The Gujarati community forms a sizable chunk of Mumbai’s voters and AAP wants to tap into the community.
“The Aam Aadmi Party means business and has a vision for Mumbai, to change it for the better. Right from the freedom movement, it is the middle classes that have provided leadership across the board. We are confident that the newly launched Gujarati wing will provide an opportunity for good governance, clean politics and a new political culture,” said Rupareliya.
“It is an honour for us to start the Gujarati wing in Mumbai. It will give us an opportunity to serve the community, as well as enhance their representation in civic politics.” said Sandeep Mehta, AAP Mumbai’s Gujarati wing president.
