Vote for literate PM this time: Kejriwal
New Delhi, Feb 13 : Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday urged people to vote for a literate man, unlike the last time when they voted for a 12th pass.
A galaxy of opposition leaders, including Chief Ministers Mamata Banerjee (West Bengal), N. Chandrababu Naidu (Andhra Pradesh), former chief ministers Farooq Abdullah (Jammu and Kashmir) and Gegong Apang (Arunachal Pradesh), Congress leader Anand Sharma, Communist Party of India general secretary Sitaram Yechury attended the rally in a show of strength.
Kejriwal in his address, recalled the anti-corruption protests of 2011 -- following which his party was formed -- and said, "The last time we gathered here, you voted for a change. Today will also be remembered in history as now it is your turn to vote against the Modi government."
Accusing the Modi government of destroying the economy, the social fabric of the country and the democracy of India, the chief minister said, "If you vote for them again, the country will not survive."
