Arvind Kejriwal’s family is campaigning in Punjab. Here his daughter Harshita and son Pulkit along with their mother Sunita joined their father Arvind Kejriwal in Punjab’s holy city as he gears up for one of his biggest political battles yet.
Harshita, a third year student of chemical engineering in IIT Delhi, and brother Pulkit, a class Xth student, joined AAP’s footsoldiers for their door-to-door campaign in Amritsar. They arrived in Amritsar on Friday night with their mother Sunita.
After a six-hour push on the streets for AAP, Pulkit feels the response is good. “Sabhi bol rahe the jhadu, jhadu, aap ko toh bolne ke zaroorat nahi… Sabhi change ke liye hope kar rahen hai…. jitwayenge majority se, badlenge Punjab (Every one was chanting AAP-AAP, all seem to want change. They were saying we will make AAP win with majority, change Punjab).
Speaking of his father as a father would speak of a son, “We are proud of him that he has taken the initiative and is giving it all. Everyone says we need change, but no one makes the effort …he has taken a start of bringing honest people together and make India better,” says the son.
As election dates draw close, Pulkit admits he feels tense hoping “Papa will be able to make a change.”
