Eyeing the Uttar Pradesh Assembly Election, the Aam Aadmi Party took out a Tiranga Sankalp Yatra in Noida on Wednesday even as heavy rain lashed Delhi and nearby areas.
Party leader Sanjay Singh said, “Through this, we want to tell [people] what real nationalism is. Our nationalism is that every poor child should have access to a better school to study. As in Delhi, the dream for better schools should be achieved in Uttar Pradesh too. Like mohalla clinics [in Delhi], every village should have better hospitals or clinics. There should be electricity in the homes of the poor – 300 units should be available free of cost.”
Sanjay Singh said, “FIRs have been registered against AAP workers during the previous Tiranga Yatra in Agra. Today also party workers were sent notices and asked against joining the yatra,” the Rajya Sabha MP alleged.
When told that the Gautam Buddh Nagar Police had invoked restrictions on public gatherings under CrPC section 144, Singh shot back asking if the rules applied only to opposition political parties’ events.
He said besides the yatra, which is next scheduled in Ayodhya on September 14, the AAP will be organising several other programmes in Uttar Pradesh to commemorate the 75th year of the country’s Independence.
At a meeting with party workers and leaders on Tuesday, Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh announced that the party will field candidates for all 403 seats in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly in the 2022 election.
Sanjay Singh, AAP’s Uttar Pradesh in-charge, appealed to party workers to get involved in the preparations for the elections at the booth level in order to fight the imminent polls with full force.
