NEW DELHI: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday led his party workers to clean up drains in a small residential area near Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s residence.

Kejriwal chose BR Camp, a low income area, on the very day PM Modi launched his Clean India campaign. The BR Camp falls in Kejriwal’s New Delhi Assembly constituency.

After cleaning the drain with workers, Kejriwal had breakfast with the safai karamcharis and families of the area.  Party leaders and AAP MLAs in the national capital participated in the cleanliness drive with safai karamcharis and had food with them.

The AAP, which had chosen broom as its symbol, said that it will continue the clean campaign. 

“The next part of the campaign will be the monitoring of the cleanliness campaign started from Thursday. 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,” said Kejriwal.

“The AAP will continue its emphasis on improving the plight of safai karamcharis, who seem to have been forgotten in the entire exercise,” Kejriwal said.
