Gopal Rai, AAP’s Delhi convener
NEW DELHI: Aam Aadmi Party has started strengthening its organisation in the wake of the 2022 municipal elections with an objective to oust BJP from power in the municipal corporations. As part of the organisation restructuring exercise, AAP has appointed Lok Sabha in-charge, district in-charge, district communication in-charge and assembly observers in all the 70 assembly constituencies.
Gopal Rai, AAP’s Delhi convener, said in the second phase, AAP will appoint in-charge for all the 70 assembly constituencies. In the third phase, the party will appoint in-charge in all the 272 wards, he added.
The AAP leaders who performed in the assembly polls and those who played a significant role during the Covid-19 crisis in ration and food distribution, in creating awareness about proper sanitisation and ensuring social distancing have been recognised and given bigger responsibilities.
“We are giving priority to the leaders who worked hard during the assembly polls and the Covid pandemic. The restructuring process is happening from the top to the booth level,” Rai said. The party had lost to BJP in the 2017 municipal elections. AAP, however, won the assembly election early this year with a brute majority, winning 62 of the 70 seats despite BJP mounting a very aggressive election campaign.
