Rohtak, Feb 23: The Aam Aadmi Party will launch its national campaign today from Haryana, with party chief Arvind Kejriwal addressing a rally in Rohtak.

"Kejriwal will launch the party's campaign from Rohtak. The rally will also be addressed by senior AAP leaders Yogendra Yadav and Manish Sisodia," chief AAP spokesman for Haryana, Rajeev Godara, said on Saturday.

Rohtak is being represented by Deepender Singh Hooda, son of Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda. Mr Kejriwal, who recently resigned as the Delhi Chief Minister, too hails from Haryana, the Congress-ruled state where AAP is looking to expand its base.

"The common people are desperate for a change. They are fed up with corruption, price rise, scams, dynastic politics ... They are pinning their hopes on AAP now," Mr Godara said.

The Congress government is using tactics before Arvind Kejriwal's rally

But the party alleged that the Congress-led government in the state was creating hurdles before the rally.

"The Congress government is using tactics before the rally. Hooda is giving orders to remove the posters put up by us and auto drivers who are campaigning for us are being fined.

"Haryana Urban Development Authority, on whose ground we are holding the rally, is also troubling us," charged Naveen Jaihind, AAP's party leader from Haryana.

Senior AAP leader Yogendra Yadav has already been announced as AAP candidate from Gurgaon in Haryana. The party is also expected to announce their second list which is likely to feature more names from the state.
