Kejriwal in Mumbai

During his two-hour road show here, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal didn’t disappoint the modest crowd, largely comprising youth and the working class.

The show, which began with a hero’s welcome for Kejriwal at the historic August Kranti Maidan in south Mumbai, with shouts of Vande Mataram and Desh ka neta kaisa ho…Arvind Kejriwal jaisa ho, sought to promote party candidate and former banker Meera Sanyal.

As the vehicle carrying Kejriwal and other AAP leaders made its way towards Khilafat House in Nagpada, many supporters joined the cavalcade. While some were busy clicking pictures, a few rushed forward to shake hands with the AAP chief.

At busy Lamington Road, Kejriwal interacted with many supporters. Amin Sayyed, a 25-year-old supporter, hugged Kejriwal and said he would mobilise adequate support for the AAP, as he believed the party was the need of the hour. Another youth said he had high expectations from Kejriwal, adding the country needed a change.

In a short but spirited speech, Kejriwal exhorted his followers to be a part of what he called the “second freedom struggle”. He alleged corruption had scaled new highs and the aam aadmi’s issues weren’t addressed on a priority basis. Amid cheers, Kejriwal asked his supporters to help bring a change. “The fight is against corruption, and your vote is your weapon,” he said. more  

Seema, thanks for the regular updates on AAP's activities. There is some food for thought in the Editorial of today's Hindustan Times (Mumbai) issue on page 10. I suggest all AAP members read it and take corrective measures on two important issues raised in it - unruly behaviour of our "karyakartas" and haste to expand the party base which is leading to induction of unsavoury and opportunistic elements. more  
There should be some control on media as they arte giving negative view . But people know what they have to do in the election. Results will be a slap on Media same as happened in Delhi. more
