New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday rolled out the ”Kejriwal aapke dwaar” campaign with the launch of a website through which he will connect with the people of Delhi using pre-recorded messages.
Arvind Kejriwal said that with the help of technology he would be able to directly reach out to the people of the city.
“We made a website through which I will be able to talk directly to the people of Delhi on different issues” he said.
The website, welcomekejriwal.in, has pre-recorded messages of the chief minister on issues such as health, education and unauthorised colonies.
“People would also be able to register their complaints which I will address after elections,” he added.
The website lists the achievements of the AAP in different fields in the last five years.
A number, 76909-44444, has also been issued on which users need to give a missed call and open the link that they will then receive.
“I wanted to visit every household and meet all the family members personally through door-to-door campaigning.
I wanted to sit with them and discuss my report card for the last five years, informing them of all the work done in the last five years, and answer their questions,” Arvind Kejriwal said.
“But it is not physically possible to visit each of the 50 lakh households in Delhi. I wanted to have a direct conversation with the people without any mediators in between.
When I asked my team about the way this can be made possible, resolutions through technological approaches were devised,” he said.
The website has several listed options including education, health, electricity, water, infrastructure, women’s security and unauthorized colonies in Delhi. On clicking each option, Arvind Kejriwal will list various achievements in each of these departments.
The chief minister said that through the platform, they are trying to reach as many people as possible through various media platforms.
Citizenship Amendment Act India’s Internal Matter, Says France: Report
New Delhi: France considers the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) an internal matter of India, French diplomatic sources said today after nearly 600 lawmakers in the 751-member European Union parliament moved six resolutions against the controversial law.
The lawmakers had said the Citizenship Amendment Act marked a dangerous shift in India’s citizenship regime.
For France, the CAA is India’s internal political matter and it has been stated on several occasions, the sources said. They added that the European Parliament is an institution independent of member states and the European Commission.
The Citizenship Amendment Act offers citizenship to non-Muslims from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan.
India has been witnessing massive protests against the new law with opposition parties, civil rights groups and activists saying that granting citizenship based on religion is against the foundational principles of the Constitution.
Indian has maintained that the Citizenship Amendment Act was an entirely internal matter and that it was adopted through democratic means after a debate in both houses of Parliament.
