Mayank Gandhi denied that the Delhi victory was due to Anna Hazare movement or the Delhi gang rape and asserted that the party achieved the success on the issue of inflation and corruption
Aurangabad : The national executive member of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Mayank Gandhi, and state convener, Anjali Damaina, said their party is needed in Maharashtra more than Delhi as the State is deeply mired in corruption and fed up with politics based on caste, creed, religion and regions. The two-day state-level meeting of the party’s office- bearers concluded here on Sunday and Monday.
Addressing a press conference on the valedictory day, Mayank-Damania duo said, “Both components of the ruling alliance, Congress and NCP, are corrupt and indulge in casteist and communal politics. The parties in Opposition namely BJP, Shiv Sena and MNS are no different from them. The People are looking for a clean alternative free from all these things”.
“This fact forces us to shift our focus on Maharashtra as thousands of people related to various movements, NGOs and dissidents of established political parties are joining AAP. We will give an acceptable alternative to the people of Maharashtra”, they added.
On a question pertaining to the Delhi Assembly polls success of the party, Mayank Gandhi denied that it was because of Anna Hazare movement and the Delhi gang rape and asserted that the party achieved the success on the issue of inflation and corruption. AAP hasn’t made any dreamy promise to voters in its manifesto, but all promises will be fulfilled within half an year or one year. Nothing is impractical or impossible, if corruption is not there.
The leaders announced that AAP has now come into the election mode. The applications for the candidature of the coming Lok Sabha elections have been invited from activists. The form has been uploaded on the party’s website, which aspiring candidates have to download, fill and forward to the party.
