Instead of focusing on the work in Delhi where people had reposed trust in him and elected his party, Arvind Kejriwal is deserting the Delhi voters and loitering in Punjab.

While the main battle is expected to take place between the traditional parties Akali Dal and Congress, a Delhi-based politician Arvind Kejriwal has also decided to try his luck in the upcoming Punjab election.

However, reports suggest that Kejriwal and his political group Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) are being shooed away by the people of Punjab.

A leading Hindi newspaper reported today that Kejriwal – who also is the chief minister of Delhi – had to abruptly run away from a election meeting in Patiala because there were hardly any audience and almost all the chairs were empty.

The newspaper also reported that Kejriwal who is known for his long-winded speeches had to run away after making a short address of just 4 minutes 37 seconds.

These days, Kejriwal has completely ignored Delhi and is spending a lot of time in Punjab. It is believed that he wants to run away from Delhi where his role has been reduced to a naught, as the court has decreed that the lieutenant governor of Delhi will be head of the state.

During the past two years of Kejriwal’s rule in Delhi, the living conditions for the people of Delhi have gone from bad to worse.

Recently, social activist Anna Hazare also told Kejriwal that he has betrayed him and the people who supported him. In a letter written to Kejriwal, Hazare had expressed his anguish on many issues pertaining to Kejriwal’s extreme greed and betrayal.

Kejriwal was supporting Hazare in his anti-corruption movement of 2011. But he had deserted the social activist to form the political outfit AAP and later joined hands with Congress unscrupulously to form government in Delhi.

Instead of focusing on the work in Delhi where people had reposed trust in him and elected his party, Kejriwal is deserting the Delhi voters as he did to Hazare.

As Hazare had observed that Kejriwal is greedy and betrayer, now he is trying to spread his wings in other Indian states such as Punjab and Goa by participating in local elections.

But people in various states are now realizing that Kejriwal and his party will cheat them as they did to Delhi voters. The empty chairs in Punjab is the indication of the fate that Kejriwal and AAP are going to face.

The election for the 117-member Punjab Legislative Assembly will be held on February 4, 2017.
