In Gujarat for a two-day assessment and prep work of ground realities before the Assembly elections in December, Delhi chief minister and AAP leader addressed a massive gathering of party workers at Naroda Mewada Green Party Plot in Ahmedabad, Sunday.
Among his big ticket assurance was the promise of free electricity in Gujarat. “If the AAP party can do so in Delhi and Punjab, then why not in Gujarat?” he roared to a thundering applause. Kejriwal also outlaid the plans to develop Gujarat in accordance with the dreams of Mahatma Gandhi and Sardar Patel.
In a significant move, AAP inducted 6,988 party workers into its fold. A public oath of allegiance was conducted with Kejriwal leading the ceremony. Reiterating that the AAP has bigger organisation than Congress, he urged the gathering to give his party a chance, while imploring “not to waste a single vote on the Congress.” The new party workers were required to pledge loyalty to the party and to the country.
Firebrand AAP leader Isudan Gadhvi, also present at the meet, charged BJP leaders with being “so scared of AAP that now their dreams have turned into nightmares.”
Addressing the gathering, Kejriwal added: “In the next one month, AAP will strengthen its core base before expansion begins. Electricity has been made free in Delhi and is available 24 hours. The best government schools and hospitals of the country are available in Delhi today. We envisage the same for Gujarat.”
