Bengaluru: Taking a dig at PM Narendra Modi’s initiatives to attract investments, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal advised him saying, “Don’t go after capital, capital should come after you.”

Addressing an autorickshaw drivers’ rally here on Sunday, Mr Kejriwal took a dig at the foreign tours of Mr Modi and said the PM should also tour India to understand the problems of common people. Referring to his slogans like ‘Ease of Doing business’ and ‘Skill India', Mr Kejriwal said Mr Modi should discuss these things with autorickshaw drivers, instead of business tycoons like Mr Adani and Mr Ambani.

 

“He should discuss with auto drivers, small shopkeepers and  small time businessmen how to make their business easier. They will tell him what the people in India are facing and how they are being harassed by the bureaucracy. I asked my officials to look into all unwanted licenses in Delhi. Now, the report is ready and I will do away with the unwanted license system. The common people should be allowed to do business without red tape. These people talk about the poor only during elections and later, sit with Adanis and Ambanis to prepare policies,” he quipped.

Taking a dig at the Skill India initiative, he said the government should not kill the existing skills of the people.

“Don’t make  people, who have driving skills unemployed. The rule making class VIII pass minimum for obtaining autorickshaw driving license was started only a few years ago. Does that mean autorickshaw drivers before that were bad?,” he said.
