Delhi done, AAP plans to spread wings

Meanwhile, the Maharashtra AAP unit has set the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) as its next target.

After Delhi, the AAP has now set its eyes set on upcoming polls in other parts of the country.

On Tuesday, AAP MLA Jarnail Singh, who was elected from Rajouri Garden, said, “This is a symbolic result. People have rejected the Akali-BJP’s unholy alliance. They just allied to get votes but forgot the region affected by the drug issue. This will send a message to Punjab’s voters, who now have an alternative. We will repeat this success in Punjab.”

Meanwhile, the Maharashtra AAP unit has set the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) as its next target. Following the AAP’s dismal performance in the Lok Sabha polls, the party decided to work on strengthening its units in various states before contesting any more polls. The party’s strategy, however, seems to have changed after Tuesday’s results.

“There is no need to wait any more. We are ready to enter BMC and we are hoping that Arvind Kejriwal will deliver what is expected of him over the next two years in time for the civic elections in Mumbai,” said Mayank Jain, secretary of AAP’s Mumbai unit.
