The Aam Aadmi Party will focus on making Delhi clean and a world-class city if it comes to power in the municipal polls due next year, party leader Durgesh Pathak said. Having won the municipal corporation bypolls, the Arvind Kejriwal-led party is now focusing on consolidating its position in the civic bodies.
Pathak, who is the party's in-charge of municipal corporations, said there is a feeling on the ground that the Arvind Kejriwal government must be given an opportunity in municipal corporations. The municipal corporation polls of Delhi are due in 2022. On the party's vision for the municipal corporation, Pathak said the first thing they will do is to clean Delhi if they win the polls.
"The main work of the municipal corporation is to keep Delhi clean but the national capital is so dirty under the BJP. So the first thing we will do is to clean Delhi. Local bodies play a very important role in implementing policies so if the AAP government comes we will succeed in making Delhi a world-class city," he said. He said the party will reduce corruption in municipal corporations. Talking about the bypoll results, Pathak said the AAP won the bypolls in the strongholds of the BJP and in other seats too, the AAP's margin has increased.
"So the feeling we are getting on the ground is that Arvind Kejriwal must be given an opportunity in municipal corporations too," Pathak told.
