Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal apologised at Sri Darbar Sahib on Monday morning for gaffes by that party that included equating a manifesto with the Sri Guru Granth Sahib and printing its symbol, the broom, on the cover of the document alongside a picture of the holiest Sikh shrine.
Kejriwal performed ‘sewa’ by washing utensils at the langar ghar for 45 minutes.
The Delhi chief minister was accompanied by senior party leadership including Sucha Singh Chhotepur, Sanjay Singh, H.S. Phoolka. Lok Sabha MP Bhagwant Mann and spokesperson Sukhpal Khaira.
“While releasing the manifesto, we inadvertently made some mistakes. To repent for those mistakes, we performed sewa today. We also paid obeisance at the Sri Darbar Sahib . We felt at peace after performing sewa,” Kejriwal said after spending around two hours inside the shrine.
The party is looking to do well in next year’s Punjab polls, trouncing the ruling Shiromani Akali Dal-BJP combine that has been hit by a wave of protests recently and the Congress that is hoping a victory in the state will reverse a nationwide electoral downslide.
