Kejriwal Takes Punjab Line in Himachal, Attacks BJP And Congress for Loot

Virtually kicking off the party’s campaign for the year-end Himachal Pradesh assembly elections from the BJP chief minister Jai Ram Thakur’s home turf, AAP (Aam Aadmi Party) chief Arvind Kejriwal and Punjab CM Bhagwant Mann held an impressive roadshow in Mandi, announcing the party’s arrival in the political arena of the state.

Arvind Kejriwal said AAP has undertaken development in Delhi and will do the same now in Punjab state.

Accusing the BJP and Congress of promoting dynastic politics, Kejriwal said AAP is a party of the common man with the sole objective of development.

The roadshow with the song ‘Mera Rang de Basanti Chola’ took place from Victoria Bridge to Seri Manch, where a public meeting was conducted. This rally termed ‘Tiranga Yatra’, marked the entry of AAP into the state’s political spectrum with supporters waving the tricolor.

Even though no big face from the Congress or BJP joined AAP on the occasion, the gathering in the home area of Jai Ram Thakur was impressive. Political observers said that the roadshow had given the party the kind of momentum it was expecting in the poll-bound state.

AAP has already made its intentions clear of contesting the polls in Himachal Pradesh due later this year by fielding candidates from all the 68 assembly segments.
