Former ‘India Against Corruption’ leader Arvind Kejriwal is now all set to make his debut in the upcoming elections against Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit. The elections are scheduled to be held later this year and Kejriwal has now turned Delhiite by changing the place of his residence, due to the fact that only the person whose name is in the voter’s list in Delhi can fight the elections here.
Therefore, the Aam Aadmi Party leader wants to be technically correct and is getting his voter identity card prepared in the capital. He has surrendered his old voter ID and has acquired a new one with the place of residence in F Block, Sundar Nagri, in East Delhi.
Before the move, Kejriwal was residing in Ghaziabad in Uttar Pradesh and this address was mentioned in his old voter card. Kejriwal’s move is just another step in entering the political scene and opposing Dikshit. In addition to this, the Aam Aadmi Party leader also launched a campaign for creating party volunteers in the area.
Part of his campaign against Sheila Dikshit also includes recruitment of volunteers from the New Delhi constituency. The local volunteers will be taking on the responsibility of about 15 to 20 homes in the vicinity.
