Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convener Arvind Kejriwal stormed into Talwandi Sabo with a long motorcade following him in villages of the constituency where he addressed several small rallies standing on a small truck on Monday.

To connect with the rural crowd, he would start his speeches at the rallies with 'Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh' to conclude it with 'Bole so Nihal Sat Sri Akal'.

A group of youths with Bhagat Singh-style turbans on their heads were surrounding him. Kejriwal would ask in every village, "Who sells drugs in Punjab?" Turbaned youths around him would reply 'Majithia'.

Kejriwal will repeat this slogan for four or five times so that locals could be inspired to answer the slogan.

Kejriwal also told people to take money for their votes from others and vote for AAP.

"There is nothing wrong in looting people. They will give you Rs 1,000 for every vote. But ask them to pay Rs 4,000 for a single vote because inflation has crossed all limits. You must take money from them because, ultimately, it is your money that they have grabbed by certain means. But, you must vote for AAP so that Congress and SAD should not fool you again and again," said Kejriwal.

Many people were also seen taking the autograph of Kejriwal on the caps distributed by the party cadres. Many people were coming to see if he was the same Kejriwal to whom they used to see on TV.

Kejriwal also told his audience that everyone should inspire 10 more people to vote for AAP.

AAP MP Bhagwant Mann, Jarnail Singh, Sucha Singh Chottepur were also delivering speeches during the road show of Kejriwal.

Kejriwal's visit also kept SAD and Congress workers on toes analysing the possible impact of AAP in the constituency.
