Arvind Kejriwal to highlight polluted Ganga, sewer & plight of weavers in his Varanasi campaign

VARANASI: The battle for the Varanasi seat might have serious national implications, but the Aam Aadmi Party’s campaign for this constituency will be one centred purely on local issues.
With Arvind Kejriwal set to take on BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, his core team of volunteers — a mix of experienced hands pulled out from the Delhi cadre and youngsters from eastern UP — has decided to highlight the river, sewer and weaver in his campaign.
Two of AAP’s most senior leaders, Gopal Rai and Sanjay Singh, will be the key generals of the campaign and will base themselves in Varanasi for most of the election season once polling in Delhi is over.
According to a senior leader who spoke to ET on condition of anonymity, a large chunk of the capital’s volunteers along with the party’s winning candidates or MLAs from the Delhi elections will “shift base to Varanasi” after April 10.
