AAP to Launch Campaign for LS Polls From Haryana

A day after Arvind Kejriwal's resignation as Delhi Chief Minister, AAP today announced that it will launch its campaign for Lok Sabha polls from February 23 with a rally at Rohtak in Haryana.

Speaking to reporters after the Political Affairs Committee (PAC) meeting, party leader Yogendra Yadav said, the the rally will be addressed by party's national convenor Arvind Kejriwal.

After Haryana, the party will hold its second rally at Kanpur in Uttar Pradesh on March 2, he said.

"Both these rallies would launch Aam Aadmi Party's national campaign," Yadav said.

The party also announced to kickstart its nation-wide anti-corruption campaign 'Jhadu Chalao Yatra' from today.

"In 332 Lok Sabha seats of 24 states, around 2,500 Yatra starting from today will be organised in the next ten days. We would expose Congress and BJP for defending corrupt persons during this campaign. Besides, party will also make new members in this campaign," party leader Gopal Rai said.

Of the 2,627 yatras in the campaign, the party will undertake a chunk of it around 461 in Uttar Pradesh, followed by 450 in Haryana and over 300 in Maharashtra, 270 in Bihar and 174 in Punjab.

These are the states where the party has been aiming to dent the Congress and the BJP strongholds.

Kerjriwal yesterday resigned as Delhi Chief Minister shortly after his government was defeated on the issue of tabling of the Jan Lokpal Bill in Delhi Assembly in the face of a united resistance by outside supporter Congress and BJP.
