Is Bangalore AAP's next big city?
Bangalore, Dec 10: After registering a brilliant victory in Delhi assembly elections, Aam Aadmi Party is looking forward to expand their base across various cities in India. The Mumbai wing of the party is already active and the party representatives have contacted IAS officer Ashok Khemka to lead AAP in Haryana. +

Bangalore, which has always been a strong supporter of Anna Hazare and his anti-graft movements, has every chance to be the next big city of AAP. The party in Bangalore has active Twitter and Facebook accounts. 

The people who had joined hands in support of the anti-graft movement in 2011, have come together in support of AAP too.

A Times of India report say that, at present, AAP has units in 18 districts in Karnataka, and is active in five cities - Bangalore, Mysore, Mangalore, Udupi and Hubli-Dharwad. In Bangalore alone, it has 12,000 registered members. 

Although, the party doesn't have a srong leadership in Bangalore, the supporters keep the wing active. They maintain good connections with parties like Lok Satta, a party founded by Jayaprakash Narayan, based in Hyderabad. The Bangalore wing celebrated AAP's big win in Delhi. 

They regularly hold health camps, events like 'Walk For Democracy' and join Kannada Diwas celebrations in the state.

The AAP's Karnataka members even campaigned for the party in United Kingdom. 

Like what the party chief Arvind Kejriwal said, AAP is a movement or rather, a fast-growing movement. Experts observe that gradually AAP might grow big enough to threaten BJP and Congress in Karnataka.
