AAP wave in south Gujarat as thousands join anti-corruption movement

Anandiben Patel's husband to join AAP
Surat, Dec 3: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) popularity wave is now spreading across the country after a massive victory in the Delhi assembly polls. Right now, AAP is sweeping off south Gujarat with its broom.

As many as 7,000 people that include large number of students, well-known doctors, chartered accountants, lawyers and educationists, joined AAP on a single day in Surat alone.

In Valsad, nearly 500 people filled up registration forms to join AAP. "We are happy at the amazing response of common people," said Kishore Desai, a local convenor of AAP.

"We have not set any target but we are planning to have least 5 lakh supporters for each Lok Sabha constituency in the state to make a definite impact in coming general elections," Desai added.

Mafatlal Patel, the estranged husband of Anandiben Patel, a senior minister, is set to join the Aam Aadmi Party shortly.

He met senior AAP functionaries and expressed his willingness to join the party along with some academicians and intellectuals "in order to fight Modi's corruption". He told TOI AAP was the right platform to fight against Modi.

In the next 150 days, AAP is planning to have at least 5,000 workers in each Lok Sabha constituency and each would reach out to at least 100 people and urge them to support their outfit. Every registration will be scrutinized, especially of those who join from the BJP and Congress.

Dr Amit Mavani, a 29-year-old general medical practitioner, who joined AAP said, "My friends and I have joined AAP to bring about a change in the political system. We will campaign for Right to Recall, Jan Lokpal aggressively."

Manoj Sorathiya, 30, a pharmacist who runs a textile business, said, "Present political parties are incapable of bringing about any change in the governance. We want to change that and we see a great hope in AAP."
