AAP unveils AAP Ka RamRajya website to showcase party Ram Rajya concept

Thursday, 18 April 2024 | Staff Reporter | New Delhi

On a day “Surya Tilak” (Sun’s rays) illuminated Lord Ram Lalla idol’s forehead at Ayodhya Temple on the occasion of Ram Navami, the Aam Aadmi Party on Wednesday launched its “AAP Ka RamRajya” website for the Lok Sabha polls campaign to showcase the party’s concept of “Ram Rajya”, saying Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal tried to realise the ideals of Lord Ram in the national capital.

The launch of the website — aapkaramrajya.com — came ahead of the first phase of the Lok Sabha polls to be held on Friday. It coincided with the Ram Navami festival being celebrated in several parts of the country on Wednesday. During a joint press conference, Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh said the website will showcase AAP’s concept of “Ram Rajya” as well as the work done by the party’s governments.

“Chief Minister Kejriwal accomplished wonderful things — good schools, mohalla clinics, free water and electricity and free bus rides for women — in the last 10 years for realising ‘Ram Rajya’,” Singh said. This is the first time that Kejriwal is not among his people on Ram Navami, Singh said and alleged that the Delhi chief minister was sent to jail in a “baseless” case based on statements from “false” witnesses.

“In Arvind Kejriwal’s concept of ‘Ram Rajya’, no one is big or small and the idea is to work in the interest of all. Keeping this in mind, AAP’s Lok Sabha campaign website has been launched on Ram Navami,” Singh said. The world is learning from the work being done by Kejriwal and the AAP government, he claimed.

“Earlier, people used to say ‘learn from America’ but now the American president’s wife comes to India and says she wants to see schools built by Arvind Kejriwal. Now, Americans learn from Kejriwal’s work,” the senior leader said, referring to former US First Lady Melania Trump’s visit to a Delhi government school in February 2020.

Reacting to this, Delhi BJP President Virendra Sachdeva has termed it shameful for the Aam Aadmi Party to name its website Ram Rajya Website. He said that when Aam Aadmi Party and its leaders like Arvind Kejriwal, Sanjay Singh, Saurabh Bhardwaj or Ms. Atishi mention the name of Lord Ram or talk about Ram Rajya, it reminds us of a Hindi song - “Dekho a deewano tum yeh kaam na karo ram ka naam badnaam na karo.” Sachdeva said, “Whether it’s AAP or its leaders, all of them openly opposed the construction of Lord Ram temple in Ayodhya until 2022, and Chief Minister Kejriwal continued to oppose temple construction by narrating stories of his grandmothers and said its particularly hurting the feelings of Muslims.”

AAP leaders Atishi, Saurabh Bharadwaj and Jasmine Shah were also present at the press conference. Atishi, a minister in the Delhi government, said, “We are implementing the concept of ‘Ram Rajya’ in Delhi and Punjab. We want to spread the public welfare work being done by the AAP in the country and the world through this website.”

Reciting a verse from the Ramcharitamanas, she said, “Just like Lord Ram fulfilled all his promises amid hardships, Kejriwal is fighting all the difficulties and working for the people and fulfilling his promises in the same manner.” She recited another verse, “Raghukul reet sada chali aayi, pran jaaye par vachan na jaaye (a promise must be kept even at the cost of one’s life)” and asserted that Kejriwal worked with dedication to fulfil the promises made to the people of Delhi and Punjab.

Lord Shri Ram had to struggle to give real shape to Ram Rajya and went into 14 years of exile but did not break his promise. “Similarly, Arvind Kejriwal has to struggle a lot to fulfil his promises. Despite facing obstacles such as the central government’s attempts to hinder the work of the elected Delhi government and efforts to diminish its power through legislation, the CM has remained steadfast,” she said.
