Delhi Chief Minister Arivnd Kejriwal has asked voters in Punjab has asked voters to take bribes from political parties for their votes, but to vote for the Aam Admi Party (AAP). The Election Commission of India (ECI) had earlier sent him a notice for making these comments, but he continued to make these comments and make his party victorious in the coming Punjab elections. He seemed confident about forming the next Government by winning the next elections with a absolute majority and having their own Chief Minister installed.
Mr. Kejriwal, who is also the National Convenor of the Aam Admi Party made these comments, while campaigning in Chandigarh. He asked voters to ask for double the amount each party was offering, but to still vote for AAP. He asked voters to ask for Rs 10,000 if they were being offered Rs 5,000 by the Congress, BJP and the SAD.
Mr. Kejriwal did not look concerned about the notice that he received from the ECI. He said that he had made similar comments during the Delhi elections and a similar case was filed against him in the Delhi High Court and the case was settled as the court ruled that he was stopping bribery in elections rather than promoting.
He also said that he will have SAD leader Bikram Singh Majithia arrested by the Police in 15 days. Also, Navjyot Singh Sidhu’s joining the Congress was a non issue as his career in politics was already over.
