Hoping to ride on the popularity it got in Delhi elections, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Wednesday announced that they will now fight “elections not just in Delhi but countrywide … from Kashmir to Kanyakumari”.
The party also cautioned its leaders against success going into their head and advised them – whether those who won or lost – to go amidst public and start serving them. AAP also sought donation from people stating that they will now need more money to fight election in Delhi and elsewhere.
Led by Arvind Kejriwal, AAP leaders including 28 candidates who won the Delhi elections and those who lost, alongwith its supporters and volunteers gathered at Jantar Mantar on Wednesday evening to decide the way ahead.
It was Manish Sisodia, who first announced that AAP is going to go national . “We will fight Delhi’s re-election ... Why only Delhi we will fight form Kashmir se Kanyakumari. Now it will be Jhadu from Kashmir to Kanyakumari. We are getting calls from across country, who want, AAP’s jhadu to come and clean the rotten system in their areas,” he said. However, the loudest cheer by the crowd of around 5,000 was reserved for Arvind Kejriwal.
