The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has decided to give more representation to women in the Municipal Corporation of Gurugram (MCG) elections.
The party leaders said this on Wednesday while announcing the newly formed district executive committee comprising of 32 members, including five women.
The party has selected Surya Dev as district president, and Manjit Jaildar as president of Gurgaon parliamentary assembly area. Hemchandar Yadav, Mukesh Dagar, Ashok Verma are the vice presidents while Surender Sherpur and Sandeep Kumar are general secretaries. Ranbir Singh Rathee is the state chief spokesperson.
Five positions are vacant as the party is looking for suitable candidates, Pandit Om Narayan, state executive committee spokesperson, said.
The leaders said the party gave representation to about 33% women in the civic elections in Delhi and the same would be done in Gurgaon when the civic body polls are held.
“We will try to give more representation to women. The party will contest MCG polls on the party symbol in all 35 wards,” Narayan said.
He hoped that the party would emerge victorious as candidates with clean background and experience in social work will be fielded.
Narayan said selection of members for the executive committee was carried out on several parameters, including a clean background with no criminal links/cases. “We have ensured that no person with serious criminal cases is included in the committee. The members selected are connected with the public and have experience in working for public welfare,” he said.
