Sue us if we turn corrupt after being elected: AAP

To ensure that its claims of clean politics and austerity are taken seriously by the voters, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is distributing pledge letters drafted on legal papers across the city.

The party is distributing pamphlets across the city along with a notary attested affidavit (a pledge letter), stating that, if elected, its candidates would not claim the entitlements of an MLA.

It claims that its victorious candidates will not use cars with beacons, not opt for personal security or use government accommodation. The rookie political outfit has made uprooting corruption its major poll plank.

These affidavits were filed by the AAP candidates in June when they were yet to get the party ticket.

“I will not opt for a vehicle with beacon. I will not apply for security personnel. I will stay in my own house and will also not take up accommodation given to MLAs,” reads one of the pledge letters by Vinod Kumar Binni, a candidate from Laxmi Nagar constituency. 

The party is distributing these affidavits across the city. “We want clean politics and this affidavit is a proof of that.

The affidavit is a proof of what we intend to do. It’s a legal document and if we don’t adhere to it, we can be dragged to court,” said Manish Sisodia, AAP spokesperson.

While the Delhi BJP and Congress are yet to announce their list of candidates, AAP has already announced 57 candidates who have taken up door-to-door campaigning. The candidate’s bio-data forms an integral part of the campaign literature being distributed by the party.
