Washington: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal plans to hold hang outs with his supporters in the US and Canada later this month, seeking contribution from the Indian diaspora to nation building.
Kejriwal would hold the hang outs on October 20, a statement issued through Bay Area chapter of AAP, USA said.
“We see expatriate Indians as an integral part of India. They have plenty to contribute to the country in terms of know-how and expertise in every possible field imaginable,” Kejriwal said in the statement.
“Most importantly, they are eager to give back to their mother land. We will leave no stone unturned when it comes to tapping into this resource,” he said.
“I am looking forward to hosting this special get together at my home with my friends and family. They are keen on hearing Arvind first hand. I am sure this will have a ripple effect as they carry AAP’s message to their respective circle of friends,” AAP volunteer in US, Mohan Thirumalai, said.
We anticipate a significant turnout with thousands of attendees as volunteers reach out to their respective networks, a Chicago-based organization development consultant, Shalini Gupta said.
Formally launched in November 2012, the party is contesting its first election – the assembly polls in Delhi — in December 2013.
