In-charge to be appointed on booth-level to assume significant role in the AAP
New Delhi : With simmering discontent among volunteers after the rout in the Lok Sabha polls, AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday announced rehaul of the party structure at the ground level and said he would monitor all the arrangements in Delhi.
Kejriwal also admitted that resigning as Delhi Chief Minister without taking advice of people was a mistake and asked for their “forgiveness” and sought “one more chance”.
“We have set up the organisation and that has to start from the booth level for which we would hire booth in-charge. The booth in-charge will have some volunteers working under him and will also be responsible for direct contact with voters,” he told a volunteers meeting.
“Over every booth in-charge would be a polling station in-charge, but the responsibility would be fixed on the booth in-charge failing which he would be removed. But after the government formation, it is the booth in-charge’s view that would carry more weightage in developmental work in the area,” he said.
Kejriwal also asked his volunteers to go to reach out to people as Delhi Assembly dissolution could be announced anytime now.
“Elections could take place in October. Since you (volunteers) are the ones who will meet the people, they are bound to ask why we quit. There is no harm to admit that we made a mistake in quitting (without consulting people). Ask for their forgiveness and for one more chance. This time we will run the government for full five years,” he claimed.
“Tell them that if we did a good a job in 49 days during which electricity and water bills were brought down and corruption rate declined. Imagine what will we do if we run the government for five years. And let me assure that we are not
going anywhere. We are not leaving Delhi,” he said. -PTI
