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.
