Kejriwal makes in roads into ‘Dera’, addresses congregation inside

“Political leaders have long been visiting the Deras of Punjab. But they only pay obeisance and have a chat with sect head are not given the opportunity to address the congregation inside. Breaking all the protocol, Kejirwal managed to address the congregation inside the most prominent dera of Punjab.”

Dera Sachkhand Ballan in Jullandhar district of Punjab

On his recent tour to Punjab with an aim to woo dalit vote bank, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) supremo has been visiting all the prominent ‘deras’ of the state. Enjoying a vast follower base, many of the political leaders try to milk the huge vote bank with the help of ‘deras’.

A politician visiting the ‘dera’ is nothing new but they only pay obeisance at the ‘dera’ or have brief chat with sect head but Arvind Kejriwal being the master manipulator managed to address the congregation inside ‘Dera Sachkhand Ballan’ at Jullandhar district.


Appropriates Dalit legacy of Kanshi Ram

Eyeing dalit vote bank in Punjab, Arvind Kejriwal sought to appropriate the legacy of Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) founder Kanshi Ram with a visit to his birthplace in Rupnagar. In neighboring SBS Nagar (Nawanshahr), BSP supremo Mayawati appeared around two hours later at a rally held to mark Kanshi Ram’s birth anniversary.

It also took personal turns as Kejriwal addressed his host, Kanshi Ram’s sister Swaran Kaur, as ‘bhua’ (father’s sister). It must be noted that a ‘tug of war’ took place between Mayawati and Kejriwal to catch hold of Kanshi Ram’s sister. Kejriwal managed to have her on his side on the official function held to mark the birth anniversary of Kanshi Ram at Rupnagar.

Ahead of assembly polls, Kejriwal is going all out garner sympathy of dalit voters. From making inroads into ‘Dera’ to hijacking Kanshi Ram’s birth anniversary celebration, he has left no stone unturned to influence dalits in Punjab.


Kejriwal openly “begged” money from NRI’s


When the Chief Minister of Delhi left his own state in lurch during the water crisis for political holidays in Punjab, it was evident that Kejriwal had some motive of his Punjab tour.

The main motive of the AAP national convenor was clear during his five days Punjab tour. Arvind Kejriwal had visited different parts of the state but he did not miss the chance to visit in Doaba region.

The region has given the maximum funding to the party in a span of three years. Even it was announced by the independent educational groups that the party has received maximum funding from abroad as compare to the other political parties.

AK attended a meeting of NRI’s at Phagwara

Kejriwal had attended a meeting of NRI’s at Chiheru village near Phagwara jointly organised by India Canada village improvement trust President G S Gill and Canada’s former cabinet minister Herb Dhaliwal. In that meeting, NRI’s from other countries were also present.

The Chief Minister of Delhi asked them to help the party in Punjab polls and if AAP forms the government, he allured them that the NRI’s would get “Proper Platform” in the state.

He urged them to donate money for the party as the party is entirely dependent on funding from abroad.

He begged in front of NRI’s


Kejriwal shed crocodile tears in front of the NRI’s and said, “We are starved of funds. You have supported us in the past. Support us financially to contest 2017 assembly polls in Punjab.”

He has failed to do anything for Delhi and he promised NRI’s that Punjab will really be another California if AAP comes into power.

The Chief Minister of Delhi has mastered the art of making money and he did the same with NRI’s during his Punjab visit. He promised them to provide good atmosphere in Punjab for investment if AAP wins 2017 polls.


He can do anything for money

The founding members of AAP who were expelled by the AAP national convenor Kejriwal said that they paid the price of speaking truth. One of the founding member who left Kejriwal because of his dictatorial attitude said, “He has nothing to do with the development. He is hungry for the votes only. If you give him any idea which can fetch him votes, he will accept it happily. If you talk about the money, he will never miss a chance to woo the richest voters.”
