On Sunday, the two AAP leaders said a mix of local and national issues would be helpful in achieving success in the next Lok Sabha poll.

The AAP currently holds four Lok Sabha seats in Punjab. The state has 13 Lok Sabha seats and the AAP would work to raise its tally as it is an opposition party in Punjab Assembly, another party leader said.

New Delhi: Delhi’s ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will focus on winning at least 25 seats out of the 100 it plans to contest in the next Lok Sabha election to better position itself in case of a non-BJP government formation, two party leaders said on Sunday.

In the emerging political scenario, winning 25 Lok Sabha seats will ensure the party is in a “comfortable” position to strike a bargain with other parties after the general election in 2019, a senior party leader said.

 

“The party is eyeing 100 potential seats. We will do whatever it takes to win at least 25 seats, particularly in Delhi, Haryana and Punjab, where we have a strong presence and effective organisational set up,” the leader said.

The party will contest Lok Sabha polls in the three states — Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh — where assembly elections are due later this year, besides focussing on Delhi, Haryana, and Punjab, another AAP leader said.

Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, and Gujarat are other states where it plans to contest selected Lok Sabha seats.
