The complainant had alleged that in 2013 he was approached by volunteers of AAP who had asked him to contest the Delhi Assembly elections on a party ticket, saying Kejriwal was pleased with his social services. However, he was denied the ticket.
Yogendra Yadav, president of Swaraj India, said, “This is a desperate measure to buy the farmers’ votes by transferring Rs 2,000 to their accounts before the election... Farmers will surely reject this dishonourable bargain.”
"It was felt that the BJP's defeat in the recent state elections might force it to take some concrete steps in the budget on these issues. Sadly, it hasn't happened and has disappointed farmers again," said Ajit Nawale, Maharashtra general secretary of All India Kisan Sabha (AIKS).
The politician, who spearheaded a massive farmers' protest at the Ramlila Maidan here recently, prophesied that the result of the 2019 polls will be similar to the election held after the Emergency in which the Indira Gandhi regime was uprooted.
