Mysuru, July 31:- After the spectacular electoral win in Delhi, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) now is striving to make an impact at the national level and has started restructuring its state units. In this backdrop, AAP’s Committee on National Affairs has appointed Kapil Bhardwaj, the party’s trusted youth leader, election strategist, and chairman of the Delhi Consumers’ Cooperative (GNCT -Delhi) as Karnataka’s new in-charge.
Bhardwaj completed his education in the United States and worked in a few multinational companies and then set up his own business. In the run-up to the 2015 Assembly elections, he was campaign manager as well as in- charge of booth management. He was also a key member of the election think-tank for the 2017 Punjab Assembly elections and Delhi MCD elections. He held similar responsibilities for the Delhi Legislative Assembly election in February.
AAP Karnataka convener Prithvi Reddy welcomed this decision wholeheartedly and emphasised the need to replicate Delhi’s citizen-friendly model of governance in Karnataka. He said the state unit was committed to make this dream a reality with the guidance of Kapil Bhardwaj.
Immediately after the announcement of this appointment, Kapil Bhardwaj tweeted in Kannada and expressed his gratitude for being given this responsibility and said he was happy to take it up.
Speaking to the party workers, he highlighted the abject failure of the BJP state government in managing the Covid-19 crisis. He accused the party of being solely focused on profiteering during the crisis and ruining the reputation of the state.
He expressed confidence that AAP will win the BBMP elections this time, having focused all its efforts and committing to do what it takes to secure this win and serve the citizens of the state. (MR)
