New Delhi: Congress hit out at Arvind Kejriwal on his call for the Center to include photos of Ganesh, Laxmi on banknotes.
Sandeep Dikshit of Congress said, “He is the B team of BJP and RSS. He has no understanding. This is his voting policy. If he goes to Pakistan, he can also say that I am Pakistani, so vote for me.
Meanwhile, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi to have pictures of Lord Ganesha and Goddess Lakshmi on banknotes.
During a press conference, he said that the photos of Ganesha and Lakshmi could be printed on new banknotes. He added that the new notes could have an image of Mahatma Gandhi on one side and the two deities on the other.
“Despite our efforts, sometimes our efforts do not bear fruit if the gods and goddesses do not bless us. I appeal to PM (Modi) to have pictures of Lord Ganesha and Goddess Laxmi on our motto ( notes).
“If there is a picture of Lakshmi-Ganesha on our currency (notes), our country will prosper. I will write to the Prime Minister in a day or two about this,” he said.
He cited the example of Indonesia, a Muslim nation, which has an image of Ganesha on its banknote.
“When Indonesia can, why not us? Photos can be printed on new banknotes (currencies),” he said.
Lamenting that the Indian economy was not in good shape, he said the country was going through a difficult situation with the depreciation of the rupee against the US dollar.
“We all want India to be rich and every family to be prosperous. We need to open schools and hospitals on a large scale,” he added.
Kejriwal also said that the Aam Aadmi party was fully prepared for the Delhi municipal elections and stressed that the people of the national capital would reject the BJP.
He also challenged the BJP to cite a good job he had done in Gujarat, where he has led a government for 27 years.
“All the demonic powers lined up against us,” Kejriwal said in the upcoming Gujarat polls.
