With 10 days to go for the Lok Sabha polls, the Aam Aadmi Party-Congress alliance and its joint campaign for Delhi will get a boost on the ground Wednesday as AAP national convener Arvind Kejriwal is set to hold roadshows for Congress candidates Udit Raj and Jai Prakash Agarwal.

Congress and AAP are in a 3:4 seat-sharing agreement in Delhi.

Since his release on interim bail last Friday, Kejriwal has held four roadshows in the four seats where AAP candidates are contesting, brainstormed campaign strategy with senior leaders, and held meetings with MLAs and MCD councillors. In all these meetings, the CM has asked leaders and workers to hold joint campaigns with Congress candidates.

Congress coordination committee in-charge, Subhash Chopra, Kejriwal will hold two roadshows — in Jahangirpuri (Northwest Delhi) and Model Town (Chandni Chowk). “We discussed this in the coordination committee yesterday. He (Kejriwal) has agreed… The CM will start the roadshow at 6 pm from Jahangirpuri and then go to Model Town… In between, one area of Northeast Delhi will also be covered… But the CM will hold a separate roadshow for (NE Delhi candidate) Kanhaiya Kumar in the coming days,” said Chopra.

AAP coordination committee in-charge Durgesh Pathak also confirmed the plan.

Festive offer

Chopra added, “Both parties are working together on the ground and have held joint door-to-door meetings… Now, the CM is going to hold a roadshow for our candidate… Senior Congress senior leaders Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi, and party president Mallikarjun Kharge will also hold roadshows and meetings soon…”

Meanwhile, the next step is to ensure the joint campaigning translates to vote consolidation, said leaders of both parties.

In seats like New Delhi and Chandni Chowk, if AAP and Congress succeed in consolidating votes, there may be a close contest between the BJP and the INDIA bloc, going by the 2019 poll vote share. In 2019, while BJP got 53% of the vote share in Chandni Chowk, that of AAP and Congress combined was 45%. Similarly, in New Delhi, while the BJP got 55%, AAP-Congress got 43%.

Asked how the party has cleared up confusion among voters in constituencies where the Congress is not contesting, like in South Delhi, Chopra said messages are being sent to people via WhatsApp asking them to push the ‘broom’ button. “Workers are also distributing a ‘nyay patra’, which says ‘Congress button yahan nahi hoga… vote for AAP…’, and sample voting papers with a picture of the INDIA bloc candidate.”

AAP’s Pathak said: “Through door-to-door meetings and continuous campaigning on social media, the confusion has been cleared — AAP voters know who to vote for…”
