AAP to Go Solo in Haryana, Join INDIA Bloc for LS: Kejriwal

Arvind Kejriwal announces dual strategy at 'Badlaav Jansabha' in Chandigarh.
NEW DELHI: Delhi chief minister and AAP national convenor Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday said his party will contest all the 90 Assembly seats in Haryana on its own, but the Lok Sabha polls will be fought as part of the INDIA bloc.

The Lok Sabha polls are due in April-May while the Assembly elections are due in October.

Targeting the BJP-led Centre, the Delhi chief minister accused it of using all its might to arrest him and said he is not scared of going to jail.

"I am Lord Ram’s and Lord Hanuman's follower. With inspiration from 'Ram Rajya', we are running our administration in Delhi and Punjab. We are not here for power, but
to serve," he said.

"Today people only have trust in one party, which is the AAP. On one side, they see Punjab, and on the other, our government in Delhi. Today Haryana is seeking a big
change. In Delhi and Punjab, people made this big change earlier and now people there are happy," Mr Kejriwal said at his party's 'Badlaav Jansabha' in Haryana's
Jind. Punjab chief minister Bhagwant Mann was also present at the event.

The AAP supremo said Haryana is looking for a "big change" as the people of the state are "fed up" with all the other parties that have ruled here.
"Only the AAP can provide round-the-clock power supply and other facilities to people as it has done in Delhi and Punjab," Mr Kejriwal said. "Can the Congress, the BJP and the JJP do this? They cannot. Only the AAP can do this," he added.
"There used to be seven to eight hours power cuts daily earlier in Delhi and Punjab, but now the people are getting round-the-clock power supply. In Haryana too, we will
end your power cuts," Mr Kejriwal said.

"I am an engineer, educated, wise, I am not illiterate and my degree is also real. I know how to do things, I will make the power available round-the-clock," he added.

He said the AAP's fault is that it wants to change the country's education, health system, provide free medicines and treatment to poor, end corruption and give free
power. Reacting to the Delhi CM’s tall claims, the BJP said, Mr Kejriwal seems to have become the "maha thug" in the "thug gathbandhan" (alliance) of the Opposition and wants to politically thug Congress in the name of alliance.
