Arvind Kejriwal will address a rally of auto drivers at the Ramlila Maidan in Delhi today

By on July 31, 2014

Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal will address a rally of auto drivers at the Ramlila Maidan in Delhi today. The AAP leader had addressed a similar rally of e-rickhsaw drivers last month. The Aam Aadmi Party will hold another rally on August 3 to test its support base.

Party leader Manish Sisodia told IANS: “(Party chief) Arvind (Kejriwal) will listen to problems of auto drivers, but he will also tell them not to overcharge passengers.”

He said harassment of autorickshaw drivers by police has increased ever since the NDA government came to power in Delhi.

Asked whether the rally success will be considered a show of strength for the party with the assembly elections in mind, a senior party member said: “The tone will be set in the Aug 3 rally.”

The first rally at the Ramlila Maidan will be for the party’s crucial vote bank – autorickshaw drivers. The Aug 3 rally at Jantar Mantar is scheduled to protest against President’s Rule in the national capital and for dissolution of the Delhi assembly.
