Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal addressed the legislative assembly on the second day of the winter session, expressing his view that his party could one day be in power at the Centre. He spoke about the ongoing tussle between the government in the national capital and LG Vinay Saxena, and stated that “time is very powerful, nothing is permanent in the world”. He accused Saxena of stopping teachers from getting training from Finland, and of having a feudal mindset towards the education of poor children.
Kejriwal said that Saxena was “putting on hold important files and creating hindrances in the working of the government”, and that the BJP “don’t want teachers to visit Finland”. He noted that many MPs of the BJP and their children had studied in foreign countries, and asked why they should be allowed to do so while poor children are prevented from getting a better education. Kejriwal said that the Delhi LG had a feudal mindset, and that his actions were preventing progress. He concluded by expressing his belief that his party could one day be in power at the Centre.
