A group of young Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) volunteers identified as AAP Youth Mansa (AYM) have taken social media route to criticise party policies.

Noticeable is the fact that Mansa is considered one of the least developed regions in the state despite proper internet connectivity.

The brain behind this team is Bhupinder Singh (23), who owns a business of agricultural machines in Mansa.

He joined AAP before the Lok Sabha elections.

“We organised a camp near the civil hospital to check the rampant corruption. But after sometime we realised that we should get on social media to widen our reach,” said Bhupinder.

REBEL CANDIDATES AND TICKET DISTRIBUTION

The group got its formal recognition after they managed to get an interview with expelled AAP leader Jassi Jasraj and uploaded it on their Facebook page. “We got huge response on the social media in connection to the interview,” said Bhupinder.

“We met with HS Phoolka, Dharamvira Gandhi and Bhagwant Mann after the interview with Jassi,” he said.

“We received negative feedback about Gurpreet Bhatti and with his consent we held a live interview where volunteers across the globe posed their questions,” he added.

Bhupinder claims that their video posts on social media have inspired AAP workers in Goa.

“We are following Arvind Kejriwal who had once said that put all your might to ensure the defeat of even an AAP candidate if he is corrupt,” said Bhupinder while referring to AAP women wing chief Baljinder Kaur who has been given ticket from Talwandi Sabo.

When asked about this group AAP leader Baljinder Kaur denied of having ever interacted with the members of this group and said that anyone who criticises the party has no faith in the leadership.
