From dance to street plays and bike rallies, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) workers are going all out to gather support of youngsters for a parivartan rally to be addressed by Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal in Bhopal on December 20.
This will be Kejriwal’s maiden visit to Madhya Pradesh as the chief minister of Delhi. The AAP’s state unit is organising a series of events to attract people, especially youngsters, for the rally to be held at Dussehra Maidan, Chhola Mandir.
“We are making people aware of Kejriwal’s rally by organising events such as dance for democracy, street plays and bike rallies in different part of the state,” said Akshya Hunka, general secretary of AAP.
“We are getting good support of youngsters and we are expecting participation of about 50,000 people in the rally,” he said.
He said AAP leaders were also coordinating with the administration and the police to ensure security for Kejriwal, especially after Kerala chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan’s unpleasant experience during his recent visit to Bhopal. Pinarayi was not allowed to attend a programme due to security reasons.
“We don’t want any repetition of unfortunate incident that happened with the Kerala CM. So, we have requested the administration to provide foolproof security to Kejriwal, said AAP’s state convenor Alok Agrawal.
He said the rally would expose the truth of the BJP-led state government so they can do anything to stop it.
The rally will focus on demonetisation and 2018 state assembly election.
“Demonetisation is the biggest scam of India. The AAP will reveal the truth. Besides inconvenience to common people, there are other factors that will go against the development of our country due to demonetisation,” said Agrawal.
He said the Congress had lost its sheen as an opposition party in Madhya Pradesh.
“Common people are facing inconveniences due to the BJP-led state government’s decision and autocratic behaviour of the chief minister. The change is must in MP,” said Agrawal.
