Srinagar: Aam Admi Party(AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal will arrive in Kashmir in the first week of April and lead a march from Chrar-e-Sharief to Ganderbal, the party’s candidate for Lok Sabha polls in Srinagar Dr Muzafar Bhat said Sunday.
Bhat also rejected Huriyat Conference (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani’s remarks about AAP being no different from Congress or BJP and Kejriwal and Narendara Modi, BJP’s prime ministerial candidate, being “two sides of the same coin.”
“People of Kashmir are going through the most turbulent times and it is the need of the hour to eradicate corruption here,” Bhat was quoted as saying by a local news agency KNS.
“I want to ask Geelani sahib why shouldn’t corruption end? Why shouldn’t people have proper electricity and other facilities ,” Bhat said, adding the pro-freedom camp cannot address the day-t-day problems of people .
“The people of Kashmir must understand that AAP is fighting for their day to day issues within the system and it has got nothing to do with the ideology of any political party here,” he said.
