Kolkatans are confused as many claiming to be AAP executives surfacing in the city
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is eager to spread its wings in other states of India. But in Kolkata, where there are many AAP units and everyone is claiming to be the original representative, the people and the Party leaders are confused now. All this started after AAP assuming the power in Delhi, and the state has started witnessing the party's proliferation.

AAP has organized a membership drive in the city to boost its membership, which is in at a nascent stage in the state. But now their are many units, which mushroomed in West Bengal and every one is claiming to be the original representative.

Some of the units are located at Dum Dum, Howrah and Malancha Road in Kharagpur. Supporters from each unit are walking in the street wearing party caps, they are also organizing rallies.

All these things are creating confusion in the minds of people as well as to the AAP Party leaders in Delhi. AAP party leaders in Delhi spoke about this saying, 'all this is sending a wrong message to the people'.

Atal Ashutosh, a student of IIT-Kharagpur who was actively involved during the AAP movement in Delhi and is close to Arvind Kejriwal, said, “It seems some people with vested interests are doing this. We want to make it clear that the party has its rules and a constitution, and by just wearing its cap you don’t become a member,” as reported by Financial Express.

Sangeeta Das, who claims to be the AAP spokesperson in Kolkata said that AAP was a movement based on principles, and people were free to join the movement and participate in the programmes organised by the state unit.

Claiming to be affiliated with the national party, Das said that they are confused as there are other people organising rallies, projecting themselves as party cadres, and participating in panel discussions on TV channels. She said that the central leadership has been informed about the situation in the state.
