Pune, 12th September 2023: Following their participation in the Lok Sabha and Assembly elections, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has declared its intent to contest local body elections, including the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC), in Maharashtra. AAP MP Sanjay Singh made this announcement during a public event held in Pune on Monday.

The Mahasankalp public meeting, organized on behalf of the Maharashtra unit of AAP, served as the platform for the announcement. Sanjay Singh addressed the gathering during this event, with several prominent AAP leaders in attendance, including Gopal Italia, the Maharashtra co-in-charge, State Vice President Vijay Kumbhar, Dhananjay Shinde, Ajit Phatke, Sandeep Desai, Navinder Ahluwalia, Riyaz Pathan, Ajit Khot, Hanumant Chate, Manish Modak, Bhushan Dhakulkar, Chandan Pawar, Kanishk Jadhav, and Mukund Kirdat, among others.

MP Singh expressed his confidence in AAP’s potential to replicate its success in Delhi and Punjab in the state of Maharashtra. He stated, “Aam Aadmi Party has come to power in the states of Delhi and Punjab after a transformation. I believe that the same will be repeated in Maharashtra now.”

Singh also criticized the tactics employed by powerful political parties, accusing Prime Minister Narendra Modi of undermining opposition governments through agencies like the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) while installing BJP-led governments. He further alleged that the BJP had sowed divisions among people based on caste and accused industrialist Adani of wielding undue influence, asserting that “the planes flying in the sky belong to Adani, the sea belongs to Adani, the coal belongs to Adani, so Narendra Modi is only the Prime Minister of Adani.”

Furthermore, Singh highlighted concerns surrounding the BJP government, including farmers’ anxieties, rising inflation affecting the common man, and widespread corruption issues plaguing the nation.

AAP’s decision to enter the fray of local elections in Maharashtra, including the Pune Municipal Corporation, signals their commitment to expanding their political presence in the state.
