A day after being appointed as the Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) Punjab president, Bhagwant Mann on Tuesday said he would reach out to party volunteers who were feeling low after the assembly poll results.
The Sangrur MP said he would try to put new life into the party structure once he starts meeting volunteers. “We would change the party structure. Now, we will have district and block presidents instead of zone and sector in-charges. Punjab will be divided into four parts Malwa-1, Malwa-2, Majha and Doaba with each part having an organisation head.”
“People in Punjab don’t understand zone and sector in-charge, they understand terminology of presidents, vice-presidents and general secretaries,” he told HT over phone, adding that convener and in-charge system works in Delhi only. “This way, we can give party positions to more volunteers who are actively working for the AAP,” Mann said.
The new state party chief will reach Punjab on Wednesday and will meet the family of Naib Subedar Paramjit Singh, who was killed by the Pakistani army along the Line of Control (LoC) in Poonch sector of Jammu and Kashmir, at Vein Poin village in Tarn Taran.
Speaking on voices of dissent raised by a section of NRIs, Mann said they worked hard, took leave from their jobs and travelled to Punjab to support AAP in the polls but the results dampened their spirits. But everything would be alright with the passage of time, he said, evading all tough queries.
