Day after coronation Kejriwal fans keep trickling in
A day after the swearing-in ceremony, Girnar apartment in Kaushambi had its usual quota of hangers-on even as Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal tried getting back to routine life. During his morning walk, which he resumed from the day after the elections were held, he obliged fans by posing for selfies. However, later in the day a few protestors showed up demanding action against demolition of their jhuggis. Later in the day, senior party leaders called on their leader to check on his health. The chief minister, except for the morning walk, preferred to stay indoors.
When Arvind Kejriwal and his wife were on their morning walk, droves of people from nearby areas accosted them for selfies and clicks. During the walk, Kejriwal was also seen discussing local issues, inquiring about people’s problems along with other activities. The CM also met with the senior party leaders including Manish Sisodia and Aashish Khetan at his residence and it was said that the party leaders had come to check on his health. “As Kejriwal was unwell for the past few days, I have come here to see him. It was a personal visit where no serious matter was discussed,” said Khetan while talking with the media persons.
Though Kejriwal has sworn as Delhi Chief Minister on Saturday, his well wishers from various parts of the country were seen trickling in even on Sunday. With flower bouquets and sweets, the visitors were seen making a beeline to meet Arvind Kejriwal and to greet him on his elevation.
“Kejriwal had impressed us during his election campaign in Varanasi which inspired us to come and congratulate him after his anointment. We have not met the CM yet but hopefully we will meet him soon, said Aafid Irshad of Varanasi.
SM Sharma, an ayurvedic doctor and resident of Jaipur (Rajasthan), was spotted with some medicines in his hand. Sharma (70) had come for offering treatment to Kejriwal after media reports of his prolonged illness.
“As per the reports, Kejriwal is not well these days, being a successful practitioner, I decided to come and offer treatment free of cost as Kejriwal is an asset for the nation,” said Sharma. People from Maharashtra, Punjab, Haryana and other parts of Uttar Pradesh were also seen in the area.
