Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convener Arvind Kejriwal, along with party candidates Shakeel Anjum (Matia Mahal), Farhana Anjum (Ballimaran) and Vikram Badhwar (Chandni Chowk), campaigned in the Walled City area on Sunday.

As part of the party’s agenda of reaching out to Delhiites through its door-to-door campaign, Kejriwal and the others conducted the ‘padayatra’ and asked people about their problems and discussed possible solutions.

Kejriwal was welcomed with loud cheers when they reached the Jama Masjid area. Local residents and shopkeepers gathered to voice their concerns about rising electricity bills and poor water supply in the area.

He reiterated the promise of reducing electricity tariff and improving water supply if voted to power. Other problems from the area related to sewage, street lighting and primary education.

Narela rally a great success: AAP

Thousands of AAP supporters gathered to listen to Arvind Kejirwal and his party’s candidate from Narela Baljeet Singh Mann at the Metro Vihar area of Narela in northwest Delhi.

Promising to address issues such as high electricity tariff and poor water supply, Kejriwal told the rally on Sunday: “Congress and BJP are in collusion with power distribution companies due to which Delhiites are suffering. Because of this, electricity bills in Delhi are constantly going up.”

He promised to end the reign of the water tanker mafia and said AAP will take strict action against the tanker mafia when it comes to power.
