After taking up issues related to women and the youth, the AAP will out reach to voters from rural areas in their next Delhi Dialogue on Sunday. The party, on Saturday, announced that it will give special status to villages.

At the earlier Dialogues, the party had spoken about setting up colleges and sports infrastructure in rural areas. “The thrust will be on giving special status to villages. We intend to bring in administrative reforms by reviewing some sections of the Delhi Land Reforms Act. We also intend to review Lal Dora areas of Delhi,” senior leader Ashish Khetan said.

In the Assembly elections in 2013, the party did not win constituencies that comprise Delhi’s rural areas. So it is making special efforts to improve their performance and has announced two Dialogues on rural issues.

“Tomorrow’s Dialogue will focus on villages in the outskirts of the capital. The second one will be held in January to focus on issues of urban villages,” spokesperson Ashutosh said.

“The Village Dialogues will focus on the interests and welfare of the residents of 362 villages in the capital. They have been neglected for the past 66 years. For inclusive growth of Delhi, the rural population needs to be given attention. These areas should be made self-sufficient,” Khetan said.

          I must say this Jansabha was the first in the history of India which focussed entirely on the issues of rural problems.Land acquisition by the government at throw-away prices and then of it to make big profit.......first time a political party addresses this issue honestly.Their blue-print to develop Delhi villages is superb!s:www.youtube/watch?...

            AAP leads from front this time- they have the good fortune of being the party who has fulfilled its manifesto promises as a minority Govt- people are aware that in majority -AAP is capable of bringing forth the change that is needed..Once we used to say that India lives in its Villages-about 70% of us - that number is naturally changing as farming is losing its monetary and respect value..The infrastructure too is very poor...The vision AAP has for Delhi is positive and ground breaking. No other party is discussing growth of villages, air and water quality.No one is near to talking about solar energy! This round wholly and solely belongs to Arvind Kejriwal..BJP with its battery of 300 MPs-200 of which are good only for spreading communal hatred -and some others who are ex congress-so correct me if I'm wrong that unless BJP starts fulfilling its manifesto promises from LS elections -how dare they make any more promises. If they were serious-should they not have made Delhi a full state already? Should they not have brought the electricity bill down by 30% already..Are they only good for Blah blah blah?Delhi belongs to AAP-and that is getting clearer day by day
