AAP to contest 403 seats in Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls, no talks for any alliance
Asserting that the party's focus is to strengthen its base in Uttar Pradesh, AAP leader Sanjay Singh said that AAP has secured over one crore members in the past one and a half months.
As Uttar Pradesh gears up for Assembly polls, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Sunday asserted that it would contest all 403 seats in the state.
Giving out further details, senior AAP leader Sanjay Singh said it would be a mistake to consider AAP a minnow as it had emerged “stronger" than the Congress in the recent panchayat polls. The Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP made it clear that it is not in talks with any other party for an alliance in the UP Assembly election due early next year.
“Our party is stronger than the Congress in the state. While the Congress won 40 seats in panchayat polls, we scored a victory in 83 panchayats. AAP got over 40 lakh votes in these polls, where 1600 party candidates contested," Singh, who is AAP’s UP incharge, told PTI.
Asserting that the party's focus is to strengthen its base in Uttar Pradesh, he said that AAP has secured over one crore members in the past one and a half months.
Singh also said that BJP's nationalism was fake and full of hatred. Adding further on AAP's nationalism, he said, PTI reported.
Earlier in the day, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was re-elected as the national convenor of the AAP for the third time at the national executive meeting of the party on Sunday, according to an official statement. Party leaders Pankaj Gupta and ND Gupta were elected as secretary and treasurer, respectively, it said.
Notably, 34 members of the National Executive have the power to elect the National Convenor of the party.
Arvind Kejriwal will be the Aam Aadmi Party’s National Convenor for the next 5 years.
