New Delhi: Launching a scathing attack on the Modi government on completion of its two years in office, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday alleged that the Prime Minister is yet to deliver on his promises of corruption-free governance, education for dalits and associating chief ministers in the states with vision of 'Team India'.

In a series of tweets, the Delhi CM alleged that in the last two years, minorities, students and dalits have been
tragetted while traders, jewellers, businessmen were disappointed and angry with the Centre.

He said, like his predecessor Manmohan Singh, the Prime Minister is "silent" on various issues which include alleged Vyapam scam, Vijay Mallya case and "Lalitgate".

"2 years ago u promised corruption-free governance but are silent (like Manmohan ji) on Vyapam, Lalitgate, mallya,
khadse, (sic)" Kejriwal tweeted.

In another tweet, he said two years ago, the Prime Minister had promised that "Team India" will not be limited to
PM but include chief ministers, but he is "conspiring to destabilise CMs".

"2 years ago, you (PM) promised education for Dalits but remained silent on Rohith Vemula’s institutional murder...2 years ago, you promised new courts & doubling number of judges but even tears of the CJI haven't made you act.

"2 years ago u promised farmers minimum profit of 50% over input cost but despite thousands of suicides u refuse to
act,(sic)" CM wrote on Twitter.

He also alleged the Centre allowed liquor baron Vijay Mallya, who is facing investigation for defaulting on Rs 9,000 crore worth bank loans, to flee the country.

"2 years ago u promised to reduce Non Performing Assets of Banks but allowed defaulter Vijay Mallya to flee from India, (sic)" he tweeted.

"Dear PM sir, everyone feeling insecure. Even senior women journos facing filthiest abuses n serious threats by those who u follow,(sic)" Kejriwal also wrote on Twitter.
