New Delhi: Sanjay Gehlot, president of the Safai Karamcharis Union on Monday joined the Aam Aadmi Party in the presence of party chief Arvind Kejriwal.
Gehlot had led a series of protests in the past few years for the rights of sanitation workers and had even protested against Kejriwal.
“We have been cheated by Manoj Tiwari, the Delhi BJP chief. He said he will give us funds from the Centre but we got nothing. We even approached the Prime Minister but we were beaten up at Jantar Mantar,” Gehlot said.
He said that, on the other hand, Kejriwal helped us every time we hit the streets.
“The one responsible for the exploitation of the people of our community is the BJP,” Gehlot added.
