Pune: Despite installing 600-odd spy cameras in Pune, the Aam Aadami Party in Pune couldn't manage any political Dhamaka. However, after tasting success in Delhi at the assemble election, the party is still hopeful of it being a useful exercise as it gears up to install CCTV cameras in Mumbai, two days before the state capital goes to polls on April 24.

AAP had set up cameras in the Pune Lok Sabha constituency to keep a vigil on violation on modal code of conduct prior to the elections. While all the gathered footage has been checked, hardly any meaningful was retrieved from the network.
AAP spokesperson Tanmay Kanitkar told dna, that a few youngsters talking about money being distributed at certain place had been captured in the footage, but nothing concrete. He said that they expect to these cameras to capture actual money distribution for buying votes, intimidation of voters, or threatening for votes but nothing of that nature was recorded. Although the exercise failed, AAP has still decided to go ahead and deploy spy cameras for the Mumbai elections. Kanitkar said that experts from the Mumbai team had come to Pune to install the spy camera network.

'Raise your voice'
AAP had organised a meeting of voters whose names had been deleted from the voters' list at its office at Aashirwad Mangal Karyalay in Mehunpura. The meeting was held at 6pm where AAP appealed to the citizens to air their grievance.
