My sentiments are heartfelt and will reach every every household: Arvind Kejriwal
On the sixth Day of his fast anti-corruption activist Arvind Kejriwal while addressing people at Sundar Nagri said he is feels fine and will continue to wage a fight against inflated bijli-pani bills till the people of Delhi are energized and unite in action.

Responding to questions as to why the Congress and other major parties had not responded to the issue of inflated bills, Kejriwal said, "They are worried as a different kind of politics is slowly emerging in India. So far they are used to winning on the basis of bribing the voters, money power and muscle power but now the voters have awakened." He said, “Agla chunav, chunav nahi kranti hogi.

A farmer leader Gurnam Singh, commenting on the fast, said, if the oppressed farmers in Haryana, since the past 14 years, have not paid their electricity bills, why can’t people of Delhi act against illegitimate bills. Activist Manish Sisodia quoted another example, and said that 800 villages in Madhya Pradesh have not paid their bills after rates were hiked all of a sudden.

Arvind Kejriwal’s health is said to be stable, as vital parameters are within the normal range. He has lost 6 kgs after beginning his fast on March 23. About 2500 volunteers came to visit Arvind Kejriwal on Holi. Almost 3000 volunteers plan to turn their homes into asahyog kendras.

A team of nearly 7000 volunteers is working across Delhi to reach out to people even as around 500 volunteers from neighbouring states of Rajasthan, UP and Haryana arrive to provide additional support in campaigning - asking people not to pay bills while protesting against inflated water and electricity bills.
