Arvind Kejriwal wooed slum votes as he pegged his 'guarantee' against Narendra Modi's life-size persona
For the 2020 election, Kejriwal’s ‘guarantee card’ had a specific impetus on unauthorised colonies or jhuggi jhopri (JJ) colonies. He promised facilities like drinking water, sanitation, roads and infrastructure, mohalla clinics and CCTV cameras - once they are legalised. His promise to citizens living in authorised colonies is pitched against the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) recent bill that plans to regularise over 1,700 slums and build over 2 lakh homes under the Pradhan Mantri Awaas Yojana (PMAY). In addition, BJP candidate Manoj Tiwari has also been making the headlines for ‘silently’ working towards helping people in these communities. Out of Delhi’s 70 assembly segments, slum-dwellers hold the decisive vote in nearly 28, according to a senior BJP leader. During the last Delhi Election in 2015, AAP was able to garner 95% of those votes — not to mention winning 67 of the 70 seats.
