Stay in BJP, but work for AAP internally: Arvind Kejriwal to BJP workers in Gujarat
On Saturday, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal appealed to all Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers in Gujarat to work for his Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) while staying in the BJP. He says that his party does not need BJP leaders but advised them to work for his party.
The Delhi CM said BJP workers should continue to get “payment” from the ruling party but work for AAP “from inside”. While addressing a press conference in Rajkot on the final day of his two-day visit to poll-bound Gujarat, Kejriwal said BJP workers would be from all the promises made by him to people when his party becomes the ruling party in the state.
“We do not want BJP leaders. The BJP can keep its leaders. BJP’s ‘panna pramukhs’, workers in villages, booths and talukas are joining us in droves. I would like to ask them what the BJP gave them in return for their service in the party even after so many years?” the AAP chief said.
Kejriwal also added that BJP did not promise free and quality education, healthcare and electricity to BJP workers and their family members, but his party will take care of their wellbeing. “You (BJP workers) can stay in that party but work for AAP. Many of them get paid (by BJP), so take the payment from there but work for us, because we do not have money,” Kejriwal added.
