New Delhi, (11/3/2019): The ruling AAP in Delhi launched its mega campaign for Lok Sabha polls, with full statehood as its central theme, staging a protest near BJP headquarters on Sunday and DPCC today over the issue.
Today, AAP volunteers and its frontal organisations protested near DPCC, demanding the party to clear its stand on full statehood to Delhi.
Aam Aadmi Party organized a press conference during which AAP Convenor Gopal Rai briefs media about the central theme of AAP for the Lok Sabha Elections which will start from 11th April.
Gopal Rai, AAP Convenor, during the press conference said, “The Lok Sabha election will decide the fate of the country and also of Delhi, which was badly hurt during the “dictatorship” of the BJP-led dispensation at the Centre”.
Rai said the people of Delhi were eagerly awaiting the announcement of the Lok Sabha election dates, and added it will give them relief from the “autocracy” of the Modi government and its policies.
“Full statehood is the only way to end the autocracy of the Centre. It is central theme of AAP’s mega election campaign because we feel it is the only way to speed up development work in Delhi,” he said at a press conference.
“The AAP will also force Congress and BJP to clear their stand on full statehood by holding regular ‘gherao’ of leaders and offices of the two parties”, he added.
The party has designed a three-tier campaign in the first phase of which 1,000 teams will go door to door, covering seven Lok Sabha constituencies divided into 560 zones, and distribute the Delhi chief minister’s letter to people on full statehood.
