Beginning Wednesday, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will organise magic shows, nukkad nataks, music and dance events in the second phase of its campaign for the upcoming civic body elections, AAP’s Delhi unit chief Gopal Rai said on Tuesday.
“We have decided to hold 1,000 nukkad sabhas across the city from tomorrow till December 2. On Wednesday, we’ll organise 45 nukkad sabhas,” said Mr. Rai, adding that ‘Kejriwal Ki Sarkar, Kejriwal Ka Paarshad’ will be the party’s campaign theme. The high-stakes elections to the 250 municipal wards are set to be held on December 4, where AAP is trying to deny the BJP its fourth consecutive term in the MCD (Municipal Corporation of Delhi).
“Through nukkad nataks, dance and magic shows we will convey the message that if you want work to be done in the MCD, you must vote for Kejriwal’s councillors,” Mr. Rai added. Sharing some details, the senior AAP leader said issues such as the city’s poor garbage management will be highlighted in the nukkad nataks, after which an AAP leader will address the gathering with details about the party’s promises.
The party leaders will raise “awareness” about “rampant corruption” by the BJP in the MCD over the last 15 years.
