Newly-launched political party Swaraj India, which held a two-day meet in Himachal Pradesh’s Palampur to chart out its political roadmap, has decided to contest the municipal polls in Delhi next year. The 17-member Presidium, the highest decision-making body of the party, concluded that it was prepared to contest the municipal polls on all seats, expected to be held in the middle of next year.
Swaraj India, led by former AAP leader Yogendra Yadav, will contest against the BJP and the Congress, as well as the AAP, which will also make its electoral debut in the municipal polls next year. The AAP had contested in 13 seats in the municipal bypolls earlier this year and managed to win five of them.
“We are prepared to contest on all the MCD seats and hence the Presidium has unanimously decided to go ahead with it. An eight-member empowered election team, led by the party’s general secretary Ajit Jha, has been formed to oversee the preparations in Delhi. As for the states going for assembly polls, state teams and observers will complete a ground assessment at the earliest and a final call will be taken after that,” said Presidium member and national spokesperson Anupam. The party will launch a campaign in the coming months.
