The Aam Aadmi Party has intensified its preparations for the upcoming Maha-Rally at Delhi’s Ramlila Maidan on June 11th. AAP Delhi State Convenor and Cabinet Minister Shri Gopal Rai actively participated in a door-to-door campaign in Civil Lines on Tuesday. As part of the door-to-door campaign, Cabinet Minister Shri Gopal Rai engaged with residents to discuss the central government’s ordinance and encouraged them to join the rally, allowing their voices to be heard in opposition to the ordinance. He emphasised that the Bharatiya Janata Party-led central government has disregarded the Supreme Court’s orders by overturning them with the ordinance, displaying a lack of respect. It is crucial for us to unite against this ordinance today, as failure to do so could result in the erosion of people’s democratic right to vote, he said.

Shri Gopal Rai addressed an important press conference today wherein he said, “Following the Supreme Court’s verdict that granted the elected government the authority to manage the system in Delhi, so as to safeguard the rights of the voters of Delhi, the government of Delhi felt empowered to accomplish its tasks more efficiently. However, the Central Government of BJP and the Prime Minister of the country have disregarded the Supreme Court’s decision through an Ordinance, thus depriving the people of Delhi of their rights. Consequently, the citizens of Delhi are dismayed and disheartened, wondering why their voting rights are being dishonored.”

He continued, “To protest against the authoritarian approach of this Ordinance, a Maharally is scheduled to take place at Ramlila Maidan on 11th June. A Maha Rally Mandal Committee has been established in every Mandal in Delhi, and approximately 2000 meetings have been held thus far. Currently, a door-to-door campaign is underway, with pamphlets being distributed that contain an invitation to the Maharally on one side and the reason behind the rally on the other. Our volunteers have been distributing these pamphlets. We urge all Delhiites to join us at the Maharally.”

Voicing the fears of the people, Shri Gopal Rai further stated, “We are receiving support from all corners of the city in favour of this Maharally. Even supporters of BJP are questioning why their votes are being constantly devalued. Our party workers are going door-to-door to mobilize the masses, as failure to unite against this Ordinance today may result in the people’s right to vote being compromised. The BJP-led central government is displaying dictatorial tendencies, and there is a possibility that it may use an Ordinance to dismantle the Delhi government in the future.”

He added, “We have complete confidence that joining forces with the people of Delhi against this tyranny will lead to a massive rally against the central government. People are apprehensive that if the Supreme Court’s decision is also disregarded, the central government of the BJP will directly assault the integrity of democracy.”
