Pension Scheme’. When the Bharatiya Janata Party was in power at the Center in the year 2002-2003, they imposed the ‘New Pension Scheme’ on the government employees. The employees had protested even then and are still protesting, but the Aam Aadmi Party is the only government in the entire country of India, which listened to the employees and restored the ‘old pension scheme’ in Punjab.
Congress also took a dig at
He said that if there is an election atmosphere, other parties are also making this promise, but I want to caution the voters of Gujarat that whatever other party is promising you that it will implement the ‘old pension scheme’, you Ask them that they have governments in other states as well. Have they implemented this plan there? You ask the Congress that if you are so well-wisher of the government employees, have you implemented the ‘old pension scheme’ in the rest of your states?
Raghav Chadha regarding Manoj Tiwari
Raghav Chadha said that through his statement, BJP MP Manoj Tiwari threatened to kill Arvind Kejriwal, talked about gouging out Arvind Kejriwal’s eyes and breaking his legs. An attempt has been made to incite the sentiments of the people and an open call has been given to the people for violence. He said that today BJP is scared of Arvind Kejriwal, because of this they are talking about killing Arvind Kejriwal. Due to these things, the culture of BJP and the mentality of its leaders has come in front of the people. Such leaders should get themselves treated in the hospital because, these leaders have lost their mental balance.
Demand to increase security of Arvind Kejriwal
Along with this, Raghav Chadha said that I want to appeal to the Delhi Police and the Union Home Ministry that the way BJP MPs are threatening to kill, beat Arvind Kejriwal and are trying to incite the crowd and democratic Taking cognizance of these statements, Arvind Kejriwal’s security should be increased and if there is any lapse in his security, it should be assumed that Manoj Tiwari and BJP are responsible for him.
