Earlier, In a bid to make a foothold in the poll-bound Uttar Pradesh, the AAP on Tuesday took out a massive “Tiranga Yatra”, giving a call to establish a Ram Rajya in the state and equating it with true nationalism and communal harmony.
The rally was led by AAP MP Sanjay Singh and Delhi’s Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia with nearly 10,000 people -- almost all carrying Tricolours and raising slogans of “Inquilab Zindabad” and “Vande Mataram” -- participating in it.
Also ranting the air with the slogan of Ram Rajya Lana Hai, Hindu Muslim ko Ek banana hai” (we have to establish Ram Rajya and unite Hindus and Muslims), the participants covered a distance of barely two kilometers from the 18th-century mausoleum of Nawab Shuja Ud Daulah to Gandhi Park in the city in five hours.
