Going to Varanasi not to contest elections but to defeat Narendra Modi: Kejriwal

If BJP claims that voting for Modi would bring stability, then Manmohan Singh has given more stability: Kejriwal

New Delhi | Updated: March 19, 2014 7:58 am

Firing a fresh salvo at Narendra Modi, AAP National Convener Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday said his decision to enter the electoral fray from Varanasi was not a “symbolic gesture” but to defeat the BJP’s Prime Ministerial candidate.

Narendra Modi has announced that he will contest from Varanasi. So even I am going to Varanasi. We will ask people there on whether I should contest against Modi. If they say yes then I am ready to contest”, he said.

“I read in newspapers and websites and that this is a symbolic fight. I must tell you that we are going there not to contest elections, but to defeat Modi,” Kejriwal said.

He was speaking at a conference “Roadmap to Indian Muslims”, which was attended by AAP leaders like Prashant Bhushan and Gopal Rai. Kejriwal invited the crowd, mostly AAP supporters from the minority community, to join him in Varanasi.

As he announced that he was going to defeat Modi, the crowd roared, “Abhi to Sheila hari hain, Modi teri bari hain (Sheila has been defeated. Now it is Modi’s time)

He said that all parties indulged in corrupt practises and communal politics and this was led by the BJP and the Congress.

“All parties are the same. They indulge in corruption and communal politics, but leaders of all these parties are Congress and the BJP. It is important to defeat these parties…not on the basis of numbers, but by defeating their leaders. It is important to defeat Rahul Gandhi and Narendra Modi.

“We have sent Kumar Vishwas to Amethi and he has been stationed there for the past three months. He is being attacked on daily basis, but he is too strong to back out,” he said.

Kejriwal added that if the BJP claims that voting for Modi would bring stability, then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has given more stability.

“When I had been to Bangalore, people told me that I will eat into (BJP) votes. If Modi comes to power he will give stability. Then I said if you want stability then Dr Manmohan Singh has given maximum stability in last 10 years.   People  dont want stability, they want security and justice. Stability will come even if there are elections in a year or two. But these parties will spread corruption and communalism in the name of stability and this is unacceptable to us,” he said.

    Arvind Kejriwal is India’s biggest scam.Arvind Kejriwal’s NGO ‘Sampoorna Parivartan’ and CSDS (Center for the Study of Developing Societies) have been granted $80,000 and the $250,000 respectively. Key ociates of Arvind Kejriwal like Yogendra Yadav, have been functionaries of the CSDS. What makes this funding to Kejriwal a criminal activity is the fact that he in 2002 was still a government servant and therefore not enled to receive it. Government servants are not permitted to float NGOs without due permission.Kejriwal branched off from Parivartan to establish yet another NGO, Kabir. As per the doents, Kabir was established on 15 August 2005. This was again illegal, as Kejriwal continued to be in government service.It has also been established that CIA operatives operate through the academic route. One such academic researcher Ms Shimrit Lee was ociated with Kejriwal’s Kabir NGO in the garb of doing research on ‘Public Power: India and Other Democracies’. Ms Lee specializes in Tahrir Square type demonstrations that we are now witnessing in Ukraine. She has been active in Cairo, Haifa, Chad and Israel, India and US. It is she who introduced the ideas of Mohalla Committees and brought the Arab Spring technology to India to launch KejriwalThat the US has been using the Dutch for pushing its agenda in India, which includes destabilization of India’s Northeast is kown.It is also well known as to how the CIA and the Dutch Intelligence Agency (BVD – Binenlandise Veiligheidsdienst) connived in allowing AQ Khan to steal nuclear secrets from URENCO, site at Almeto in Netherlands, only with the purpose of balancing stan with India in nuclear capability during the Cold War. It is through this kind of geopolitical balancing in various regions that the US maintains its lead role.Arvind Kejriwal is therefore not a political threat but a security threat to this country, his main objective being to destabilize India to perpetuate US agenda.

      It is high time that AAP works to 'do' some thing, however small geographical area; rather than doing against Modi to 'prove' some thing. What Mr Kejriwal is doing sounds like for the sound bites of it; and not for communicating their original message of Anti Corruption.

        It means Is he not going to contest in the election. Another bailout and another drama. He predicted his own election outcome or result.

          I have never seen any other leader from any party who has faced the Press and answered all questions with absolute confidence and clarity without any ambiguity or attempt to dodge,deflect or duck the questions put forth as Mr Arvind Kejriwal.
