Nascent political outfit Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) today figured out a two-pronged strategy to battle its opponents: expose the corruption in the government and reach out to the masses as as a clean and non-traditional political party. The Arvind Kejriwal-founded party is focussing on the Delhi assembly elections 2013 and will raise issues like hike in power tariff and inflation.
"We will continue to expose corruptions as we did before launching the political party," activist-turned-politician Kejriwal told reporters after the conclusion of AAP's two-day national executive meeting in Ghaziabad on Wednesday.
AAP spokesperson Gopal Rai said, "Delhi will be the main centre of our activities as the party has planned to contest elections here. From 10 December we will begin Jansampark Abhiyan in Delhi. We will move to each house and create awareness. A survey will also be conducted and feedback of people will be taken."
Along with Rai, Anand Kumar, Manish Sisodia and Sanjay Singh were also appointed as spokespersons of the party.
Kumar Yogendra Yadav will oversee the formation of subject committees which will reflect AAP's ideology on issues like FDI, land acquisition, reservation and nuclear policy, the media was informed.
The party also formed a political affairs committee consisting of Gopal Rai, Manish Sisodia, Iliyas Azmi, Arvind Kejriwal, Sanjay Singh, Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan.
Kejriwal, who is the national convener for AAP, is expected to discharge his duties in consultation with the committee.
While AAP has started forming district committees in 15 states, the state committees will come into being after the Republic Day on 26 January.
