Kejriwal to interact with people through ‘Talk to AK’
Mumbai:- Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will hold an interactive session on July 17, titled ‘Talk to AK’, where people from across the country can ask him queries via phone, text message and social media.
“Our leader (Kejriwal) can be approached via twitter, Facebook, phone calls and text messages wherein people can put their questions. The programme titled is ‘Talk to AK’ and it starts at 11 AM on July 17,” Ashutosh Sengar, joint in-charge of AAP Maharashtra unit, told a press conference here today.
The programme may last three to four hours depending on the number of people and questions, he said.
The Delhi government in this regard has launched a dedicated website–www.talktoak.com–through which people can directly ask questions to him, he said.
To a query that if this programme is on the lines of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s radio show ‘Mann Ki Baat’, Senger said ‘Talk to AK’ will be conducted as a conversation not monologue, as the objective of the exercise is to know, learn and understand from each other’s experiences and “not just preach about ones individual views”.
When asked how the AAP national convenor can contribute in solving the grave issue of potholes (on roads) in Mumbai, he said issue like that of potholes is a micro one, whereas Kejriwal wants to address big problems like corruption, inflation.
On the prospects of AAP contesting the forthcoming civic body election in Mumbai, to be held early next year, Senger said the party will have a through assessment followed by an in-depth review and then it will decide whether it will participate in the polls.
