The astonishing debut of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in New Delhi is talk of the town today. The result of party’s creative election campaign and its direct involvement with citizens is outstanding. AAP has proved age old norm of politics that it takes decades to build up a political party and big names are needed to create party identity don’t work anymore. The generation Y of India is wise enough to take bold steps to change the current political scenario in the nation. IBN-Lokmat explores the successful journey of AAP during exclusive interaction with AAP member Yogendra Yadav in â€˜Gupit Aithihasik Vijayache’.
Patients of Delhiites were tested to the limit with ongoing corruption, rising crimes against women, rigid dynastic politics, innumerous scams coming out every day and upset with elite class VIP politicians who refuse to listen to common man. Fed up with the earlier political set up, people of Delhi have decided to opt for their own transformation.
AAP addressed most of the above mentioned issues during their campaign. AAP has grassroots connect. They realized that huge section of the city’s masses do not have usual availability of basic civil facilities such as water, electricity and healthcare. The AAP has gauged this population wisely. They promised them ample water, interrupted power supply and sufficient healthcare services. Plus, if we look at top line up of AAP leaders like Arvind Kejriwal, Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan, we realize that all of them have humble middle class background and they are highly qualified. This appealed to the public.
