Haseeb-ul-Hasan, a former councillor for the Aam Aadmi Party, on Sunday climbed a transmission tower in front of the Shastri Park metro station in Delhi to voice his opposition to the party's allegedly unwise policies.

Many people urged him to stop and questioned his decision to climb the tower. Haseeb-ul-Hasan expressed his displeasure at not receiving an AAP ticket for the next MCD elections. The leader of the AAP insisted repeatedly that, "No poll ticket, won't come down."

Haseeb-ul-Hasan represents Gandhi Nagar in East Delhi as an AAP councillor. Hasan was requested to complete all the paperwork since he anticipated receiving the ticket from this constituency. He said that he had not received his original paperwork back. But this is not the first time he's done something similar. Haseeb-ul-Hasan was observed cleaning a drain by diving into it earlier in March. He then had a milk bath. He is known for taking dramatic steps every time.

Meanwhile, AAP released its first list of 134 candidates for the Delhi MCD elections. 70 women received tickets out of the 134 candidates on the list, and the AAP nominated former Naraina MLA Vijender Garg in the MCD elections.
