Says, Will contest elections in J&K of its own
NEW DELHI: Lashing out at Awami Itihaad Party (AIP) for misleading people over Kashmir policy of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), New Delhi Education Minister and AAP senior leader Manish Sisodia Monday said that his party had not taken any stand on Kashmir yet and they would soon disclose the official stand taken by party on Kashmir-issue.
Talking to CNS reporter on the sidelines of Arvind Kejriwals protest outside Rail Bhawan against Delhi Police, Sisodia said that AAP would contest elections in Jammu and Kashmir single handedly and not rely on any allies.
We have a strong base all over India and we dont need the support of any ally. There is no question of seeking the support of AIP or any other party and these reports are baseless that some AIP leaders approached us, he said.
He said that AAP would contest elections in Jammu and Kashmir too and hopefully garner the support of common people.
Sisodia said the party will convene a meeting regarding the matter in a few days.
Responding to a query, Sisodia said that AAP has not disclosed its Kashmir policy yet. We will soon disclose our stand on Kashmir and those who criticize us and mislead people over the issue will also come to know about our stand on the issue, he said.
AIP chairman Er Rashid in a statement had claimed that AAP like other parties has taken a tough stand on Kashmir.
