New Delhi, December 21
The Aam Aadmi Party needs to set a target of winning more seats in the upcoming election than in the 2015 polls when it secured 67 of the 70 Assembly seats, Delhi Chief Minister and party’s national convener Arvind Kejriwal told party members on Saturday.
Elections to the Delhi Assembly are due early next year. The national capital is set to witness a triangular fight with the AAP seeking to retain power by defeating the BJP and Congress. This time, Prashant Kishor-led political consultancy firm I-PAC has come on board with the AAP to help in its election campaign. Kejriwal said AAP members should fight the upcoming election with all their strength.
“Just over a month is left for the Delhi Assembly elections and since the city is the AAP’s base — from where it all started — we have to fight the election strongly,” he told party members at its eighth national council meeting.
“Our target is also very big. Last time, we won 67 seats. This time, we should not get less than that but more,” he said. He advised party members and volunteers to take up whatever responsibility that are assigned to them for the poll campaign in earnest.
According to sources, the AAP has called all its party members and volunteers to the national capital for preparation and campaigning for the Assembly election due in Delhi next year. — PTI
