Civic polls in the city are scheduled for April, but dates are still to be announced.

Senior AAP leaders said door to door campaign has been the hallmark of the Arvind Kejriwal-led party. Several teams have been formed for each municipal seat.

“Each candidate is accompanying one of the many teams formed. Besides a profile of the candidates, each team is carrying a pamphlet with message from Kejriwal reminding voters about the performance of the municipal corporations, which have been ruled by BJP and Congress over the past two decades,” a senior AAP leader said.
