AAP launches broom march to expose 'corrupt' Modi govt

January 26, 2014 20:36 IST

The Gujarat unit of the Aam Aadmi Party launched a "broom march" as part of its campaign for the Lok Sabha elections and to expose corruption of the state government.

"The march began from Indulal Yagnik's statue in Lal Darwaja area of the city and it will cover all Lok Sabha constituencies of the state," AAP media coordinator Harshil Nayak said.

Television journalist-turned-politician Ashutosh was in city to launch the march.

"The broom march will cover all constituencies going to polls in the Lok Sabha elections. It will end on January 30 at Mahatma Mandir in Gandhinagar," Nayak said.

"Gandhiji was shot on that very day (January 30), but today, the AAP will expose how Gandhiji is killed in Gujarat every day," he said.

Meanwhile, Ashutosh also questioned the Gujarat model of development on Sunday.

"Unless corruption is weeded out from Gujarat, the real progress of the state will not be known. The Gujarat model of development is just propaganda by Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi," Ashutosh said.

"This march is aimed at leveraging the membership of the AAP. We are trying to connect to as many people as possible," AAP state convener Sukhdev Patel said.

The AAP has attracted 2.5 lakh people in Gujarat so far as members and it has decided to contest all 26 Lok Sabha seats in the state.
