Mumbai: The Aam Aadmi Party will contest the Maharashtra Assembly polls likely to be held in September-October as the state was reeling under failure and systematic collapse, its national joint secretary Ruben Mascaren has said on Friday.
He claimed the party was foraying into the poll battle to save the "distressed" people of the state. "The Fadnavis government has been a colossal failure in Maharashtra.
Once a progressive state, it is now plagued by drought, floods, farmer suicides, agrarian distress, unemployment, failing law and order and crime," he said.
He said the opposition parties in the state were in disarray. The party’s campaign committee for the Maharashtra polls will have Ranga Rachure as convener, Kishore Mandhyan as co-convener and Dhananjay Shinde as secretary, he said.
Party leader Preeti Sharma Menon will be a member of the committee which will oversee poll preparations, Mascarenhas added.
