New Delhi: Upping the ante on the demonetisation issue, the AAP today announced that it will organise six rallies across the nation, including one in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s constituency Varanasi, and raise questions on the alleged “Rs 8 lakh crore scam” related to it.
Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal will hold three rallies in poll-bound Uttar Pradesh starting from December 1 in Meerut, followed by a rally in Varanasi and Lucknow on December 8 and 18 respectively, AAP leader Ashish Khetan said.
Modi has defeated Kejriwal from the Varanasi Lok Sabha seat in May 2014 by a massive margin of 3.37 lakh votes.
The rallies assume significance as UP goes to polls early next year.
On December 20, Kejriwal will hold a rally in Bhopal, followed by two more in Ranchi and Jaipur on December 22 and 23 respectively.
Notably, all three are BJP-ruled states.
“We will raise important questions about demonetisation and Rs 8 lakh crore scam related to it,” said Khetan.
Kejriwal is currently in Punjab, campaigning for the party for the Assembly elections scheduled early next year. PTI
