Gujarat Election: Arvind Kejriwal said – Diamond traders of Surat should get Bharat Ratna

face: Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convenor Arvind Kejriwal on Monday said diamond traders and jewelers from Gujarat’s Surat should be honored with the Bharat Ratna for their contribution to the country’s economy. Just two days before the first phase of polling in Gujarat, Kejriwal’s statement is being seen as an attempt to dent the traditional stronghold of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). Kejriwal visited a diamond cutting unit and interacted with businessmen and workers to understand their issues.

Kejriwal said, ‘Today a large number of diamond traders and workers are present here. I want to tell all of you that you are not only the pride of the country but of the whole world. One-third of the world’s diamonds are manufactured and exported from Surat. You make diamonds, but in my eyes you are all diamonds. Kejriwal further said that he has heard that diamond merchants face difficulties in getting work done by the government. The AAP leader said, ‘This should not be a problem as according to me diamond traders and jewelers of Surat should be honored with Bharat Ratna. You are contributing to the country’s economy and doing such a good job for the country.
