PRESS NOTE

Aam Aadmi Party Karnataka released the first list of its 18 candidates for the forthcoming 2018 Assembly elections today in a function held at Woodlands Hotel. Releasing the list, AAP General Secretary and Party Observer for Karnataka, Shri Pankaj Gupta said that the reason why AAP is fighting in Karnataka is simple. Karnataka is the most corrupt state in India, Bengaluru is the worst administered city in the country and Karnataka is also no.2 in farmer suicides. People are in distress and are looking for a honest alternative. They have been denied even basic infrastructure facilities by successive governments. Our work in Delhi has given us confidence that we can do wonders in Karnataka too. He explained how the AAP Government’s work in  the field of Education and Health is winning accolades internationally. Our candidates have no allegation of corruption, criminality or communal-ism. These people have been working with the people of their constituency for over a year and are the right people to take the problems of the peole for discussion in Assembly after winning.

He then read out the names of candidates with a brief introduction, beginning with AAP Karnataka State Convener Prithvi Reddy from Sarvajna Nagar.

Speaking next, Rajya Sabha Member Shri Sanjay Singh said that fighting corruption is our main plank and explained how corruption is affecting the lives of people everywhere. He said that we will not discuss issues of religion/caste or other divisive topics but highlight our achievement in Delhi in the field of Education and Healthcare. He regretted that Budget was passed in Parliament without any discussion and no topic of people’s welfare gets discussed there and the proceeding are continually disrupted. Just like a labourer does not get paid if there is no work, parliamentarians too should not been paid for work that does not happen in Parliament. He said that he has written such a letter to the Chair and this reflects the pro-people attitude of AAP. The RSS which went around distributing pamphlets urging people to buy swadeshi items has changed and their BJP government gave 100% FDI permission. Even when Parliament was stalled both BJP and Congress came together to pass the Finance Bill, which converted all their black foreign money into white. But AAP will give people a true honest alternative he said.

Replying to a question whether AAP will align with BJP or Congress after elections, State Convenor Prithvi Reddy said that the AAP ideals do not match with either of the parties and this question should be asked to them if they will make adjustment with each other. He also said that it is the wish of AAP to contest all 224 seats but AAP may not contest such seat where there is no organization structure and the search of suitable candidate is not possible. He also said the recent development in Punjab will have no bearing on the state and we are fully aware of the reasons behind such decision by party leadership. He also state that we are fully behind Arvind Kejriwal in his fight . . .

      just the above statement , if true to its letter and word is more than enough for india to see a faint light at the end of the tunnel.
      if BJP WAS A RESPITE AND A WELCOME FOR CHANGE TO THE UPA, THEN MAY BE AAP IS TAKING ‘TRUTH IN POLITICS’ TO THE NEXT HIGHER LEVEL. AND ALL GOOD PEOPLE WHO WANT THE GOOD CHANGE TO HAPPEN NEED TO JOIN TO SUPPORT THEM. FOR THIS LAND HAS ALWAYS BELIEVED IN ITS STRENGTH OF NUMBERS AND THE MASS MOVEMENT WILL ALONE PUT DOWN AND QUELL ALL BAD, CORRUPT AND DIVISIVE FORCES THAT WORK AGAINST THE GOOD OF THE NATION AND ITS PEOPLE.

      I wish AAP luck & success. Its great that we have found an honest governance in Delhi & i will pray that the same continues all over the India under AAP governance.
      Fight against insanity is not easy now a days but a hunger to bring back humanity has given the courage to AAP to fight in the world of dirty politics being played by some political parties.
      God Bless You all!
      Thanks & all really appreciated from the bottom of my heart.

      AAP should contest election from Delhi, Punjab, Goa, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Odisha, Nagaland, Manipur, Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Sikkim, Puducherry, Tripura, Gujarat, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Haryana, Chandigarh, Chhatisgarh, UP & Bihar.
      But Elections should conduct with Ballot Paper and not with EVM. EVM can be Manipulated and give False Government to the Honest Indians.
      All Developed/Rich Countries are using Ballot Paper because they are Educated and they knows that EVM can be manipulated.
