Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday, after the National Council meeting of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), announced that AAP has decided to contest elections in 6 states i.e. Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Goa, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, and Gujarat in the next 2 years.
“People are talking about good governance of Aam Aadmi Party in Delhi. Everywhere in India, people want power and water subsidies, and welfare schemes like Delhi, and hence we need to bridge the gaps,” he said.
“In the next two years, AAP will contest elections in 6 states i.e. Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Goa, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, and Gujarat,” said Arvind Kejriwal at the national council meeting of AAP held at Kapashera.
It was the first meeting after the February 2020 assembly elections in the national capital.
He also highlighted how the party has not stepped back from accepting challenges in the last few months for open debates on schools and governance models with ministers in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand.
Talking about violence during the tractor march in Delhi on Republic Day, Kejriwal said, “Violence of January 26 was unfortunate and strict action should be taken against anyone who was actually responsible for it.”
“Whatever happened on that day cannot stop this movement. We all should support farmers but in a peaceful manner,” he said.
