KOCHI : "Now, there will be four political alliances in Kerala--LDF, UDF, NDA and the name of our alliance will be People's Welfare Alliance", Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) National Convenor Arvind Kejriwal announced on Sunday an alliance between his party and Kerala's Twenty20 party, ahead of Thrikkakkara assembly byelection.

Kejriwal visited Kochi on Sunday and made an announcement about the alliance. He made the announcement in the presence of Twenty20 Party head Sabu Jacob.

The Delhi CM on Sunday also highlighted the journey of the party over the years in various parts of the country.

The Election Commission of India has scheduled the by-election to the Thrikkakara assembly constituency for 31 May. Votes will be counted on 3 June.

"Kerala is God's own place. Such a beautiful place, such beautiful people! 10 years ago, nobody knew Arvind Kejriwal. Today, we have governments in Delhi and Punjab. This was all because of God. Now, who wants AAP to form government in Kerala?" Kejriwal asked.

"When I fasted for 15 days, doctors said I won't survive. But here I am. All because of God. Our newly formed party's candidates including homemakers, students, and mobile repairers, defeated the sitting Chief Minister of Punjab and Delhi. All because of God," the AAP national convenor said.

Kejriwal further mentioned that a poor labourer in Delhi gets over 15,000 as minimum wage that is the highest in India. "On top of that, labourers get quality healthcare, education, transport for women, electricity, water, everything for free. This is possible because of the honest AAP government," he said.

Kejriwal earlier today visited India's first Food Security Mart, a revolutionary initiative by Twenty20 party led by Sabu Jacob in Kizhakkambalam, Kerala today.

He arrived at Cochin international airport near here on Saturday morning to loud cheers of his supporters. He is scheduled to address a public meeting organised by the apolitical outfit Twenty20 at the Kitex Garments Ground on Sunday.

This is the first visit of Kejriwal to Kerala after he won the Delhi assembly elections for the second consecutive term in 2020.
