Making an appeal to voters in Gujarat, Aam Aadmi Party national convenor and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday asked people in that State to vote for any party other than the ruling-BJP.
Speaking at the party’s national convention at Ramlila Maidan here on its fifth anniversary, Mr. Kejriwal said: “If the AAP is winning, then vote for the AAP candidate. If somewhere else another party is winning, vote for them. Defeating BJP is our goal.”
Later, Mr. Kejriwal also tweeted that he appealed to the people in Gujarat to not let their votes get divided. Meanwhile, earlier in his speech, he said that the BJP had turned out to be more corrupt than the Congress, against which the anti-corruption movement that led to the formation of AAP was started.
“Even judges are not safe in their rule. A few days ago we learned that Judge Loya who was hearing the Amit Shah case was found dead under mysterious circumstances... The whole country is fed up. GST and demonetisation broke their backs... Everyone is looking towards Gujarat and praying that the BJP loses,” he said.
