The Aam Aadmi Party chief and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal has requested AAP workers across the country ‘except’ those in Haryana and Punjab to take leave till elections and join him in Delhi for campaigning for the ongoing Lok Sabha elections.
मैं सभी कार्यकर्ताओं से निवेदन करता हूँ कि चुनाव तक सब लोग छुट्टी ले लें। हरियाणा और पंजाब छोड़कर देश भर के सभी कार्यकर्ता भी दिल्ली आ जायें। दिल्ली के लोगों के साथ मिलकर दिल्ली की सातों सीटों पर भाजपा को हराना है।

In a post uploaded on Twitter, Arvind Kejriwal has asked all AAP workers to come to Delhi and help the Delhi AAP state unit for defeating the BJP on all the 7 seats in Delhi. As per many opinion polls, BJP is poised to sweep all 7 seats in Delhi.
Kejriwal’s requests have also generated some amusing reactions on Twitter. Rebel MLA Kapil Mishra taunted Kejriwal saying that there are no AAP workers left in Delhi.
हे घुँघुरु सेठ
देश क्यों सम्पूर्ण विश्व और अंतरिक्ष में विचरण करते हुए अपने सभी कार्यकर्ताओं को दिल्ली बुला लो
दिल्ली में अब कार्यकर्ता नहीं बचे
अब अगर सारे देश में एक महीने का सार्वजनिक अवकाश नहीं हुआ तो लोकतंत्र को भयानक खतरा
सब आपकी तरह निठल्ले नहीं होते CM साब https://t.co/CFY5yQIJYZ

It is pertinent to note that Arvind Kejriwal’s entreaty has been addressed to all the AAP workers across the country except Haryana and Punjab. Perhaps, Kejriwal has realised that AAP’s predicament in other states in the country is a foregone conclusion. It was also evident in the frantic attempts he had made to Congress to form an alliance.
It is also notable that Arvind Kejriwal was desperately seeking to form an alliance with Congress in Delhi, Haryana and Punjab to mount a collective offense against the mighty BJP but due to disagreement over the distribution of the seats and the nature of alliance, Congress turned down the obsessive pleadings made by AAP leaders to stitch an alliance and fight the elections jointly.
