National executive member of Aam Aadmi Party Yogendra Yadav on Wednesday claimed that there was a wave similar to Delhi in AAP's favour in Haryana.


Addressing a workers' meet at Jat Dharamsala here, he said that political conditions in Haryana make it a perfect battleground for AAP. He said that corruption was so rampant in the state that half of the sitting MLAs were acting as 'dalals' (commission agents) for getting government jobs, while the rest were part of the land mafia.

He alleged that it was a common knowledge that jobs were being sold and merit was not being followed in selections for all government posts, but the opposition parties were not uttering a word as their own record was not clean.

Yadav said that AAP in Delhi had proved that elections can be fought and won without the power of money and it was destined to put up a similar show in parliamentary and assembly elections in Haryana. He said that politicians of traditional parties would get a shock of their lives from the results in Haryana in the next elections.

Earlier, a few other AAP leaders and president of Bhartiya Kisan Union, Gurnam Singh Charuni, also addressed the workers.

One of the AAP workers, Ashwani Malhotra, created a scene by insisting that he should be allowed to speak from the dais. Later, party's coordinator, Naveen Jaihind, said that AAP was a disciplined party and people who indulged in hooliganism could look for options.
