“Kejriwal held a closed door meeting with Satguru Uday Thakur for almost twenty minutes. He also asked for his blessings and support for coming polls but we are yet to openly announce any support for any political party. Satguru ji gave him his blessings but denied to announce any support for AAP. He only said that may the people vote for the best candidates,” Lakhvir told The Indian Express.

Commenting on Chand Kaur murder case, Kejriwal said, “Namdhari sect is known for its immense contribution in independence struggle and it is shameful that they are still waiting for justice in murder case of their mother. AAP government will work on this case at utmost priority if voted to power.”
