Approx. 50,000 people gathered in front of Delhi Secretariat to register their grievances; AAP also focusing on Punjab, Gujrat, Odisha and Kerala

By on January 11, 2014

As expected, thousands of people gathered at the Delhi Secretariat to register their grievances as Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal hold his first Janata Darbar on Saturday. Arvind Kejriwal was forced to leave ’Janta Darbar’ mid-way to avoid possibilities of a stampede. It was estimated that around 50,000 people had gathered in front of the secretariat.

Arvind Kejriwal said that his presence could have led to a stampede like situation. We had not even imagined that so many people will turn out today. It was becoming difficult to manage the situation. We will have another ‘Janta Darbar’ in four or five days. It will be better organised and better managed.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has announced that it would contest on all 13 Lok Sabha seats in Punjab. The party got a huge response in its first public rally at Desh Bhagat Yadgaar Hall in Jalandhar, Punjab. Sanjay Singh said that 3Cs (crime, corruption and character) would be the key criteria before selecting the candidates of AAP. He further said that the party would not go in for an alliance with any party and that drugs, high power tariff, corruption, inflation and farmer suicides will be the issues in Punjab.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has also decided to field candidates from all the 26 Lok Sabha seats in the Gujrat state and likely to field candidates from all the 21 seats in Odisha. The party is expecting to enroll more than three lakh members in the Odisha state during its membership drive.

The AAP is also planing to field candidates in three constituencies of Kerala – Thiruvananthapuram, Ernakulam, and Thrissur – in the Lok Sabha Elections. Writer and social activist Sarah Joseph announced her decision to join the Aam Aadmi Party in Kerala. She is perhaps the first known face to join the AAP from Kerala.
