After landslide victory in the Delhi assembly elections, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will prepare eight pages on Punjab issues as grounds for the next sweep.

It will take these solutions to the state’s people. Terming the result in the national capital as its “golden moment”, the AAP member of Parliament from Patiala, Dr Dharamvira Gandhi, said here on Tuesday that the victory will “pave way for ending the Akali-BJP rule in Punjab in 2017 (when the next elections in the state are due)”.

“The politics of Punjab is going to change, as the AAP now will expand its wings across the constituencies in the state,” said Dr Gandhi. The eight pages on Punjab issues, he said, would expose the current state government and how it had failed on the drug control, agrarian, industrial, employment, water, education, and health fronts. “The party will hire experts to study each field and problem and find out political solutions,” said the Patiala MP.

After discussion with the party high command in Delhi, AAP will form committees across Punjab to take its document to people. “We will work on the grassroots model we had in Delhi. The people of Punjab have put faith in the AAP by electing its four members to Parliament, and we’ll repay them by fighting elections in the land of Shaheed Bhagat Singh on his ideology,” said Dr Gandhi.

About the Delhi results, he said the victory has given birth to a new political activism. “It is slap on Modi-led BJP’s religious, economic, and social agenda, a clear message that elections can’t be won by cheap caste-and-class politics. It will change the country’s mood, surely,” the MP claimed.
