AAP Accuses PM Modi of Low-Level Politics Over Delhi CM Kejriwal’s Exclusion From Metro Airport Express Line Inauguration

AAP Accuses PM Modi of Low-Level Politics Over Delhi CM Kejriwal’s Exclusion From Metro Airport Express Line Inauguration

A huge political controversy erupted in the national capital recently as the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) lashed out at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for not extending an invitation to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for the inauguration of the Delhi Airport Metro Express Line extension. In a scathing attack on Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, AAP National Spokesperson Priyanka Kakkar accused him of being a part of “low-level politics” as well as prioritizing self-promotion instead of collaborative governance.

PM Modi Inaugurates Airport Express Line Extension

Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the extension of the Delhi Airport Metro Express Line, a route that now runs from Dwarka Sector 21 to the newly built metro station known as ‘YashoBhoomi Dwarka Sector 25.’ The inauguration ceremony, which included a trip on the Delhi Metro by the prime minister of the country, marked the beginning of the official commencement of operations for passengers on the new line.

Kakkar’s criticism was directed at Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s conspicuous exclusion from the ceremony. She stressed that the Delhi government pays half of the total cost for the Delhi Metro system, making it a collaborative effort between the central government as well as the city administration. Despite this considerable collaboration, Kakkar lamented the absence of a formal invitation to the Chief Minister, describing the lack of one as a “cheap mentality.”

AAP Demands Unity for Delhi’s Development

Atishi, a Delhi Minister, and a senior AAP leader, further expressed disappointment at the absence of Chief Minister Kejriwal from the ceremony. She emphasized the significance of partnership with regard to the central as well as Delhi governments in the long-term growth of the national capital. Atishi urged Prime Minister Modi to “rise above party lines” and serve as the guardian of all state governments, assuring that they were involved in major decisions that are made and important ceremonies which take place.

Another AAP spokesman, Saurabh Bharadwaj, drew attention to the irony of Prime Minister Modi’s recent worldwide claim that “the world is a family” while speaking at the G20 Leaders’ Summit. He slammed the Prime Minister for failing to request the presence of Kejriwal to join the inauguration ceremony, which he saw as a contradiction to the global ethos of unity and togetherness.

Prime Minister’s Response and Metro Line Details

The office of Prime Minister Modi has not yet publicly addressed the accusations made by the AAP. However, the ceremony went over without a hitch. PM Modi spoke with Metro users, who offered their congratulatory messages as well as snapped photos with him. The area’s connectivity is anticipated to be greatly improved with the forthcoming extension.

With this addition, the length of the Airport Express Line has increased to roughly 24.9 kilometers, cutting the distance between New Delhi and YashoBhoomi Dwarka Sector 25’s journey time in half to a mere 21 minutes. The operational speed of trains on the Airport Express Line would increase from 90 to 120 km/h, according to a Delhi Metro announcement.

It is uncertain how the central as well as Delhi governments are likely to react with respect to the concerns voiced by AAP at this point in the political debate or whether they are going to be able to come to an agreement to support the capital’s growth in the future.

Prime Minister’s Move to Exclude CM from Metro Inauguration is Divisive

The recent inauguration of the Delhi Airport Metro Express Line extension by Prime Minister Narendra Modi has given rise to a political firestorm in the nation’s capital, and for all the wrong reasons. It is extremely disheartening to witness such a divisive move, one which weakens and undermines the spirit of cooperative federalism as well as heightens political polarization.

By deliberately making a choice to not extend an invitation to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for an event which symbolizes a joint effort between the central government as well as the city administration, Prime Minister Modi has sent out a regrettable message. This move only serves to fuel the perception of political pettiness as well as an unhealthy obsession with individual credit rather than collective achievement which could bring the parties together for growth of the national capital.

The Centre along with the Delhi government jointly manage the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC), which means that the two entities are equally responsible for its financial management. In such a cooperation, including the state’s chief executive in key events such as metro inaugurations is not just conventional but essential as well. It is not simply a breach of convention to leave Chief Minister Kejriwal off the guest list; it is also an untapped chance to show cooperation as well as the true spirit of governance.

Recent statements made by Prime Minister Modi pertaining to “the world being a family” when addressing the G20 Leaders’ Summit are in stark contrast to the way he behaves at his native country. These kinds of actions come with the risk of conveying the wrong impression to the outside world as well as damaging India’s reputation for democratic and cooperative governance. It is extremely important for leaders to put the welfare of the people they represent ahead of the differences between parties.

The leaders of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) are correct to call this action “low-level politics.” Delhi’s citizens, as well as all of India’s citizens, ought to have leaders who put their needs before political or ideological rivalry. To maintain the smooth growth of the national capital, the nation should see cooperation as well as harmony between both the central and state governments rather than divisive measures.

In the end, government exists to improve the lives of every one of its citizens, not to pursue one’s own glory. Prime Minister Modi might want to reconsider his strategy and acknowledge that leadership that is inclusive is beneficial to all parties, but divisive politics will only serve to erode the confidence as well as harmony which should rule the functioning of our democracy.
