Kejriwal to join ‘Walk of Hope’ on Thursday
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will on Thursday join “The Walk of Hope”, an ongoing Kanya kumari-to-Kashmir ‘padayatra’ by social reformer Sri M.
The cross-country walk with 70 volunteers reached the national capital earlier in the day after covering 3,900 km.
“Our hope is to erase disparities arising from a misunderstanding of our diverse culture and religions, thus uniting India through a spiritual approach,” Sri M told the media.
During his three-day stay in Delhi, Sri M with other volunteers will also meet President Pranab Mukherjee.
Sri M condemned the anti-national slogans raised at the JNU campus, apparently by some students, but also criticized the government’s response.
“Those who raised anti-India slogans were wrong but the government should have dealt with them cautiously. The government should start a dialogue with the students to end the stalemate,” he said.
