NEW DELHI: Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday criticised the Narendra Modi-led NDA gover nment over the expenditure on advertisements to mark its two-year anniversary.

Kejriwal said in his two years of government, Modi only conspired to destabilise chief ministers in various states while people are being targeted in the name of “Bharat Mata”.

In a series of tweets, the Delhi chief minister said, “Two years ago, you promised that Team India shall not be limited to PM but include CMs. Now you conspire to destabilize CMs. Dear PM sir, those who say Bharat Mata ki Jai in Kashmir and those who don’t say it outside Kashmir are being attacked,” (sic) he tweeted.

He also said that minorities and Dalits were being attacked, and traders and jewellers were disappointed and angry with the central government.

“Dear @narendramodi ji two years ago, you promised education for Dalits but remained silent on Rohith Vemula’s institutional murder,” he said in another tweet.

He also took up the issue of corruption and tweeted, “Two years ago you promised corruption-free governance but are silent (like Manmohan Ji) on Vyapam, Lalitgate, mallya, khadse.” (sic)

Ashutosh, a member of Delhi’s ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), too questioned the Centre over the money spent for publicity.
