PUNE: Aiming to replicate the success of Delhi in Maharashtra, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), has begun preparations ahead of the 2019 elections in the State and has launched ‘Mission CM,’ to find a Chief Ministerial candidate from among the youths, whom they have appealed to come forward and apply for the post. The AAP announced its plans in a conference recently.
AAP, which had created history in Delhi in 2015 by winning 67 of the 70 seats in the assembly elections, said that if it is given a chance, it can replicate the success in Maharashtra too.
For this, it says, it needs ‘corruption fighters’, ‘courageous political leaders’ and ‘brave volunteers’. These, according to the AAP, will help them create a clean and democratic atmosphere in the State.
The AAP has also claimed that it is the ‘fastest growing party’ in the country. Sudhir Sawant, who is a former MP and Brigadier, has taken charge of the party in the State.
The State committee of the party had resigned earlier in lieu of the treatment meted out to Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan, who had found the party along with Arvind Kejriwal.
The committee has been reconstituted with new members now, according to a party member.
The party has asked youths to come forward and work hard as the chief ministerial candidate for the party.
In a statement, it says, “The country needs more Kejriwals. Any person with honesty and courage has the opportunity to be the CM candidate for the party in the State. If you are ready to dedicate yourself to the cause, come forward with a plan and a pitch, and without paying any money, you can get a party ticket and complete support from the party.”
