Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has become like a national convener in Indian politics now.
Mumbai: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) said on Friday that the JDU and its allies should decide whether to support Nitish Kumar as their candidate for prime minister in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. This was done in an effort to maintain an equal distance between the BJP-led NDA and the UPA led by the Congress.
In response to a query about some non-BJP parties portraying Bihar Chief Minister Kumar as the PM candidate, Sanjay Singh, the party’s national spokesperson, said that the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is not a member of any alliance and is focused on its own statewide expansion.
“This is their internal matter,” Mr. Singh told reporters when asked to clarify the AAP’s stand on the senior JDU leader being projected as a PM candidate for the 2024 Lok Sabha election.
When asked if Nitish Kumar is the AAP’s preference for prime minister, the Rajya Sabha MP responded, “It is something that Nitish Kumar’s party and its allies have to decide.” “Neither we are part of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA), nor that of the United Progressive Alliance (UPA). We are not part of any alliance.
The AAP has made a image of a lone challenger in the politics as it has been riding high with its remarkable victory in Punjab, the Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has become like a national convener in the Indian politics now.
Sanjay Singh further added that the AAP has focused itself for a nationwide expansion and the party is working to achieve the same objective. He also said that the party is also working upon bringing solutions to the fundamental problems that the country is facing.
The AAP went alone to contest assembly polls in five states including Punjab where the party formed its government earlier this year, Mr Singh said. “We are going alone to contest upcoming elections in the BJP-ruled Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh as well,” he added.
