Others top party leaders, including Yogendra Yadav, Manish Sisodia and Kumar Vishwas would accompany Kejriwal during his first state-level rally after quitting the Delhi government.
Party sources said Haryana is different from Delhi and issues, concerns and challenges for the rookie party here were different than their debut experience in national capital. "Inflation, rampant corruption, favouritism in jobs, unemployment, SEZ, change of land use, regionalism, dynasty politics, right compensation of agricultural land to farmers would remain on the top agenda of Kejriwal," said a local leader.
He added that other issues, which would be highlighted are the alleged harassment of senior IAS officer Ashok Khemka by the statement government for being upright in exposing scams.
In a press conference on Saturday, Navin Jaihind, party's national executive member, said, "This is the rally of AAP, so things would be different than established parties like crop garland would replace currency garland for leaders welcome, all participants would be made to sit on floor no chairs were arranged for anyone".
He said that over 1000 volunteers would arrange the mass gathering and traffic management for the smooth conduct of rally and all activities would be monitored through 100 CCTV cameras. He said that six desks have been created at the rally for anyone wanting to share some information related to corrupt practices, offer donation, give feedback or suggestion to empower the fledgling party.
Notably, the rally would set the tone of upcoming Lok Sabha polls in the state.
