Vikram Dantani, an autorickshaw driver who made headlines when he drove Delhi Chief Minister and AAP Supremo Arvind Kejriwal–extends his support to BJP. After dining with the Delhi CM, now, the 27-year old claims to be a “fan of PM Narendra Modi”.
The Ghatlodia resident was recently seen at PM Modi’s rally, wearing a BJP sash and a saffron cap. He said “I have been a fan of Modiji since the time I started voting. I invited Kejriwal casually and wasn’t expecting him to turn up. When he accepted my invitation, I fed him as I didn’t want to insult him. It was a casual invitation and I am not associated with AAP. I have always been associated with BJP. Our entire society supports BJP.” He also added that he hailed from Dantaniwas locality, a traditional bastion of the BJP. Dantani said a bus full of people from Dantaninagar had come to PM Modi’s rally today.
PM Modi is on a two-day visit to Gujarat to inaugurate various development projects in Bhavnagar, Surat, Ahmedabad, Gandhinagar etc.
On September 13, Kejriwal addressed a gathering of auto rickshaw drivers in Gujarat city where one of them invited him home for dinner.
On this occasion, Vikram Dantani asked “I’m your big fan. I saw a video on social media of you having dinner at the home of an auto driver in Punjab. Will you come to my home as well for dinner?”
To this, Kejriwal agreed and even visited him for dinner. He was accompanied by several AAP leaders when he travelled to Dattani’s home in his three-wheeler.
After dinner, Kejriwal said, “I accepted the invitation of the auto driver to eat dinner at his home. I also met his family and the food tasted like home. I have invited his entire family to Delhi as his wife is from here.”
