Aam Aadmi Party likely to contest six-seven seats in Bengal
The party is currently running membership drives in the districts as well as parts of Kolkata, which, it claims, has generated a “positive and exciting” response.
But, Rakesh Jha, AAP leader in Bengal, said, “We will contest six to seven Lok Sabha seats in West Bengal, out of which three are Kolkata North, Kolkata South and Jadavpur. Other seats are yet to be decided.”
The Aam Aadmi Party would also try to capitalise on the “resentment” against the Trinamool Congress which is in power since May, 2011, he said.
AAP leaders in Bengal claimed that the membership of the party at present stood around 1.5 lakhs, some of whom, they said, would be drafted as active volunteers.
