The Aam Aadmi Party is going all out to make voters believe that they are different from other candidates. After promising corruption-free governance, they have now reassured citizens of Bangalore that they won’t snatch microphones or use pepper sprays in the House when their point is not being heard.
And all this not just by talking, but by filing an affidavit. AAP candidates on Thursday signed affidavits and took oaths to become better public servants and true representatives of the people. “I will be committed to the cause of Swaraj. Local governance decisions will be in the hands of the public,” states the affidavit.
Chikballapur candidate K Arkesh said: “These affidavits can be used by the public to hold us accountable. They can come to us and demand an explanation.”
The candidates have promised they would not behave like netas and will not use a beacon car or have VIP security provided to elected members.
These affidavits are going to be distributed to the public. AAP has also announced that its volunteers will patrol the streets with cameras before the elections to monitor campaigning by candidates in the city. The Karnataka Rajya Raitha Sangha asked people to vote for AAP and urged people not to vote for Veerappa Moily, who is contesting from Chikballapur.
