Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) now taking its foot over to Rajasthan after Delhi. AAP is ready for contesting Lok Sabha elections in Rajasthan. Finally, the state unit of AAP has announced to contest elections on all 25 seats in the state. Upbeat over the government formation in the national capital, the state unit made the announcement in a press conference held at party office on Tuesday.

Ashok Jain, convener of AAP in Rajasthan said that party state unit has been receiving overwhelming response from the people. “They have been asking us to introduce our party formally in the state and to contest Lok Sabha elections. Over 2,100 people from lawyers to engineers, professors to journalists, chartered accountants to businessmen and people from hinterlands to NRIs have registered for our internship programe,” said Jain.

To the question how these interns will help AAP, Jain replied, “These interns will help us in assisting in their area of specialization. For example all lawyers will be clubbed together in our legal cell, IT professionals will look after our website and social networking etc.”

In a run-up to Lok Sabha polls, AAP has appointed office bearers in most of the districts and has started its membership drive as well as screening candidates for the 2014 polls.

Mulkraj Anand, Jaipur coordinator for AAP who is a resident of Jaipur, left his job of associate vice-president in a real estate firm in Jaipur to support AAP. He said, “Our party is studying all Lok Sabha seats to ensure that we come up with right issues and have a roadmap ready for redressal of listed issues.”

The AAP office bearers said that the verdict in Delhi has made it clear that people are fed up with Congress and BJP. They have accepted AAP as ther right alternative to national parties. They told media that AAP president Arvind Kejriwal is likely to visit Jaipur in January.

AAP state secretary Rakesh Pariekh is confident of winning seats in Rajasthan and said, “Bi-polar politics in the desert state has created a vacuum for an alternate to BJP and Congress. Nearly 8 lakh people have voted for NOTA which further reinstates our claim.”

The Anna movement had received an overwhelming response in the Pink City with people from all walks of life supporting it by joining the rallies and sit-ins at Statue Circle. Most of the office bearers are those who joined the movement.
