On the eve of one month of his government taking office on Saturday, Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Admi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal sent out a message to his party that it has to give a good government in Delhi and change the system.

In a first statement after the turmoil broke out with ugly public spat among its leaders, Kejriwal said “…now we have to move forward from here and if we present Delhi as a model then I feel that it will give rise to a new kind of politics in this country and in this world.”

“I strongly fight on this issue within the party. Everyone says now that we have won Delhi we will win others as well. Are we a Napoleon who are on the victory march?” the AAP leader said at the naturopathy institute.

Kejriwal’s remarks came at an informal cultural event at Jindal Nature Cure Institute where the 46-year old AAP leader was admitted on March five for a 10-day nature cure treatment for his persistent chronic cough problem and uncontrolled sugar level.

“We have to change the system, so we will have to give a good government and a good system in Delhi and if Delhi changes I have a belief that whole country will change.”

“We want you guys to give us your ideas and all of you to participate in this,” he told the gathering as he also joined them in singing a song as part of “Antakshari” programme.

Kejriwal’s remarks are seen as a clear message to the party to focus on providing good governance in Delhi, as AAP, gripped by infighting, is struggling to battle internal crisis and stave off the damaging fall-out to its public image.

The simmering rift flared up with AAP’s founding members Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan being ousted from the party’s Political Affairs Committee.

Meanwhile, the AAP leader is staying in an accommodation with two bedrooms, a hall and a treatment room, called “Nest” at the Institute, a specialty charitable naturopathy and yoga hospital in an eco-friendly campus of 100 acres.

A set of four senior doctors, including an acupuncturist, physiotherapist and a yoga officer, are taking care of Kejriwal.
