Amit Palekar's fast marked beginning of Goa's political cleansing: Arvind Kejriwal

Panaji, Dec 4 (UNI) Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday said fast against the 'illegal' structure by Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Amit Palekar marked the beginning of Goa's political cleansing.
Speaking to reporters, he said, "Amit Palekar was on an indefinite hunger strike for the past five days. He braved the hot sun and the rain. When his health started to deteriorate, his doctor advised him to end his fast; however, he chose to persist. After seeing Amit Palekar's indefinite hunger strike and the kind of support he has been receiving from Goans, finally the government was forced to cave in. This is the beginning of Goa's political cleansing."
"People who claim Palekar's hunger strike was a political stunt, I challenge them to fast for five days. Fasting is a spiritual experience. It cleanses the body and soul. In the last 60 years of liberation, no political leader has burnt out their body for a cause,' he said.
