After Delhi boom, Aam Aadmi Party pins hope on NCR

Ghaziabad, December 10:

After registering a stunning debut in Delhi, the Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) hopes to cash in on its success by spreading its wings to the national capital region in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections.

In the Delhi assembly polls, many residents of Ghaziabad, Gautambudh Nagar (Noida), Gurgaon, Faridabad, Meerut, and Jaipur played a vital role during electioneering, AAP activists said, adding that these cities fall near Delhi and would surely have an impact of the Delhi outcome.

"We are very sure that party would do better in the seats falling in Delhi-NCR in the General Elections," said senior AAP leader and MLA Manish Sisodia.

There are seven Lok Sabha seats in Delhi while Gurgaon, Ghaziabad, Gautam Budh Nagar, Meerut, Faridabad, Rohtak, Hissar, Kurushetra, Jaipur and Sonipat have one seat each.

"Party supporters have started preparation of the General Elections in Gautam Budh Nagar, comprising Noida and Greater Noida. We would appeal residents to help party win as Delhi's voters have given their support in the Assembly elections," said Anoop Khanna, a Noida-based AAP supporter.

Like Noida, Ghaziabad-based party activists hope that with AAP in the fray the monopoly of Samajwadi Party, Bahujan Samaj Party and BJP in the region would come to an end.

"Arvind Kejriwal has changed the mindset of common people. If the party contests in the Lok Sabha elections, it would get a huge support from people residing in Delhi-NCR. When Anna Hazare was on an indefinite fast in Delhi, around ten thousand residents of Noida had gone to join Anna," said Mahesh Sexena, general secretary, Noida Lok Manch, an NGO.
