In what is being called as yet another Hindutva pitch, Arvind Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government has said that it will have the recitation of Sundar Kand every Tuesday. On Tuesday morning, AAP's MLA Saurabh Bharadwaj tweeted that there will a Sundar Kand event at 4.30 PM at Chirag Delhi's Ancient Shiv Mandir. 

Sundar Kand is a part of Hindu epic Ramayana which describes the adventures of Lord Hanuman. As per mythology, Lord Hanuman was called “Sundara” by his mother.

Speaking to Republic TV, AAP MLA Bharadwaj said: "I think Hanuman ji is running the entire country, so our government is a small thing. It was Hanuman ji who helped Lord Rama and Laxman. He has always helped people. Whenever someone talks about loyalty, in problems, people pray to Lord Hanuman."

This development comes after Delhi CM Kejriwal called himself a "Hanuman Bhakht" and recited Hanuman Chalisa ahead of polls.
