Kejriwal for “21st century India”, ‘India won’t develop by dividing Hindus, Muslims’

New Delhi:  Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday said he wishes to build a “21st century India” which will not happen if Hindus and Muslims are divided.

Speaking to the media, he said the country has to compete with the world to be a 21st century nation.

“We have to build 21st century India. We have to compete with the world. I believe India is world’s best nation. India has everything. We have all the resources, mountains, rivers, types of crops, forest, minerals. I believe that India has most intelligent people in the world,” said Kejriwal.

But, he said, the “system is wrong”.

“We cannot make the country of 21st century until we have schools, colleges, university, hospitals, research, science and technology. We need to have highways, trains, enter into the space to make India a 21st century country. The country will not become developed by dividing Hindus and Muslims.”

Kejriwal also welcomed the Centre’s approval to a proposal for “Shri Ramjanmabhoomi Tirtha Kshetra” trust to take care of the construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya and other related issues.

He congratulated the country for it.

“Some people are questioning the timing of the announcement. But there is no time for good announcements. You can announce it anytime. There is no issue with good announcements,” said the Chief Minister.
