The UK arm of the Aam Aadmi Party has raised Rs 15 lakhs for the upcoming assembly elections in Punjab and Goa, an overseas spokesperson of the party said on Friday.
The party’s UK workers said they had been working actively on a “Flame of Hope” campaign to achieve an AAP victory in the two state elections scheduled for next month. “So far, INR 15 lakhs has been raised and hundreds of volunteers have started call campaigning. Flame of Hope with a customised van designed for AAP UK was launched with huge celebration from Leamington Spa & Warwick on 18 December 2016 and has been stopping over at east London, Nottingham, Wolverhampton, Birmingham, said AAP UK spokesperson Sandeep Bisht.
“It is getting a huge turnout across the UK. The idea is to spread AAP Punjab and Goa manifesto with fundraising and call campaigning,” Bisht said.
