Bolstered by Tuesday’s stupendous victory once again in Delhi assembly elections, the Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has decided to contest all local elections in Maharashtra.
“Aam Aadmi Party Maharashtra has decided to fight all forthcoming local elections including Mumbai elections and replicate the Delhi model of pragmatism, performance, and people-centric policies. We are sure that Maharashtra will shower us with the same faith and love as Delhi has done so,” the party said in a press statement from the party Tuesday.
Thanking the election commission and the media for carrying out a fair and free election, Preeti Sharma Menon, national executive member, AAP, said, “The Aam Aadmi Party fought the recent Delhi Assembly election with a pragmatic, positive campaign based only upon the work done and the promises fulfilled by the Delhi government. In return the people of Delhi have showered their love and have brought us back with an enormous victory. With this resounding victory it has been clear that the people of Delhi support politics of love and performance and have totally rejected the divisive and communal politics of the Bhartiya Janta Party.”
“The party’s immediate focus and commitment is towards fulfilling its manifesto promises which include its 10 guarantees .We vow to perform all our duties as an elected government by bringing complete social and economic justice to the people of Delhi. We also affirm that we would work over and beyond our manifesto just like we did in the previous five years. Across the country Delhi results have sparked a hope that now there will be politics on governance and not identity. There have been multiple requests from across India to join the AAP so that the model of performance and work is replicated across the country at large. To do this we have started a helpline number, 9871010101, to unite and connect all like-minded people to join this political revolution and achieve a dream of a corruption free India. We staunchly reject corruption with focus only on work and policies whose ultimate beneficiaries should be the people of our country,” said the statement.
Moreover, the AAP will contest the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) elections to be held in August-September this year where it plans to field candidates in all 198 wards. The Delhi victory has given a major boost to AAP in Bengaluru where it has been reaching out to people with its ground work and working on the election campaign. AAP has opened around 10 offices and 50 people have been absorbed including as ward and assembly president.
