The Aam Aadmi Party is making all attempts to contest Lok Sabha polls in Maharashtra and is working on strategies to forge an alliance with regional parties. AAP has been active in some states and even in the recently concluded assembly elections, AAP could rope in contestants who can challenge the regional parties. As the elections fever is catching up, AAP confirmed that they will contest Maharashtra.
"We will fight all seats in Mumbai and on a few seats in the rest of Maharashtra after forging an alliance with like-minded parties. We are working on a seat-sharing formula and it will be finalized by February 15," Mr. Sawant said.
He said the party's government in Delhi had focused on majorly on education and health sectors.
The party had earlier announced that it would contest Lok Sabha polls in Delhi, Punjab, Haryana, and Goa only.
He added that the Party isn’t desperate to fight the election, but will definitely fight in those seats where they can play a role in defeating BJP candidates as their main objective is to stop BJP from winning.
He informed that Independent MLA from Achalpur, Bacchu Kadu, would be entering into an alliance with the AAP.
Adding that Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal would campaign in Maharashtra, Sawant said that his own candidature would be decided by the AAP leadership.
