Policy: – Please vote. Use the right to vote, and vote against dictatorship, he said.

Kejriwal has been one of the most important politicians in India in the last decade. For several years, he has led the city council in New Delhi and is one of Prime Minister Modi’s fiercest critics.

The opposition leader was arrested in March and detained for several weeks during the election campaign.

The election for a new national assembly in the world’s largest democracy is held over a period of six weeks. On Saturday, the sixth part begins in Delhi, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh, among others.

The election continues until 1 June. Almost 970 million voters, over 10 per cent of the world’s population, will elect 543 members to the National Assembly’s lower house. The vote counting is scheduled to take place on 4 June.
