Aam Aadmi Party to contest elections on all 68 seats in Himachal Pradesh

AAP workers also took out a roadshow in Shimla under the leadership of Satyendra Jain.

After a massive victory in the Punjab Assembly elections, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Saturday announced that it is going to contest all assembly seats in the neighbouring Himachal Pradesh state later this year. The party said it wants to be an alternative to the common man who is “fed of both the Congress and the BJP”.

Delhi Minister Satyendar Jain took out a march in Shimla on Saturday. The Aam Aadmi Party will also contest the municipal elections in Shimla next month.


Satyendar Jain said, ‘Aam Aadmi Party will also form the government in Himachal in the upcoming assembly elections and there will be a fight with BJP. He said that the health and education system in the state is in bad shape.

Satyendar Jain said, ‘After Punjab, it is now Himachal’s turn. We will contest all 68 seats in the upcoming assembly elections. He also said that AAP has no challenge from Congress and AAP know the mantra to defeat BJP.’

For the first time, the Aam Aadmi Party is going to form the government in any state outside Delhi. The party has won 92 out of 117 seats here. At the same time, while opening the account in Goa, the party has got two seats. Now Aam Aadmi Party is planning to expand to other states also. After Punjab and Goa, the party is now eyeing Himachal and Gujarat.
