After its recent victory in the Delhi MCD elections, the Aam Aadmi Party is now gearing up for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. The party has called a meeting of its National Council on Sunday, December 18, to discuss the matter.
The meeting will be attended by representatives from across the country and state leaders on strategy for the 2024 general elections. In the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the party had won only one seat. The winning candidate was Bhagwant Mann from Sangrur, Punjab.
In the recently concluded assembly elections in Gujarat and Himachal, AAP managed to hit the streets in the former, while it could not open an account in the hill state. The party won 5 seats in Gujarat.
It also took control of the MCD from the BJP, which ruled the civic body for 15 years. AAP won 134 wards while BJP got 104.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal termed the MCD’s victory as a “big victory” for his party.
Addressing people at the party office in Delhi after the election victory, Kejriwal congratulated the people of Delhi and thanked them for bringing change. “I congratulate the people of Delhi for this victory and thank them for bringing change,” Kejriwal said. The Aam Aadmi Party crossed the halfway mark in the Delhi Municipal Corporation elections on Wednesday, securing a majority, thus uprooting the 15-year rule of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the city’s civic body.
Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia tweeted and thanked the people of Delhi. He said, ‘Heartfelt gratitude to the people of Delhi for trusting the Aam Aadmi Party in Delhi MCD. By defeating the world’s biggest and most negative party, the people of Delhi have given victory to a staunch honest and hardworking Arvind Kejriwal. For us it is not just a victory, it is a big responsibility.”
Most of the candidates belonging to political families emerged victorious in the Delhi civic elections, while the richest contender faced a humiliating defeat.
Three former mayors of Delhi won their wards while one former mayor of North Delhi lost the election in Civil Lines.
