Rohtak: Kejriwal launches AAP's LS polls campaign
Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal launched his outfit's campaign for the upcoming Lok Sabha polls by holding a rally at Rohtak in Haryana on Sunday.
He attacked the Congress and the BJP, saying both political parties were corrupt and were ignoring the needs of the common man.
Kejriwal also attacked Reliance Industries Limited chief Mukesh Ambani, saying he had the support of the political parties because he was “giving money to them”
“I wrote to Narendra Modi asking what his stand was on the gas pricing issue. He did not respond to my letter. Will he respond to the queries of the public? I also wrote to Rahul Gandhi, asking why his government was supporting Reliance. I did not get any reply from him either,” Kejriwal said.
“Narendra Modi and Rahul Gandhi use helicopters for their rallies. Where do they get the money for so many choppers?” Kejriwal said.
Kejriwal, who recently resigned as the Delhi chief minister, hails from Haryana, the Congress-ruled state where the AAP is looking to expand its base.
