AAP likely to hold mega opposition rally in February
NEW DELHI: As promised by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is likely to arrange a rally of all the non-BJP parties in Delhi, the AAP is likely to hold the rally at Ram Lila Maidan in February. Internal sources said that CM Kejriwal as the party convenor will start sending the invitation to the leaders soon. "The Chief Minister has raised the matter inside the party and also asked the senior leaders to decide about the possible timing and date of the rally. The party will decide on the matter after discussing with all the like-minded parties," said a leader. The speculation about inviting the Congress party is also going around the party members. "We have already announced that the party will not make an alliance with the Congress. The rally which we are discussing here will not be an AAP rally but a non-BJP forces' rally. The top leaders of our party and other parties will take the call," said a senior leader.
Meanwhile, on Saturday Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was present at the rally called by TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee in Kolkata. In that meeting, he promised Banerjee to hold a meeting in Delhi. However, in the Kolkata mega leaders of the Congress party were present. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal from that rally said the country would disintegrate if the BJP returned to power in the next general elections and called for overthrowing the saffron party.
He called on the people to vote out the BJP to save the country from its divisive politics that he said have endangered the country and pushed it to the edge of a precipice. CM Kejriwal also criticised Modi for following many people on Twitter who spew venom.
"I ashamed that the Prime Minister of my country follows people on Twitter who abuse women, Dalits or make hate speeches." He was one of the major draws at the rally where many opposition leaders from different parts of the country converged to kick start the opposition's campaign for the general elections.
