On day two of Arvind Kejriwal’s visit to Punjab, the Aam Aadmi Party chief told villagers in Talwandi Sabo to bargain for at least Rs 4,000 per vote from rival parties but vote for ‘honesty’ and AAP.

Kejriwal was seen repeating these lines in almost all the villages in Talwandi Sabo where he along with other leaders organised a day long road show in support of Prof Baljinder Kaur, who is contesting on AAP ticket for the assembly bypoll.

When AAP supporters in Bhagi Vander village claimed that a few parties gifted motorcycles in return for votes, Kejriwal asked them to accept such gifts, “but vote for the future of your kids” and think about what their vote to SAD or Congress had repaid them in the past.

Kejriwal also spoke in great detail about his work as Delhi CM.  “In our 49 days in government, police had stopped taking money, corruption had been wiped out from government offices, and the same will happen in Punjab once we are to power in 2017,” said Kejriwal.

Later on, Kejriwal in Jeewan Singh Wala village said “this bypoll will just be the film trailer of 2017 Vidhan Sabha elections. So vote and show the seasoned parties what are you predicting for 2017.”

He said the mood in Patiala and Talwandi Sabo was favourable to AAP and boasted that the party, like they did in New Delhi, will script a new story yet again.

Kejriwal was full of praise for Sangrur MP Bhagwant Mann for his focused attack on SAD and revenue Minister Bikramjit Singh Majithia. He will conclude his campaign in Talwandi Sabo tomorrow.

    AK49 will never change his way of political existence. He is like Congress sycophants and their RSVP dynasty never learn from loss.
