Kejriwal, Aap Leaders Do 'Sewa' At Golden Temple

Amritsar: Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party national convener Arvind Kejriwal cleaned utensils at a community kitchen as he and other party leaders performed "sewa" (voluntary religious service) inside the Golden Temple complex here early on Monday.

Accompanied by senior party leaders, including Ashish Khetan, H.S. Phoolka and Bhagwant Mann, Kejriwal arrived at the Golden Temple complex, where the holiest of Sikh shrines Harmandar Sahib, popularly known as The Golden Temple, is situated, before dawn on Monday. With his head convered by a handkerchief and folded hands, Kejriwal went around the shrine complex, offered prayers and later cleaned utensils at the "Langar hall", the community kitchen which serves food to over one lakh people in a single day.

Kejriwal and others, who remained in the shrine for about an hour, also partook of "langar" (community food). The move by Kejriwal to come here was to seek forgiveness for his party's political gaffe after the party's youth manifesto carried a picture of the shrine along with a broom which is AAP's election symbol.
