Lok Sabha Elections 2024: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday (May 20) tweaked the BJP’s 2014 poll slogan to take a swipe at the Prime Minister and said “acche din aane waale hain, Modi ji jaane waale hain”, while exuding confidence that the Opposition’s I.N.D.I.A bloc will win the ongoing Lok Sabha Elections. Kejriwal was also addressing a street corner meeting in East Delhi's Gandhi Nagar constituency, accompanied by his wife Sunita Kejriwal for the first time in poll campaigns where he described her as “Jhansi Ki Rani”.

"Today I have brought my wife also with me. She took charge of everything in my absence. When I was in jail, she used to come to meet me. I used to inquire about the well-being of my Delhiites through her and send my messages to you. She is like Jhansi ki Rani," Kejriwal said.

What did Sunita Kejriwal say?

Sunita Kejriwal also addressed the people and appealed to them to vote in favour of the AAP so that her husband is not sent to jail again.

"It is because of your blessings that my husband is here with us today. God helps those who do the right thing. Now if you don't want my husband to go back to jail, vote for AAP on May 25," she said.

Arvind Kejriwal was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate on March 21 in a money-laundering case linked to the alleged liquor scam in Delhi. The Supreme Court granted him interim bail till June 1 only to campaign in the general elections and asked him to surrender on June 2.

"I am telling you on June 4, Modi ji's government will not be formed. Everywhere people are angry with them (BJP) due to inflation and unemployment during their rule,” Arvind Kejriwal said.

"People have made up their mind to oust them...On June 4, acche din aane waale hain, Modi ji jaane waale hain ( good days are on their way, Modi is on his way out)," he added.

The then Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi stormed to power at the Centre in 2014 on the popular slogan of ‘Acche din aane waale hain’.

Arvind Kejriwal attacks PM Modi over using “foul language” for Opposition

At another public meeting in Shahdara, the Delhi Chief Minister attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi accusing him of using “foul language” for the Opposition leaders, including Sharad Pawar and Uddhav Thackeray.

"This is not a good thing. He (Pawar) is an 84-year-old person. Modi ji is 74 years old. One should respect elders. He (Modi) said Uddhav Thackeray is not the real son of his father. What kind of 'sadak chaap' (ruffian) language is this? Does it behove the prime minister to say this? Sometimes he says the INDIA bloc will snatch your 'mangalsutra'. Despite running the country for 10 years, you do not have a single work to count. So, it is a matter of great sadness that in 10 years you have ruined the lives of people by bringing inflation and unemployment," he said at another street meeting in Patparganj.

Polling in seven Lok Sabha seats in Delhi is on May 25. The results of the elections will be out on June 4.
