आज संविधान दिवस है। आम आदमी पार्टी को भी बने आज पूरे 9 साल हो गए हैं। हर गुज़रते दिन के साथ देश के लोगों की उम्मीदें और विश्वास ‘आप’ पर बढ़ता जा रहा है। सभी ‘आप’ कार्यकर्ताओं से मेरी अपील है कि देश के संविधान की रक्षा और जनता की सेवा में हमें दिन-रात यूं ही मेहनत करते रहना है। pic.twitter.com/bX20OxxX4J— Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) November 26, 2021
"Today is Constitution Day. The Aam Aadmi Party has completed nine years of its formation. With every passing day, the expectations of the country's people and their trust is increasing in AAP. I appeal to all AAP workers to continue working hard towards protecting the Constitution and serving people day and night," he said in a tweet in Hindi.
26/11 के मुम्बई हमले में जान की बाज़ी लगाकर देश की सेवा करने वाले हमारे वीर जवानों की अमर शहादत को मैं श्रद्धापूर्वक नमन करता हूं। अपने वीर शहीदों का ये देश हमेशा ऋणी रहेगा।— Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) November 26, 2021
He also remembered the soldiers who laid down their lives in the 26/11 terror attacks. "I salute the immortal martyrdom of our brave soldiers who laid down their lives while serving the nation during the 26/11 terror attacks in Mumbai. This country will always remain indebted to its brave martyrs," read his tweet in Hindi.
On November 26, 2008, 10 Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists from Pakistan arrived by sea route and opened fire, killing 166 people, including 18 security personnel, and injuring several others during the 60-hour siege in Mumbai.
The chief minister also congratulated the farmers on completion of one year of their movement against the three farm laws that were repealed last week. "Today, the farmers' movement has completed a year. This historic movement faced winters, summers, rains and storm along with many conspiracies. The country's farmers taught us how to wage a fight with patience. I salute the courage, spirit and sacrifice of the farmers," he tweeted.
