The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), which is not contesting the Haryana state election is now eyeing the various Municipal Corporation elections in the state, according to sources.

Speaking to HT, Yogendra Yadav, senior AAP leader, said party leaders had unanimously decided not to contest Vidhan Sabha election to focus on Delhi elections. But the party would continue to take up issues in the state. “There is no reason why we shouldn’t contest the municipal elections in the state. The decision to refrain from the state elections was taken as they coincided with probable elections in Delhi. However, we will try our best to reach out to the voters of Haryana,” said Yadav.

Party volunteers claimed that the party would now, once again, try to establish itself from the ground level and increase the member base of the party.
