Vote for AAP because we worked for development: CM to people
Mevani, Prakash Raj, Dr Kafeel Khan campaign for Atishi in East Delhi
NEW DELHI: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday held a roadshow for West Delhi candidate Balbir Singh Jakhar. The road show was held at the Dwarka in presence of local MLAs and other leaders. This was held a day after the Chief Minister was slapped by a person in a roadshow in North East Delhi. For the Sunday rally, the security for the Delhi CM was increased by the police.
In the roadshow, the Chief Minister urged the people to vote for the Aam Aadmi Party because they have worked for the development of Delhi. The CM also warned the people and urged not to vote for the Congress party.
Meanwhile, Gujarat MLA Jignesh Mevani and Kannada actor Prakash Raj campaigned for AAP's East Delhi candidate Atishi on Sunday, a party leader said. Kafeel Khan, whose name surfaced in the death case of 63 children at Gorakhpur's BRD Medical College, also campaigned in East Delhi for Atishi.
The AAP claimed Khan was hailed as a "hero" for arranging jumbo oxygen cylinders to save dying kids. "The fabulous results of 94.24 per cent students passing in the XII board exams this year is a lasting legacy of her work in government schools." tweeted Mevani.
In another tweet, he wrote, "In East Delhi with AAP's candidate Atishi. This is AAP's candidate and the people's. She is working being between you, and wishes to work for your benefit. No caste, no religion - press the button on work."
Mevani also addressed a gathering at Old Seemapuri where he said, "I came here from Gujarat to support your candidate Atishi. I come from Gujarat but I am not a lier and I speak truth." Mevni attacked PM Narendra Modi and explained why it is important this election to defeat Modi-Shah regime.
Actor-turned-politician Prakash Raj will campaign for the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in Delhi for a week. Raj began his campaign from the Northeast Lok Sabha constituency on Saturday evening with a meeting in support of AAP candidate Dilip Pandey at Babarpur. On Sunday, he campaigned for Atishi in East Delhi.
"AAP is fighting elections on the issues of health, education, their vision, and based on their work. I am here to support such candidates, such party, which is fighting for a change in this election compared to other parties," he said.
"This is what we need. This is my gesture and my belief that different people with different thought processes but love for the country need to come together to reclaim our republic, which is on the verge –and which we may lose –with the onslaught of communal and hate politics of the government that is in place," he added.
Meanwhile, Dr Khan praised Atishi and said, " We want to see that people like Atishi is going to Parliament. Here the fight is between Atishi and BJP's Gautam Gambhir, therefore, do not ever do the mistake of choosing BJP because they have shattered the democracy of India."
