As elections draw closer, AAP claims overwhelming response

New Delhi: As Assembly elections near in Delhi, political parties are leaving no stone unturned to present their case in front of the citizens of the national capital. On the eighth foundation day of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Tuesday, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had launched a campaign “Kejriwal Phir Se.”

The campaign has received an overwhelming response as more than 20,000 volunteers have joined the “Kejriwal Phir Se” campaign by giving a missed call at 9509 997 997 or by registering at www.KejriwalPhirSe.in.

The election campaign seemed to have started on a positive note. Enthused by the response from the people, Kejriwal wrote on Twitter, “In the last 24 hours, 20,000 volunteers have joined the 'Kejriwal Phir Se' campaign. You can also join it by giving a missed call at 9509-997-997.”

Clarifying that the campaign is not intended to attain crown, Kejriwal said that if he gets elected again, people-centric reforms such as free travel for women, free pilgrimage for senior citizens, Farishtey scheme for road accident victims, free medicine at hospitals and establishment of mohalla clinics would continue in the next tenure.

The popularity of the party ahead of the elections seemed to have increased with the participation of a good number of volunteers. Among the new volunteers, 12,7000 people are from Delhi whereas 7,300 people are from other states.

The newly-joined volunteers will be working towards spreading the good work of the party. In fact, AAP volunteers have started interacting with people at busy places such as bus stops, intersections and even residential colonies.
