New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convener Arvind Kejriwal on his Gujarat tour appealed to BJP workers not to leave the BJP party and work for AAP from within. Kejriwal said in Rajkot that BJP workers should keep getting paid from BJP. He said that BJP workers will benefit if his party comes to power in Gujarat.
Kejriwal asks BJP workers what do you get for your service
Arvind Kejriwal said that BJP’s Panna Pramukh, workers of villages, booths and talukas are joining us in large numbers. I want to ask him what did the BJP give him in return for his service? He said, “You (BJP workers) can stay in that party but you can work for the party. Many of them get paid from BJP, so take payment from there but work for us, as we don’t have money.”
Kejriwal promised good quality education, healthcare and free electricity to the people of the state and said that the BJP did not provide these facilities to his workers and their families, but the AAP party will.
Kejriwal made these promises
Kejriwal said that when we form the government, we will give you 24 hours free electricity and build good schools for your children where they will get free education. AAP party will ensure free and quality treatment for every family member and women in your family will be given Rs 1,000 as allowance.
Appealing to the BJP workers, the Delhi Chief Minister said that there is no point in continuing in the BJP after 27 years of rule and working for their victory again. Kejriwal raised the issue of recent attack on Gujarat AAP general secretary Manoj Sorathia and feared that there would be many more attacks on the people of Gujarat for supporting AAP. “The attack on Manoj Sorathia shows that the BJP is desperate. Don’t know what to do.”
AAP is not like Congress
Kejriwal said that the AAP is not like the Congress and will not be afraid of the ruling party. Challenging the ruling BJP, he said, “You have dealt with the Congress till now, but we are the people of the AAP party. We consider Sardar Patel and Bhagat Singh as our idols.” Kejriwal said that if the BJP thinks that it can intimidate the AAP party and its leaders by doing such attacks, then it is wrong.
‘We are not cowards’: Kejriwal
Kejriwal said that we are not afraid. We are not mad. We will fight hard against injustice and corruption. Six crore people of Gujarat now have an option (in AAP). They will answer the 27 years of BJP’s misrule. He appealed to the people not to resort to violence.
‘Attack on AAP leaders will increase in 2-3 months’: Kejriwal
AAP national convener said that I want to tell the people that in the coming 2-3 months the number of attacks on AAP leaders will increase. They will also attack those who say they will vote for the AAP party. Those who speak against BJP can also be attacked. He said that people should not resort to violence but be patient and express their anger by pressing the (EVM) button to oust the BJP.
