Ahead of assembly elections scheduled next month, Union Home Minister Amit Shah, promised to transform Delhi into one of the best capitals in the world if BJP is elected to power. "If you give the government of Delhi in Modiji's hands, in 5 years we will make it the best capital of the world," he stated. He was addressing a public meeting in Janakpuri, Delhi on Monday.

During his address, the Home Minister took a jibe at Delhi's Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and accused him of lying. The Home Minister said, "Well, Delhi does not stand at number one position when it comes to roads, water or any other matter. But if there is a competition for lying, Mr. Kejriwal will rank number 1 in the whole world."

"Kejriwal has only fooled the people of Delhi when it comes to development," he added.

The Home Minister also targetted Kejriwal on the matters of installing air purifiers due owing to increasing air pollution, running electric buses, etc.

Such people should be put behind the bars," he said.

Shah also attacked the Aam Admi Party over Shaheen Bagh anti-CAA protests. "Manish Sisodia had said that he stands with Shaheen Bagh. Chief Minister Kejriwal should also make his stand clear on whether or not he stands with Shaheen Bagh anti-CAA protests."
