RAIPUR: The Chhattisgarh unit of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is set to launch aggressive electioneering across the state with over 10000 'Nukkad Sabha' (Street corner rally) to be organised in support of their party candidates during the month of August.

The AAP will begin its intensive poll campaign, to continue for 24 days, from August 1 in all 90 assembly seats where the party will showcase the "work and accomplishments" of the Arvind Kejriwal-led Delhi government. The party has fielded several new and politically inexperienced faces for the Chhattisgarh Assembly elections due later this year.

During the month of August, the AAP will focus on the door-to-door campaign, to reach out to every household to introduce their candidates and share the party ideology. The party will use projectors and display recorded speeches of Arvind Kejriwal besides the street plays. "These public meetings will be in the shape of the intensified campaign that will seek accountability and performance records of the 15 years rule of the BJP chief minister as - Mukhyamantri jawab do - 15 saal ka hisaab do", said Delhi labour minister Gopal Rai, who is the AAP state-incharge for Chhattisgarh.

During the campaign the AAP workers will distribute the contents narrating comparative evaluation of performance and achievements of three-year-old Kejriwal government with the 15-year-old Raman Singh government. The party will also compiled the list of issues and problems faced in the villages and cities of respective constituencies. "The nukkad sabha and nukkad natak (street play) will be organised at selective prominent places. On August 24, the AAP will carry out extensive march in each constituency to gherao the office of the sub-divisional magistrate. We will submit the list of grievances as memorandum of demands on the name of the chief minister seeking their immediate redressal", the AAP chief spokesperson Uchit Sharma told the Express.

The party has withheld its decision to declare the face of the chief minister in Chhattisgarh. It will be done soon following the announcement of the party candidates in all 90 seats, Rai stated. The AAP has also planned to target the youths and professionals in Chhattisgarh and will organise 'Vision Yuva Chhattisgarh' on August 31. "AAP will seek the favour of the electorates to deliver good governance in Chhattisgarh the way we are doing in Delhi", Rai averred.
