New Delhi: On Monday, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal addressed a gathering of Auto Rickshaw drivers at Ahmedabad in Gujarat. At the event, one of the drivers invited the Delhi CM to have dinner at his home. Kejriwal immediately accepted his invitation.

A video of this conversation between the duo was shared by the official handle of the Aam Aadmi Party.

The auto driver said he had heard about Kejriwal having dinner with a Punjab driver. Inviting Delhi CM he said, “I’m a big fan of yours, and I saw a video on social media of you having dinner with an auto driver in Punjab. Would you like to have dinner with me as well?”

Humbly responding to the driver, Kejriwal said, “I will definitely come for dinner. Punjab drivers love us, and Gujarat drivers too love us.”

Kejriwal asked him with a smile, “What time should we come? Will you come to my hotel tonight to pick me up in your auto?”

Kejriwal claims that during twice COVID his government had paid Rs 5,000 to over 1.5 lakh drivers.

“In Delhi, you do not need to go to the RTO (Regional Transport Office) for works like the renewal of license, change of ownership, permit, or hypothecation. We have given a phone number. Give a call and a Delhi government officer will come to your doorstep. You will get your license renewed in the same way you order a pizza on the phone,” PTI quoted Kejriwal as saying.

As per Kejriwal, this will put an end to bribery in this department. “You will not be required to pay any bribe. But for that you will have to form AAP’s government,” he said.

Drivers also claimed that police harassed them under  Indian Penal Code Section 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servants).

“This (Section) 188 was also used for harassment in Delhi,” said Kejriwal. “I know what this Section 188 is all about. They would make bogus cases, whether one was accused or not. They’d treat them as if they were murderers. I freed them from (Section) 188, and I will do the same in Gujarat,” Kejriwal said.

Free and good quality education and health services will be provided to all auto-rickshaw drivers if AAP comes into power, assures Kejriwal.
