Long rule by the opposition parties have transformed the Municipal Corporation of Delhi into dens of corruption and misgovernance. After sweeping the State Assembly polls, the Aam Aadmi Party intends to repeat its resounding victory in municipal elections as well.

For ensuring such a remarkable feat, the party has decided to run a sustained campaign to expose BJP’s corruption and misgovernance in municipal bodies.

The Delhi State unit of the Aam Aadmi Party convened a meeting at the Constitutional Club, which saw the participation of the state and district level office bearers, along with office bearers of frontal organizations and cells.

Addressing the gathering of office bearers, Delhi State Convenor Dilip Pandey laid out an aggressive strategy of how ward-level units of the Aam Aadmi Party will swing into action to expose and corner councilors, thereby holding them accountable for their misdeeds.

“Stories of monumental corruption by the BJP will reach every household in the city”, said Pandey

National Organization Building In-Charge Durgesh Pathak, underlined the importance of smooth coordination among office bearers of various frontal organizations.

“Participation of grass-root volunteers has made Delhi unit of Aam Aadmi Party a robust organization, which stunned the country by trouncing unstoppable Narendra Modi”, stated Pathak while adding that the Delhi Aam Aadmi Party will showcase itself as a model organization for other state units.

Addressing the gathering, Delhi State Secretary and MLA from Greater Kailash Saurabh Bhardwaj underlined key roles and responsibilities of the office bearers and said that their conduct in public will make or break party’s image.

Office bearers told the state leadership that there was a very positive feeling on the ground on the main election promises fulfilled by the AAP government in Delhi.

    The Absurdity of this Anti Corruption Party is the fact that they mention only BJP after the word Corruption, as if the Vatican has anointed Sonia Maino as the next Saint from India, No Wonder any or all opportunities to form a front involves unquestioning support from CONgress…This party is nothing but a platform created to break India into smaller states and finalize Radicalization of the subcontinent.

India began on Monday the first of five state elections to be held in coming weeks, important tests for Prime Minister Narendra Modi as he plots a course that he hopes will ensure him victory in a general election due by May.

Voters in the central state of Chhattisgarh went to the polls on Monday to elect representatives for 18 of the state assembly’s 90 seats in a staggered poll complicated by logistical problems and left-wing guerrillas.

The state of about 26 million people has been ruled by Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) since 2003, and he will be hoping to hold on to power.

“Some unholy people have handed guns to children who should have pens in their hands,” Modi told a rally in the state on Friday, referring to the rag-tag guerrillas battling government forces from forest hideouts. “They’ve finished the lives of our tribal children.”

Hundreds of election workers had to be flown in to remote polling stations by helicopter because of the danger posed by the rebels.

Modi called for voters to back his BJP and its vision of “development for all.”

The final phase of voting in Chhattisgarh, which is known for its coal, iron ore and bauxite reserves, will be on Nov. 20.

The BJP was the preference of about 43 percent of voters in Chhattisgarh, 7 percentage points ahead of the main opposition Congress party, according to a survey released last week by the Lokniti-Centre for the Study of Developing Societies.

Modi’s other big tests will be in the neighboring central state of Madhya Pradesh, where the BJP is slightly ahead of Congress, according to polls, and in the northwestern state of Rajasthan, where Congress is expected to emerge victorious.

A good performance by the BJP in the elections would help it deflect growing criticism over unemployment and a crisis in the countryside over falling farm prices and wages.

Elections will also be held for assemblies in Telangana in the south and Mizoram in the northeast.

The BJP has sent top leaders to campaign in Chhattisgarh, including Yogi Adityanath, a firebrand Hindu priest and the BJP chief minister in Uttar Pradesh state.

Adityanath has been appealing to the BJP’s Hindu-nationalist base and on Sunday accused the opposition of blocking construction of a temple for Hindu god Ram on a disputed site in Uttar Pradesh.

The destruction of a mosque on the site by a Hindu mob in 1992 sparked deadly riots across the country. (VOA)
