Get ready to serve Delhi and make it safe for women: Arvind Kejriwal to AAP cadre

In an attempt to mobilise the party cadre, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday appealed to members not to succumb to evil forces and stay focussed on agenda.

New Delhi: In an attempt to mobilise the Aam Aadmi Party cadre,  AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday appealed to his party members not to succumb to "evil forces" and stay focussed on agenda.

Writing on his Twitter account, the AAP convenor said: “To all AAP volunteers n supporters. Evil forces will try to divert ur attention. But pl stay focussed on positive agenda for Delhi.”


Kejriwal had on Thursday accused other political parties in Delhi of trying to buy AAP volunteers ahead of the February 07 Assembly Elections.

Writing on the microblogging website, Kejriwal said he has asked his party volunteers to accept the money being offered. However, the volunteers have been asked to record the act in the form of a sting to expose the opponents.

It is not the first time that the former Delhi chief minister has raked the bribe issue. He had earlier asked voters in Delhi to accept money from the Congress and BJP but vote for the AAP in February 7 elections.

After his repeated remarks, the Election Commission had warned Kejriwal of “stern action”.

The poll watchdog "warned" him that it will be "constrained to take stern action against you in the event of any further violation".

Kejriwal had earlier said that he respects the poll body and the law and that he would stop making such appeals if the Commission thinks his statements were inappropriate.

The public speech made by Kejriwal that invited EC's ire was: "It's election time. When people both from BJP and Congress come offering money, don't refuse, accept...some have looted money from 2G, some have looted money from coal scam... Take money from both the parties but vote for AAP.

We will fool them this time. They have been deceiving us for the last 65 years. Now it's our turn."
