As Kejriwal takes oath, AAP to sweep dirt spots

When Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal takes oath at Ram Lila Maidan in New Delhi to become the youngest chief minister of Delhi, party workers and leaders in Gujarat will pick up the broomstick and sweep the dirtiest parts of Ahmedabad and other towns across the state.

In Ahmedabad, the party has chosen the areas around the flower market in Jamalpur where they will assemble and clean the heap of garbage left behind by the traders everyday. "While other parties celebrate their victory by eating, drinking and dancing, we will celebrate by serving the common man, sending a message that the job of a victor is not to make merry but take care of the needs of the people," AAP's Gujarat media coordinator Harshil Nayak told The Indian Express. Nayak said the party would also conduct "cleanliness programmes" in all towns and cities, where the party has some presence to make people aware of their rights.

He said by organising small meetings at all these places, the "aam aadmi" would be made aware of a new political alternative, other than Congress and BJP.
