AAP Vows to Decriminalise Gay Sex in Mumbai Manifesto

Decriminalisation of gay sex by repealing section 377 of the IPC, bringing more women officers in the police force and "zero tolerance" for crimes against women are some of the promises made by the Aam Aadmi Party, which today unveiled its Mumbai-centric "sankalp patra".

"Mumbai is special (in itself)," activist-turned-politician and AAP's candidate from Mumbai North East seat Medha Patkar said.

The "sankalp patra" was released at a press conference in the presence of the AAP candidates who are contesting from all six Lok Sabha seats in Mumbai.

Laying emphasis on the eradication of corruption, the Arvind Kejriwal-led party, which is contesting all 48 seats in Maharashtra, also promised repealing section 377 of IPC, if voted to power.

"What we are doing in bedroom that should not be the concern of government," said AAP leader Mayank Gandhi who is contesting from Mumbai North West constituency on the party's ticket.

The AAP manifesto also promised "enacting and implementing the Jan Lokpal Bill in Maharashtra and implementation of all recommendations made by the Justice Verma Committee".

Other points mentioned in the manifesto include: ensuring collaboration with citizens to form neighbourhood watch groups to facilitate effective policing, and zero tolerance towards violence against women.
