AAP to launch 'Your MLA and Councillor at your doorstep' campaign from Feb 15
NEW DELHI: From the already scheduled opposition rally to the "Your MLA and Councillor at your doorstep" initiative, the Aam Admi Party is all set to initiate its mega campaign for the coming Lok Sabha Election from this week. On February 13 the opposition rally will take place and from February 15 the door to door campaign by AAP lawmakers will kickstart.
AAP Delhi convener Gopal Rai said that after sweeping the 2015 Delhi Assembly elections, the AAP wants to bag the city's all seven Lok Sabha seats too. In the 2014 Lok Sabha polls, the BJP won all the seven seats but the AAP came second everywhere, stunning the Congress party legislators and corporators will interact with people and request them to throw the current BJP-led Central government out of power during the campaign. He said the AAP will host a mega rally of opposition parties against the 'dictatorial' central government at Jantar Mantar on February 13. "The AAP will intensify its fight against the Modi-Shah duo in Delhi after the February 13 rally. We will launch 'Your MLA and Councillor at your doorstep' campaign for the Lok Sabha elections from February 15," Rai said.
The leader also said that the party is yet to talk to the Congress Party regarding the invitation for the rally. "Invitation has been sent to all those who attended Mamata Banerjee's recent rally against the Modi government. We have not spoken to them (Congress) regarding the February 13 mega rally at Jantar Mantar," the Rai said.
Meanwhile, on Tuesday the party will hold a huge program to mark the completion of four years of the Delhi government. The AAP has already announced the names of the Lok Sabha in-charges at various parts of Delhi. However, the party is yet to announce the candidates for the coming poll.
Delhi Chief Minister and AAP national convenor Arvind Kejriwal on Monday also joined the hunger strike by Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandra Babu Naidu. The party has already announced that there would be no alliance between the Congress in Delhi and other states. However, the AAP has already given a clear message that the party is very much part of the grand alliance. "There is a political compulsion for every political party. The equation for states and the centre are different. We are not doing any alliance with Congress but we are with all the like-minded parties who are fighting save the democracy," said a senior leader.
