“Ten promises will be fulfilled by us. We’ll clear Delhi’s streets, deal with the problem of the garbage mountains, and make parks prettier “Arvind Kejriwal, the mayor of Delhi, said this at a press conference.
In his campaign platform for the MCD elections, he also pledged to eradicate corruption, as well as to address the issue of vehicle parking. Kejriwal promised that MCD employees would be paid on time.
A meeting with senior officials was presided over by CM Kejriwal earlier on November 9 in the capital. Prior to that, AAP MLAs participated in an important meeting led by the deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia and the party’s state convenor and minister Gopal Rai, where they were given tasks at various levels to do in order to get ready for municipal body elections in all 250 MCD seats.
The AAP has also started the “Kude Par Jansamvad” campaign as part of its civic body election preparations, in which AAP representatives would listen to people’s waste issues and discuss their solutions through Jansamvad.
The party intends to host a public discussion in each of Delhi’s 13682 booths by November 20. A daily average of 500 public meetings will be held by the party, presided over by party MLAs.
All AAP office holders have been ordered to travel to all neighbourhoods in Delhi, speak with residents, and attempt to comprehend their problems.
Elections for 250 MCD seats in Delhi’s local bodies will take place on December 4 as announced by the Election Commission. The election nomination process has also begun.
The deadline for nominations is November 14, and the forms will be reviewed on November 16. November 19 is the final day for withdrawing nominations.
