Boosted by the audience that the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) received at Jantar Mantar on Saturday, the party has decided to push ahead with its Delhi Dialogues. It said the next event will be held on November 26 and they will be discussing “women’s issues” in Delhi.
The day will also mark the second anniversary of the party’s formation, which formally came into being on November 26, 2012.
Party members said the Dialogues had received an “excellent response” on social media. The AAP is now looking at ways to respond to queries put to them by those who attended the event on Saturday.
“Following the successful and highly enthusiastic launch of the Youth Dialogue, the AAP’s Delhi Dialogue team is now preparing for the next step — Initiatives for women. This will be unveiled on November 26, the second foundation day of the party. Delhi Dialogue will now proceed in a phased manner. The lead team will continue its deliberations with various sections of society to highlight issues concerning their lives, so that these can form an important part of the AAP Delhi manifesto. At the same time, the research team will compile feedback from people on each respective initiative,” a statement issued by the party said.
With the party looking for feedback on issues that will be included in the manifesto for the upcoming Assembly polls, the AAP said that “responses were being solicited across social media platforms”.
“The process of deliberations with experts, academics, professionals, think-tanks and research institutions to draw out a concrete and realistic plan for Delhi will be intensified in the coming days. During the Youth Dialogue, party volunteers received 1,543 questions from the audience. The research team is now working to send responses of the queries received,” the statement said.
