New Delhi:

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today doubled down on his claim that the banknotes bear images of Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Ganesh. Yesterday, he urged the Prime Minister to issue a new banknote with a picture, showing it will help the country overcome economic difficulties.

Today, he officially wrote a letter to Narendra Modi, “on behalf of 130 Indians requesting”, that images of Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Ganesh be put on the banknotes along with Mahatma Gandhi.

“The economy of the country is going through a very bad period. Even after 75 years of Independence, India is still known as a developing and poor country… On the one hand, the people need must work hard, but we also need God’s blessing for our efforts to “bear fruit”, he said in his letter, written in Hindi, which he also posted on Twitter.

Arvind Kejriwal added that his public request in yesterday’s press conference had great support from the people. “Everybody is very excited about this, everyone wants this done as soon as possible,” he added.

On Thursday, Party head Aam Aadmi said that Lakshmi is the goddess of prosperity and Lord Ganesh has removed barriers. “I’m not saying change all notes. But all new notes that are released every month should have pictures of them.”

He was referring to Indonesia, a Muslim country with Lord Ganesh on their banknotes. “When Indonesia can, why can’t we?” The image of Lord Ganesh is printed on the 20,000 rupiah bill of Indonesia.

The AAP and Mr. Kejriwal have drawn criticism from some supporters and detractors, who see it as an attempt to mimic the BJP’s politics to sidestep other opposition parties and become their main challenger. .

The parliamentary elections of Himachal Pradesh and Gujarat are near, so are the civics polls in Delhi, and the AAP has been continuously trying to corner the BJP and far out the majority voter base. its traditional number.

The BJP mocked Mr Kejriwal’s comments, calling it his “latest turn of events”, while Congress called it “voting politics”.
