PAA to run in upcoming Haryana municipal elections on party symbol

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has decided to contest the upcoming municipal elections in Haryana on the party symbol and the candidates will be announced after party supremo Arvind Kejriwal’s May 29 rally in Kurukshetra.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has decided to contest the upcoming municipal elections in Haryana on the party symbol and the candidates will be announced after party supremo Arvind Kejriwal’s May 29 rally in Kurukshetra.

This was announced on Wednesday by Haryana party leader and Rajya Sabha member Sushil Gupta. “An exercise is underway to select the candidates and an investigation is being carried out in this context. The party will present candidates in the 28 municipal committees and 18 municipal councils that will go to the polls on June 19,” Gupta told reporters.

The submission of applications will begin on May 30, while the examination of applications will take place on June 6. The results will be announced on June 22.

Gupta said the AAP will present candidates with a clean image and no criminal cases. He said unemployment, corruption, the poor state of public schools and the state’s rickety health infrastructure would be the party’s main election issues.

“The AAP is the only political party capable of eradicating corruption. We have proven it in Delhi and now in Punjab. A wave of change is sweeping across Haryana,” he said, adding that the AAP will launch a grassroots anti-corruption crusade in the state.
