Yogendra Yadav: AAP will fight for additional quota for lower castes

'AAP has more clarity on reservation'
New Delhi, Jan 7: Senior Aam Aadmi Party leader Yogendra Yadav has said that the party has 'more clarity' now specially on issues relating to caste and reservation.

"The party will fight for additional quota for the lower castes, women and the economically backward," Yadav said.

The AAP was heavily criticised for being silent on issues relating to caste and reservation and focussing more on populism. Saying that the AAP is in favour of a quota for the SC/STs and OBCs, Yadav said that the party will work more for these issues. "We came from different backgrounds. We didn't have clarity about it until recently," he said.

"Discrimination on the basis of caste is extreme in India. Equally worse is discrimination based on gender and class," Yadav said.

AAP is currently gearing up for the 2014 Lok Sabha elections and is trying its best to reach out to a wide section of the people.

The AAP announced that it would contest from 300 Lok Sabha seats in the upcoming general elections.
