Will Contest At Least 25 Seats In Mizoram Next Year: AAP Leader | Popgen Tech
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is gearing up to contest at least 25 out of 40 seats in the Mizoram assembly polls, due next year, a senior party leader said today.
The president of the AAP organization in Mizoram Andrew Lalremkima, during a press conference, also said that the party is on the lookout for “suitable candidates” that it could nominate for the upcoming elections.
“We are on the hunt for strong and upright people who could field as party candidates for the assembly polls. We will contest at least 25 seats in Mizoram next year. Our leaders in Delhi, including party founder Arvind Kejriwal, will campaign for our candidate,” he said.
Lalremkima also pointed out that the barely ten-year-old Arvind Kejriwal-led party has secured the status of a national party after securing five seats and nearly 13 percent vote share in the recently concluded Gujarat assembly polls.
He claimed that his party would do well in Mizoram next year, and its “support base is steadily growing in the state”.
AAP is currently in power in Delhi and Punjab.
Joseph Biakthianghlima, AAP organizing secretary in Mizoram, told PTI that the party, which established its base in the state in April, has since been recruiting members.
“We will contest a minimum of 25 seats, if not more. Our party actually plans to field candidates from as many constituencies as possible,” Biakthianghlima added.
