“The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will be an alternative to other political parties; though not in the coming election, but definitely in the next elections,” said Yogendra Yadav, Team-A member of the Party and its Co-Founder.
Yadav, who arrived in city to open the regional office of AAP, told media persons on the sidelines of the function that corrupt political parties are ruling Karnataka and have captured State.
“During our nationwide campaign against corruption, we got very good response from the people of Karnataka, which goes to prove that the people are frustrated with the rampant corruption and wish to see a change in the political system,” said Yadav and added he will not promise overnight changes since the party is in its infancy but would be an alternative to other political parties.
“Money and muscle power are being used to contest the elections which must be stopped,” he said and opined that in order to facilitate the Aam Aadmi to contest elections, a limited amount of State fund must be provided.
Regarding a query about the ‘Right to Recall,’ Yadav said that it would prove to be a good law in the Indian political system, but the voters need to be politically aware for the law to be effective.
Earlier, Yadav inaugurated the AAP office in Bogadi, a 450 sqft room near Nirmiti Kendra, behind SJCE in city at around 11.30 am. He was accompanied by Prithvi, the Party’s Co-ordinator for Bangalore.
There were no cracker-bursting, no floral garlands or bouquets to greet the leader. After the office inauguration, Yadav left to Pathrakartara Bhavan on Thyagaraja Road where he addressed a press conference.
