To get people’s support, the membership drive of the party will be held from Monday till March 22 in over 12,000 wards in various cities across Uttar Pradesh.
“AAP will contest the panchayat elections (likely in October-November) in Uttar Pradesh,” Sanjay Singh added.
On the other hand, Uttar Pradesh AAP spokesperson said that five ministers with origins in the state have been made ministers in Delhi government. “They will play a key role in various campaigns by the party,” he added.
Alleging that hooliganism and anarchy were at its peak in Uttar Pradesh, Sanjay Singh said attempts were being made under the present dispensation to harm the democratic fabric of the society.
“All sections of society are fed up with this government. But the CM is busy patting his back and talking falsely about development,” he alleged, adding only the AAP could provide clean governance to the state.
