Chandigarh [India], August 23 (ANI): Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Monday announced that they will be contesting for all the seats in the upcoming Chandigarh Municipal Corporation polls in December.
Senior party leader and MLA from Delhi Jarnail Singh, along with senior Chandigarh leaders Prem Garg, Chander Mukhi Sharma and Pradeep Chhabra announced that AAP will be contesting the Chandigarh Municipal Corporation elections for the first time while addressing the media at the party headquarters.
The party is hopeful of emerging as a major party there.
Jarnail Singh claimed that during the tenure of the present BJP, corruption was rampant in every department in Chandigarh and AAP would work hard to eradicate it.
"AAP had been trying for a long time to set up its organisation in Chandigarh and now the organisation was almost complete which would be fielded," he added.
"Despite the BJP government at the Centre and the BJP-affiliated Lok Sabha member in Chandigarh; the Union government had neglected Chandigarh and made this beautiful city, a city full of filth," Singh alleged.
He further claimed that the long-standing demands of the people of Chandigarh were being ignored due to which the people now wanted a change of government.
"The Aam Aadmi Party is the only option available to the people of Chandigarh and this time they would bring honest people to power," he said. (ANI)
