Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal urged BJP President Amit Shah not to disrupt his rally due here on Sunday evening. “I have learnt that Amit Shah is trying various methods to scuttle the rally,” the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader told the media here. “He is sending his people to different places (where I go) to stage protests,” Kejriwal added.

“I appeal to Amit Shah that today’s rally is not my rally. It is a rally of the Gujarat people and I request him not to put any impediments.” Asked about the arrival of a Delhi Police team here to arrest Delhi legislator Gulab Singh, the party in-charge of Gujarat, Kejriwal said it showed the BJP was scared of the AAP.

He said Delhi Police had arrested 13 AAP legislators in the national capital so far on various charges. Meanwhile, AAP legislator Gulab Singh reached a police station here to offer himself for arrest. Kejriwal is due to address an AAP rally in Surat along with party leader Kumar Vishwas.

    How frustrating for people in Delhi to have voted this person. He can't manage Delhi and wants to be everywhere. Now he is trying to appease the Patidars in Gujarat, and trying to destabilize Gujarat. Can you trust a politician whose focus is destruction, and not construction? Half his team is facing charges. God give him some brains.

        before Delhi election where AK was the candidate for the first time he waived a lot of papers that he has evidence of corruption against the now former CM Sheilla Dixit. AK publicly promised that he will charge Dixit for corruption, if elected. after becoming CM he did not take any action even in his second term. AK publicly supported his former Law Minister Tomar who was charged with fake degree and blamed Modi for arresting Tomar. AK ped his judgement without waiting for court's verdict. now Tomar is serving time after court verdict against Tomar. AK could not work with his Power Secretary and made public allegations of corruption against her. But he did not take any action! just think Why? AK is the first India's CM who is a CM without Portfolio enjoying all the benefits without any accountability because if anything does not work it is someone else fault or Modi's fault. Before Delhi elections AK encouraged people to use electricity but not to pay the bills promising that if elected to power he will waive of their bills i.e. AK was encouraging lawlessness. Think before voting for such a party. there are criminal cases against AAP MLAs for ault and extortion. There is a criminal case against AK for defamation. the list goes on. evaluate AAP government performance in Delhi before voting. BTW the Delhi AAP MLAs gave themselves 400% increase in compensation just in one shot at tax payers expense.

        Its hard to believe Delhi elected this man. So much for an elected government with a huge mandate. It was a great opportunity to showcase your competence to the country given it is the national capital and that has not happened.

          Kejri was people's choice for his differentiator. An IITian with a goal to clean the system. With time, he is losing ground. New generation is waiting for the Lalu/Yadav/Goigoi's to go out of the system and looking for new leadership with unifying attributes. By Kejri has started giving sides to divisive forces for his own survival. Quota politics is one of the instrument, Congress was playing with since long. Kejri is trying to revive that in Gujrat. Sad for Bharat. But, if Bharat is destined to grow,either these forces will change their intent and behavior or they will perish with time.
