The Chief Minister of Delhi and the national convener of AAP, Arvind Kejriwal has come up with another stunt to woo the Patel community of Gujrat as he has decided to meet the kin of Patel youths killed in Gujrat quota agitation.
Kejriwal will meet family members of Patidar youths, who were killed in the quota stir violence last year, during his Gujarat tour beginning on Friday, a move of caste base politics.
According to the schedule of Kejriwal’s tour in Gujrat, the AAP national convener will visit AAP’s Gujarat unit office on Wednesday. As per the schedule, Kejriwal would spend four days in the state, starting October 14.
The AAP national convener’s hunger for the power is visible as he forgets that he is the Chief Minister of Delhi and touring in the country. Arvind Kejriwal’s visit is scheduled as part of AAP’s preparations for the upcoming assembly polls in Gujrat.
Kejriwal would also meet some families of the deceased Patel youths in Mehsana and Ahmedabad. At least 12 youths of the community were killed last year during the violence that erupted across Gujarat following detention by police of quota leader Hardik Patel on August 25 after their mega rally at GMDC ground here.
However, BJP has termed Kejriwal’s “goodwill gesture” for Patels, a decisive vote-bank in Gujarat, as a “political stunt and a drama.” He had played the same stunt in Hyderabad when met the family of late Dalit scholar Rohit Vemula in Hyderabad. He had also visited the family of late Bheem Tank in Punjab.
The Chief Minister of Delhi had also offered job to the families of Rohit Vemula and Bheem Tank in Delhi government. He did not deliver his promise of creating jobs in Delhi and offered jobs to the families of outsiders.
It is evident that the AAP national convener has mastered the art of playing politics of caste and religion.
