AAP promised food, cash for attending rally but we got nothing: Labourers

26 March 2018

On Sunday, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) was caught on the wrong foot after a group of labourers on camera alleged that the party promised to pay each one of them Rs 350 and food to attend Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal's rally in Hisar, Haryana.

According to the labourers, they had been promised Rs 350 and food in exchange for attending Kejriwal's rally in Haryana, but after the rally, they were not paid. Giving a call for a political revolution from Hisar, Mr. Kejriwal, who belongs to the district's Siwani village, said it was his motherland and he would do what "Modi (Prime Minister Narendra Modi) had failed to do in three years". He also promised farmers to implement the Swaminathan committee recommendations for their betterment.

Yesterday, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has confirmed that the party is all set to contest next state elections in Haryana. Raising the issue of Minimum Support Price, he said the Haryana government had not procured a single seed of mustard crop at the government rate so far.

The labourers said that they felt cheated after the AAP did not give them anything even after they took part in the Delhi CM's public meeting. Speaking at the rally on Sunday, Kejriwal hit out at the previous Bhupinder Singh Hooda government and the current Manohar Lal Khattar government in Haryana. The Chief Minister pointed out the progress of schools, colleges and hospitals under their government and said that Haryana will also see the same progress if the party gets elected.

Kejriwal added that AAP was ready to work for a Delhi-like miracle in Haryana.
