Aam Aadmi Party to contest Maharashtra Assembly elections

In a recent development in Maharashtra politics, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has decided to contest the upcoming Assembly elections. The elections are likely to be held in September-October. Meanwhile, AAP's national joint secretary Ruben Mascarenhasas said that they have decided to contest as the state was reeling under failure and systematic collapse.

He claimed that the Aam Aadmi Party was contesting in an attempt to save the "distressed" people of the state as the Devendra Fadnavis government has been a colossal failure in Maharashtra.

Once a progressive state, it is now plagued by drought, floods, farmer suicides, agrarian distress, unemployment, failing law and order and crime," he said.

He announced that the party's campaign committee for the Maharashtra polls will have Ranga Rachure as the convener, Kishore Mandhyan as co-convener and Dhananjay Shinde as secretary.

Earlier, the party had skipped the April-May Lok Sabha polls in the state.
