Launching an attack on Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal, Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Wednesday stated that the Delhi Chief Minister is the ‘biggest liar’ he has ever seen.

Talking on his first public meeting in the New Delhi constituency in support of BJP candidate Sunil Yadav, Amit Shah questioned the Arvind Kejriwal if he would give prosecution sanction against Sharjeel Imam who has been taken into custody over his controversial remark.

The Union Home Minister stated that Arvind Kejriwal had lied that he won’t take a government bungalow or a vehicle. "Now, he has bungalow and car both. Kejriwal is the biggest liar I have seen in my 56 years," Shah said.

The BJP leader also raised doubts about the accomplishments of AAP government in the education sector, stating that when BJP leaders unmasked the AAP dispensation’s false claims, but Delhi CM replied "We (BJP) are insulting Delhi".

"Kejriwal-ji, have you been feeling like Indira Gandhi?" Mr Shah asked.

"Indira Gandhi used to say Indira is India and India is Indira. Kejriwal also thinks Kejriwal is Delhi and Delhi is Kejriwal," he added.

Amit Shah threw brickbats at Arvind Kejriwal "for not granting prosecution sanction" against those who raised "tukde-tukde" slogans in JNU in February 2016.

"Now, Sharjeel Imam has threatened to cut off Assam from India. We have sent him to jail. I want to ask Kejriwal-ji whether he will grant sanction to prosecute him or not," he said.

The Union Home Minister stated that the government will change by itself if the people of the New Delhi constituency ‘overturn’ things in their seat.

"Thirty-five seats are needed to change the government in Delhi. If you overturn the things here (New Delhi), it will change automatically. So, you alone can do the work of the people of 35 constituencies," he said.

"Press the button so hard that protesters in Shaheen Bagh feel the current," Amit Shah added.

The BJP leader exhibited confidence that the BJP will win the Delhi Assembly polls with an out and out majoritiy. "I declare from this stage that BJP will win an absolute majority and form the government in Delhi," he said.

Amit Shah also claimed that Arvind Kejriwal got the former chief secretary of Delhi, Anshu Prakash, assaulted after inviting him home. "Is this how an elected government should work? The officer did not want to work (in Delhi)... we had to ''withdraw'' him," he said.

The Union Home Minister also blamed the Delhi CM of tricking Anna Hazare by introducing a fraud Jan Lokpal Bill.
