AAP's Tiranga Yatra: With an eye on forthcoming Assembly elections in Rajasthan, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convenor and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal along with his Punjab counterpart Bhagwant Mann will take out the 'Tiranga Yatra' in Jaipur on Monday, March 13.
According to reports, both leaders are also expected to address a public meeting at Ajmeri Gate before the commencement of the yatra. Vinay Mishra, the AAP's in-charge for Rajasthan, announced that the party will begin its election preparations in Rajasthan through the 'Tiranga Yatra'.
He further claimed that the party has enrolled as many as 4.50 lahks new members in just 15 days. "Keeping in view the response of the people, we have organised the Tiranga Yatra programme. AAP will actively contest the next Assembly elections in Rajasthan," he added.
Congress and BJP in collusion: AAP
Further, Mishra also claimed that Congress and the BJP were in collusion.
"Wherever they see a threat from the Aam Aadmi Party, both become one. The same game of collusion is going on in Rajasthan as well. When we wanted to 'gherao' the BJP state headquarters, the Congress government here stopped us through the police. The people have understood that this game of their collusion is not going to last long," he remarked.
There is a possibility that after the public meeting on Monday, Arvind Kejriwal may announce the party's Rajasthan unit president. Besides, appointments could also be announced for other important posts of the state executive, said sources, as per IANS news agency.
