Thousands gather for AAP’s march to PMO

Thousands of Aam Aadmi Party supporters have assembled at Mandi House to march towards the PMO to support Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his ministers’ sit-in at the lieutenant governor’s office for the last seven days in their fight against the “dictatorship” of Modi government.

However, the Delhi Police had said that the Kejriwal-led party hasn’t sought permission for the march.The police said that exits of several metro stations — Patel Chowk, Udgyog Bhavan, Central Secretariat, Janpath and Lok Kalyan Marg — have been shut.

Ahead of the march, the Communist Party of India-Marxist lent its support to Kejriwal’s dharna.

CPI-M general secretory Sitaram Yechury tweeted: “Joining the protest rally to the Prime Minister’s residence today to express serious condemnation over the manner in which federalism, a fundamental feature of our Constitution, is being undermined by this BJP Central government.”
