Chandigarh The newly elected state legislators of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will meet on March 24 to chalk out their strategy for the first session of the 15th Punjab Vidhan Sabha that begins the same day.

Leader of opposition HS Phoolka said the MLAs have been asked to list out pressing issues that the party will highlight in the assembly. “We are keenly watching what the new government is doing and will like to bring to its notice some issues that need immediate attention.

These will be primarily related to health and education,” said Phoolka, who has been elected from Dakha.

As many as 19 of the 20 AAP MLAs will be attending an assembly session for the first time and are depending on the “training booklet” sent to them from the Vidhan Sabha secretariat. Only the party chief whip, Sukhpal Singh Khaira, was earlier elected to the assembly on the Congress ticket in 2007.

“Most of what we need to know is written in it (booklet). But I think we would do much better if we were to be trained inside the complex,” said Kultar Singh, party MLA from Kotkapura. The Vidhan Sabha secretariat will be holding a training session for all the newly elected MLAs after the first session is over.
