CHENNAI, 28 Dec: After its big Delhi debut the one-year-old Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is exploring ground in Tamil Nadu.
The AAP members have initiated membership drive in several districts of the state including Chennai, Erode, Vellore, Madurai, Coimbatore, Salem, Dindigul and Kanchipuram. AAP has managed to enroll about 30,000 to 35,000 people till now, party state treasurer Dr Anand Ganesh V told The Statesman.
The membership drive started last week and the party has set the target to get more than 5 lakh members in the state before 15 January, said Mr Ganesh. Youths, senior citizens and people associated with small trade industry have volunteered. Even the government officials have approached but being in service they cannot get their names enrolled, so they registered their family members’ names, he added. Further, the party members are approaching many colleges as because students have expressed interest in forming committees in their colleges. After the membership drive, workshops will be held to impart training to volunteers.
Elaborating the party’s strategy, Mr Ganesh said, the party is thinking of contesting few seats in the state and we will be fielding a candidate in Puducherry as well. AAP will not align with any party in the state, he added.
Meanwhile, political analysts in Tamil Nadu said that AAP needs to have local face.
“The party cannot take the Arvind Kejriwal face all over. Some local leaders are needed who can understand Tamil Nadu’s burning issues and politics,” said a Chennai based political observer. AAP also needs to align with other state parties, he added.
