NEW DELHI: Aam Aadmi Party convener Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday told party workers on Saturday that due to the works of the Delhi government in the last five years people look at AAP workers with respect.
“The biggest gain to the workers is the respect that they receive,” he said while interacting with a large group of party workers in Chhatarpur and Tughlaqabad, under an extended interaction programme through which the chief minister is giving poll-winning tips to them.
The interaction programme was launched on October 16 in Dwarka and Janakpuri, where Kejriwal asked his party workers to take three months’ break from work and utilise the time to prepare for the assembly elections. Under the initiative Kejrwial will give “guru mantras” to party workers across the city till October 24, with the concluding meet at Timarpur and Babarpur.
Kejriwal said that one party worker once asked him what he got from so many works like improvement in school infrastructure, free electricity, better hospitals, etc. “I wondered what would have happened if Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru had thought what would they gain by getting hanged (for freedom),” Kejriwal said.
“A huge number of people has benefited from our government’s works — all of them are our volunteers. You just need to connect with them,” Kejriwal told the workers. He said that a RSS worker, whose son studies in a government school, told him that the school has undergone transformation.
“Not voting for AAP is like betraying the country,” Kejriwal said adding that the works of the AAP government are being talked about all over the world. He termed the upcoming election as the second struggle for Independence.
