Exclusive! Kejriwal to Rediff: I will not contest LS polls

Last updated on: February 18, 2014 13:35 IST

Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal, who appeared on the Rediff Chat to take questions from our readers on Tuesday, told Rediff.com's Sheela Bhatt that he will not be fighting the Lok Sabha elections.

The AAP, however, has decided to target the LS polls in an aggressive manner, and has already named some 20 candidates against prominent politicians including Rahul Gandhi, Nitin Gadkari and others.

Meanwhile, here is a quick look at some of the questions he fielded from readers (we will put up all the questions and answers in a bit):

Neeraj Paliwal  Sir, AAP is doing excellent work but it doesn't have enough fund to fight election across the country. How will you manage it ? I already donated & encouraged others too but the requirement is very high and only few days are left. #Arvind-Kejriwal-Chat

Arvind Kejriwal People will give money. When you work on path of truth all the good forces of the universe will help you. We will win.

 

ashish goyal  1 final question you filed a FIR against Ambani. Bravo thats nice. But how about the Polititians? You made tall claims about the corruption for specific polititians but no action were really taken for the same. #Arvind-Kejriwal-Chat

Arvind Kejriwal But, we filed FIRs against the misdeeds of the Sheila Dixit government,also.

 

Sebastian Cherukanam After the emphatic win in Delhi election, you looked ‘above’ and praised ‘someone’ sitting there, thanked as though that ‘someone’ was behind that win. I think you did so because just like others, you too are blind. What is your opinion on Religions and the GODs mentioned there? #Arvind-Kejriwal-Chat

Arvind Kejriwal In last few years i have become a believer. Something very divine is happening in our country. The kind of people's power that we are witnessing is amazing. and i feel that the nature is doing its work.
