New Delhi: Ahead of the upcoming Municipal Corporation of Delhi’s elections, Aam Aadmi Party is aggressively campaigning for the polls. AAP’s Delhi unit convenor Gopal Rai on Thursday, November 10, 2022, inaugurated the party’s “war room” for the elections which will help them in conducting the nomination process, social media campaigns, among other necessary management activities required for the polls.
“The war room will have a set of 10 tasks, including booth management, candidate monitoring, social media campaign and star campaigners,” Gopal Rai said.
So far, the candidates for the election have not been nominated and the selection process is underway, as informed by Gopal Rai.
Earlier, after AAP Chief Arvind Kejriwal chaired a crucial meeting with senior MLAs and office-bearers to review the party’s preparations, Delhi’s deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia later told the media that Kejriwal, on Thursday, will launch the “highly successful” “Kejriwal’s 10 guarantees” campaign for the upcoming MCD polls. Sisodia also said the meeting took note of how “disastrous” the 15-year tenure of the BJP has been in the MCD. The AAP leader said they discussed in detail what the party plans to do for the common man of Delhi through the MCD.
The 250-ward Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) goes to polls on December 4 and the counting of votes will take place on December 7.
The BJP has been in power in the MCD – trifurcated in 2012 into north, south and east corporations and then unified this year – for three straight terms. The high-stake civic polls are largely being seen as a three-way contest between the BJP, the AAP and the Congress.
