AAP national executive member and state convener Prithvi Reddy said Kejriwal will visit all the 28 Assembly constituencies in Bangalore. “We have asked for permission from City Police Commissioner as well as the Election Commission in this regard,” he said.
On Sunday, Kejriwal will campaign at Chikballapur and Gauribidanur and a public rally will be organised at Freedom Park in Bangalore.
Dinner with Kejriwal: On paid dinner with Kejriwal, Reddy said the party has `12-14 crore and is planning to contest 543 seats across the country.
The party plans to raise funds through dinner programmes. “We will accept only cheques and names of participants will be announced in our website,” he said.
List by Weekend: Reddy said the AAP received more than 8,000 applications from across the country, including 300 from the State with 75 from Bangalore, seeking tickets. The screening committee of AAP selected 13 candidates and the rest will be finalised by the end of this week, he said.
Will Complain Against Paid Dinners: BJP
Bangalore: BJP spokesperson Meenakshi Lekhi on Tuesday said the party will lodge a complaint with the Election Commission against the Aam Admi Party (AAP) for its plan to host paid dinners. AAP has billed a dinner with Arvind Kejriwal at `20,000, Lekhi said. Lekhi said the Election Commission has termed Narendra Modi’s ‘Chai Pe Charcha’ as a violation of the poll code of conduct even when it is organised by a third party. “If that is a violation, what about the paid dinner programme?” Lekhi said.
