‘Yes, I will give free Revdi to the public.’, Convener of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has made the attack on ‘Rewdi culture’ his weapon and aggressively himself for the public’ Have started promoting ‘Rewariwala’. Kejriwal, who has intensified his campaign five months before the Gujarat assembly elections, has made a bet like free electricity and can present many ‘free’ promises in the coming times. The way Arvind Kejriwal seems to be trying to take sweetness from ‘Revdi’, political experts are connecting it to PM Modi’s ‘Main Bhi Chowkidar’ bet.
Analysts of Modi’s successful journey from being the Chief Minister of Gujarat to becoming the Prime Minister of the country for two consecutive terms say that his biggest strength is that he is adept at making the opposition’s attacks his weapon. Gujarat riots, chaiwala or chowkidar chor… He has always been injuring the opposition with his own arrows. Now on the same lines, Arvind Kejriwal has also started trying to redeem ‘Revdi’ in his favor. However, only time will tell how much he gets from this bet, but he is openly challenging him in Modi’s stronghold.
People want ‘free rewari’?
Recently, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has appealed to the people to reject the ‘Rewari culture’ as dangerous for the country, while the Supreme Court has also expressed concern over the flurry of free promises in the elections. However, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal claims that the public wants facilities like free education and health, which he will stick to. He also challenged to get a referendum done on Revdi during a rally in Gujarat on 1st August. Without naming the BJP, Kejriwal said that they distribute Revdi to ministers, their friends and the AAP government gives Revdi to the public as it has a right on it. Another interesting sight was seen in the same rally when a worker who came as a ‘Kejriwal Revdiwala’ started shouting ‘Let the Revdi, take the free Revdi’. In a light-hearted manner, AAP has given a message to try populist schemes like free electricity, water, free bus travel and free pilgrimage to the elderly in states other than Delhi-Punjab.
What did PM Modi say?
PM Modi has hit out at least thrice in the recent past, calling the ‘Rewari culture’ fatal for the country. PM Modi said that efforts are being made to bring in the culture of collecting votes by distributing free revdi in our country. This Rewari culture is very dangerous for the development of the country. The people of the country have to be very careful with this Revdi culture. He also said that those who distribute free Revdi can never build new roads and new airports. However, PM Modi did not name any party or leader while saying so. Arvind Kejriwal took it as an attack on himself and is now trying to use it as a weapon.
