Ahead of polls, AAP launches east Delhi dialogue for its leader Atishi
NEW DELHI: The AAP on Thursday launched east Delhi dialogue for its leader Atishi who is the Lok Sabha in-charge of the constituency and most likely to fight the 2019 election. The party with this launch would focus to reach out to the middle-class people of the constituency.
"I had the opportunity to transform over 1,000 Delhi government schools during my tenure as Advisor to the Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia. I would like to continue this good work as an elected representative and as a Member of Parliament," Atishi said.
Explaining her vision building plan, Atishi said, "I signed up as the verified decision maker on change.org in an attempt to bridge the gap between me and my constituency. I want to hear first hand from my constituents on what governance issues bother them so that I can focus on them in my manifesto for East Delhi."
The inputs received from Change.org users will be used to engage with communities that are affected by the same issues under the "East Delhi Dialogue", which is being planned by the party to address issues of residents in the constituency.
"As a verified Decision Maker, Atishi will monitor change.org petitions addressed to her and respond to them with her comments. She will collate the ideas put forth through these petitions for building an election agenda and consider them for further action," said a leader.
Atishi joined the ranks of leaders across party lines who have signed up as verified Decision Makers on change.org, including Maneka Gandhi, Devendra Fadnavis, Satyender Jain and Tathagatha Satpathy.
Atishi served as an advisor from July 2015 to April 17, 2018, and was also involved in drafting the manifesto of the party in the 2015 Delhi Assembly elections.
Earlier, as an advisor of education department the projects she headed include Mission Buniyad that aims to improve learning levels of primary and secondary students and the Teacher Development Coordinator Programme designed to create a platform for peer learning among teachers, dealing with the grievances and inputs from School Management Committees and for restructuring the directorate of education.
