AAP to hold state convention on Bhagat Singh’s birth anniversary
Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) newly appointed Punjab convener Sucha Singh Chhotepur said his party would hold a state-level convention at Khatkar Kalan in Nawanshahr district on September 28, on the birth anniversary of Shaheed Bhagat Singh.
Chhotepur said the party’s four members of Parliament— Bhagwant Mann, Dr Dharamvir Gandhi, Harinder Singh Khalsa, Prof Sadhu Singh— state party leaders, district conveners and a national leader who is yet to be named would attend the convention.
The Aam Aadmi Party leader said he will visit every district of the state in the next 15 days to strengthen the party and make the leaders united at all levels. He said after taking feedback from them, he would talk with national party leaders to make future policies in the state.
Chhotepur further said the party has also planned to prepare volunteers and workers for the upcoming elections of municipal bodies due in November.
He said the party would also chalk out strategy to counter the Shiromani Akali Dal- Bharatiya Janata Party alliance government as it has failed to fulfil promises made to people during the 2012 assembly elections.
The Aam Aadmi Party leader said meetings are part of their strategy to create a strong base in the state. He claimed that their party would soon correct its mistakes and put up a strong fight against SAD- BJP and the Congress.
He also inducted Jagtar Singh Sanghera, retired deputy chairman of Punjab Mandi Board, into the party and hoped that AAP leadership will get more boost after this.
