The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) that seeks to prepare a political ground for itself in Rajasthan in the coming Lok Sabha elections, has set its focus on its membership drive in the state. The party has set up booths at circles and public places in the state where AAP workers encourage people to join the party.
Sensing that the maximum number of members in the state will be decisive for the success of the party in the state, the AAP is focussing more on making as many members as it can ahead of the parliamentary elections.
AAP has announced to contest on all 25 Lok Sabha seats in Rajasthan and in order to get maximum memberships it has intensified its drive in the state. The party has appointed conveners in all the Assembly areas including Jaipur and these conveners will be taking care of membership drives in their areas. As per the strategy chalked out by the party, AAP has decided to seek memberships by setting up booths at public places rather than engaging in door-to-door membership campaigns.
In order to get maximum response, there are special drives on Saturdays and Sundays as these days are holidays in government officers and school-colleges. According to party sources, AAP will be forming its own team at the polling booths before the Lok Sabha polls. In addition to the membership drive going on in full swing, the party is also in the process of seeking suitable candidates for the parliamentary polls. The AAP party is expected to declare the names of candidates by February end or the first week of March.
Sources said that people have come up in large numbers to seek AAP’s membership after the party has given relief to people in Delhi. Also, people have found AAP as the third option other than the Congress and the BJP, sources add.
