- Arvind Kejriwal did a road show in Himachal Pradesh’s Mandi on Wednesday.
- Punjab CM Bhagwant Mann was also present.
- Citing the recent victory of Punjab as an example, Kejriwal called for a ‘revolution’ in Himachal Pradesh.
Aam Aadmi Party’s national convener Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday held a roadshow in Himachal Pradesh’s Mandi, where he called for ‘revolution’, citing Punjab’s recent victory. Newly appointed CM of Punjab Bhagwant Mann was with him during the roadshow. Praising Mann’s leadership, Kejriwal claimed that corruption ended in Punjab in just 20 days since Mann took over as the chief minister.
“We are common people, we don’t know how to do politics. Instead, we know to work for the people, build schools and end corruption. We have eradicated corruption in Punjab in just 20 days since Bhagwant Mann became the CM. Now ‘Kranti’ should happen in Himachal Pradesh also.” Kejriwal said.
With the AAP wanting to come to power in the third state, Kejriwal claimed corruption needed to be eradicated from Himachal Pradesh, “like the AAP did in Delhi and Punjab.”
Mandi is the home constituency of the current Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur. Elections are due in Gujarat as well as Himachal later this year. At the same time, AAP has also announced to contest Shimla Municipal Corporation elections.
This is the first time that AAP has entered the hill state where it has been a long-standing contest between two parties (BJP and Congress).
