AAP in Gurgaon: membership drive is picking up steam
There is nothing Aam about the Aam Aadmi Party. The fact that they started a revolution, created a huge awareness amongst its citizens and finally formed a political party, seems like a story straight out of a Bollywood film. The only difference this time is that this is not a well written script and Arwind Kejriwal is actually working for a corrupt free country. After Delhi, people of Gurgaon are supporting AAP, as was evident after the first day of the membership drive in Gurgaon.

As per the Secretary of AAP, Harayana, Balbir Singh, “Main Bhi Aam Aadmi campaign is a way to know how AAP is position everywhere in the country. The most important thing we are concentrating on is to level the difference between 'Aam Aadmi' and 'Khash Aadmi' and to make India corrupt free. This campaign is just another way of approaching the said goals.”

When asked as to how the people are reacting to the membership drive, Singh further added, “ the response in Gurgaon is very positive. We have filled around 250 membership slips, which is a good number given the fact that people are yet to be aware of this drive. Moreover we are hopeful that as the days progress, many other interested candidates would come forward.”

He also said that they are hoping around 50,000 slips would be filled by interested people in and around Gurgaon. They have an aim to enroll 1 crore member through the drive till January 26. The fact that they waived away the 10 Rupees application fee shows that they want each and everyone to enroll.
