BJP creating divisions in society: Kejriwal in AAP-JJP roadshow
Gurugram: In less than a day when Aam Aadmi party and Jan Nayak Janta Paty held the first roadshow together in Faridabad on Sunday, they were back again on the roads of Haryana on Tuesday. This time the roadshow was held in Sonepat, Kurukshetra and Karnal. Those who were present in the roadshow included AAP national convenor Arvind Kejriwal, JJP Chief Dushyant Chautala, AAP Haryana state president and Faridabad candidate Naveen Jaihind and AAP MP Sushil Gupta. The roadshow began from Sonepat Lok Sabha constituency.
The significance of Sonepat Lok Sabha seat can be gauged from the fact that JJP has fielded Digvijay Chautala, the younger brother of Dushyant Chautala. 29-year-old Digvijay is the great-grandson of late Devi Lal who is the former deputy Prime Minister and former Chief Minister of Haryana.
In January this year, Digvijay had fought his first general elections from Jind where he had come second. Fighting from the same seat of Sonepat is Bhupinder Singh Hooda, former Chief Minister of Haryana. Addressing the crowd and the party workers, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal accused the BJP of creating divisions in the society and urged the public to vote for AAP-JJP if they wanted clean governance.
Dushyant Chautala highlighted how the government at the Centre as well as the state was unable to provide employment opportunities to the youth of Haryana. He also raised the issue of agrarian distress and how the situation had gone worse due to the ignorance of the farmers by the government. "Our candidate, our alliance will stand for every member of the society. So whether that be Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, Christian, jat, Punjabis and Dalit. It is important for the BJP government to be thrown or they will destroy the state of Haryana," said Naveen Jaihind.
AAP and JJP formed an alliance for the Lok Sabha polls. In the pact, while AAP will contest three seats of Haryana namely Faridabad, Karnal and Ambala, the JJP has fielded its candidates in the rest of the seven seats. JJP has been launched by former Haryana chief minister Om Prakash Chautala's grandson Dushyant Chautala after he broke off from the Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) a few months back.
