Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) volunteers across the country actively participated in the cleanliness drive with safai karamcharis on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti (Thursday).
The AAP volunteers were led by party’s national convenor and former Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, who took up the cleaning of a choked drain at BR Camp in New Delhi, early in the day.
After cleaning the drain with workers, Kejriwal had breakfast with the safai karamcharis and families of the area.
Party leaders, former minister and AAP MLAs across the national capital participated in the cleanliness drive with safai karamcharis and had food with them. (The links of photographs of the cleanliness drive are given below along with this press release. These have been taken by AAP volunteers and the media is free to use any of these photographs, along with those posted on the party’s official twitter handle @aamaadmiparty). The AAP, which had chosen the broom as its symbol to cleanse the deep rooted prejudices in the society and to root out corruption, will continue with this campaign.
The next part of the campaign will be the monitoring of the cleanliness campaign started today.
The AAP is of the clear view that a clean India will only be possible if the concerned authorities are ready to go beyond symbolism.
The AAP will continue its emphasis on improving the plight of safai karamcharis, who seem to have been forgotten in the entire exercise.
It is important to give them respect and improve their living conditions, give them permanent jobs and enhanced salaries, in case the country is serious about the cleanliness drive.
In the next phase, the AAP will soon announce its plan of effectively monitoring the cleanliness drive and how the concerned civic agencies can be made accountable for performing their primary duty.
