Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) had earlier announced that it will contest the Maharashtra assembly elections. The internal sources informed that AAP is preparing to field 50 to 55 candidates for the upcoming polls while the process to interview candidates is almost complete. 

On Monday, Vanchit Bahujan Aghadi (VBA) chief Prakash Ambedkar along with other party leaders held meeting AAP leaders at Ambedkar Bhavan in Dadar to discuss the possibilities of an alliance in the upcoming Maharashtra assembly elections. 

However, there has been no official announcement whether AAP will contest the assembly elections while forming an alliance or not. While targeting Shiv Sena over Aarey tree cutting issueAAP leader Preeti Menon accused Yuva Sena chief Aditya Thackeray of adopting double standards.

Menon stated that Aditya Thackeray on one side opposes the tree felling in Aarey but the Maharashtra Environment Minister, who is from Shiv Sena, doesn’t say a word regarding the same. 

Moreover, Shiv Sena rules in Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) which has allowed the felling of more than 2,700 trees in Aarey colony, Menon added.
