Freebies before election Not right
One may ask: Does this huge money belongs to Arvind Kejriwal that he is offering free ride to women in Delhi? It is people's money.
All the political parties whether it is BJP or AAP are giving freebies to voters. They are trying to grab power or remain in power by giving things free to people.
If country is economically growing, then why should the governments give free things to some sections of the society. This must stop.
One must ask Kejriwal how free ride to women in public transport like Metro and DTC buses will ensure their further safety as he is claiming.
If Kejriwal has enough money in Delhi government kitty then let him make it free for all passengers.
Unfortunately, he is trying to fool Delhi people. He knows that the Central government is not going to give him green signal via Lieutenant Governor. And this is what Kejriwal wants. His eyes are now on the next year's Assembly elections.
In the recently held Lok Sabha polls, AAP was at the third place. The BJP won all the seven seats. The results all over the country showed that women in greater numbers voted for BJP.
So Kejriwal is now trying to attract women with such stupid and economically unviable schemes of free ride to women in Metro and DTC buses.
This freebies thing must stop. These politicians for their vested interest are going to make this nation lazy and getting used to expect everything from the government FREE.
PS: The right thing would have been for Kejriwal to ask Delhi Metro to reduce fares and his government would bear the loss to Metro. Last year, Metro increased fares and lose big number of riders.
