Labourers allege non-payment of the promised Rs 350, food for attending AAP's rally in Hisar
Nothing seems to going right at the moment for Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal whose lately been on a forgiveness seeking mission apologizing to all those who have filed defamation suits against him. While some like Nitin Gadkari were patronizing enough to grant him an apology, few were unrelenting like Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley.

According to news reports, as many as 30 defamation suits had accumulated against Arvind Kejriwal, perhaps the most against any Indian politician in history.

However, on Sunday, the Aam Aadmi Party was once again caught on the wrong foot, this time for an all together different reason. In a major embarrassment for Arvind Kejriwal, a group of labourers came on camera alleging that they hadn't been paid the promised Rs 350 or provided food for attending Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal's rally in Hissar, Haryana. The labourers said that they felt cheated after not being paid despite attending the rally.

ANI tweeted on Monday, “Labourers allege that they were promised Rs 350 each and food, to be present at Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal's public rally in Haryana's Hisar yesterday but they neither got money nor food.”

On Sunday, during his Hisar rally, Arvind Kejriwal announced that his party would contest in the 2019 Assembly elections in Haryana. The AAP supremo also promised that the party would repeat a Delhi-like miracle if voted to power.

However, since the video of the labourers surfaced online on Monday, AAP has been receiving a lot of backlash for allegedly “duping” the poor people and using cheap tactics for gathering crowds for its rally. The Aam Aadmi Party is yet to respond to the allegations.

Taking a jibe at Arvind Kejriwal for his apology seeking spree, Twitterati assured the labourers that even though they did not get paid they would eventually get an apology from the AAP chief.
