Boosted by favourable exit poll predictions, the AAP on Monday put in place elaborate arrangements to celebrate the results. Taking a leaf out of the BJP’s ‘Selfie with Modi’ campaign, AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal met volunteers for a ‘selfie’ opportunity at the Constitution Club in the evening.
Expressing gratitude to volunteers from his New Delhi constituency, Kejriwal urged them to join him at the Patel Nagar office on Tuesday morning — the day of counting of votes.
Meanwhile, the party’s centre shifted to its three-storey East Patel Nagar office from North Avenue, where a podium for mediapersons was set up.
“The street in front of the office will be made vehicle-free on Tuesday. We have already spoken to police about this. A 100-feet-long podium is also being put up for mediapersons,” an AAP volunteer said.
Senior leaders, including Kejriwal, Manish Sisodia, Kumar Vishwas, Yogendra Yadav and Sanjay Singh, are expected to reach Patel Nagar at 8 am on Tuesday. Star campaigners Vishal Dadlani and Raghu Ram will also be present at the AAP office for the election results.
Moreover, the party is expected to put in place four LED screens on which information about counting of votes will be broadcast. The AAP office will also be covered with banners and posters.
“If results turn out to be in line with exit poll predictions, we have made enough arrangements for celebrations — brooms, party caps, colours and placards. Arrangements are also being made for dance and music,” the volunteer said.
Kejriwal is also likely to address the audience at Patel Nagar office while the results trickle in.
