Bhavnagar: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday said God will cause a miracle by sweeping the broom, the Aam Aadmi Party’s election symbol, and catapult his party to power in Gujarat, where the two-phase Assembly polls are scheduled for December 1 and 5.

When the “pot of sin is full, the Almighty sweeps his broom”, the Aam Aadmi Party national convener claimed while addressing a roadshow in Bhavnagar in the poll-bound state.

“In all of Gujarat, a heavy storm of change is brewing. The entire state has stood up. Some miracle is going to happen this time. It is said in Bhagavadgita that whenever the pot of sin is full, the Almighty sweeps his broom. The Almighty has started sweeping his broom,” Kejriwal said.

He said people getting zero electricity bills for the usage of 24-hour electricity, as part of AAP’s poll promise of not charging for 300 units of power, would be the “magic” people will experience once his party forms government in Gujarat.

“This is magic. This 24-hour, zero-electricity bill is magic. And only Kejriwal knows how to perform that magic. No other party can perform this magic. I have been specially blessed by the Almighty and this can only be done by Kejriwal and no other leader,” he said.

He said the Bharatiya Janata Party had done nothing for the state in its 27-year rule and voting for the opposition Congress was futile as its legislators would defect to the ruling party post-elections.

Kejriwal asked the people assembled at the roadshow to give him a chance to see what can be done in five years, adding they could “throw us out” if promises are not fulfilled.

“Today, people are suffering due to inflation. They are unable to survive. I will give you relief from inflation. After the formation of our government, I will pay your electricity bill from March 1,” he said.

Kejriwal said women above the age of 18 will get Rs 1,000 per month as an honorarium, while youth will get Rs 3,000 as an unemployment allowance till they land a job.

“If you want to keep your children unemployed, you want to be abused, then you vote for them (BJP). This has been going on for 27 years. But if you want employment for your children, then vote for AAP,” he asserted.

Slamming the ruling BJP, he said frequent exam paper leaks in major competitive exams meant there was the involvement of big leaders.

“All paper leaks since 2015 will be probed and these big leaders will go to jail. We will completely eliminate the atmosphere of fear in the business world. We will create an environment to do business with courage and peace. We will give every businessman the respect they deserve,” he said.

Kejriwal said an AAP government in the state would be free from corruption, and Value Added Tax and other pending refunds will be paid within six months (of coming to power).

The Goods and Services Tax will be simplified, he added.
