Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday said the current phase of “false propaganda” targeting AAP will pass soon. He assured his party workers that selection of candidates for the 2017 Punjab Assembly polls will be from the constituencies and nobody will be fielded from “outside the constituencies”.

Kejriwal, who is staying at a farmhouse in Jhande village here, had a closed-door meeting with the party workers who had come from all over the state to meet him.

A party spokesman said due to last minute change in his schedule, the AAP supremo started meeting party workers from around 4 PM after returning from Amritsar.

On the second day of his four-day Punjab tour in the aftermath of the sex CD exposure and cash-for-ticket allegations, Kejriwal told his party workers that they were going to steer through this phase of “false propaganda” soon.

Quoting Kejriwal, the spokesman said these allegations were a part of a “deep-rooted conspiracy” of its political opponents to “defame” AAP. He also asked for suggestions from the cadres for strengthening the party.

The party workers were not allowed to carry mobile phones during the meeting, sources said, adding that Kejriwal met them in batches.

A delegation of mid-day meal workers also met and apprised him of their demands and difficulties. The AAP supremo assured them of “all the help”. Later, Kejriwal paid a visit to former vice chancellor of

Punjabi University and noted agro-economist SS Johal at the latter’s residence in Gurdev Nagar here. However, the media was not allowed to interact with him there as well.
