Congress leader Anil Gautam and several other office-bearers joined the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Friday.
AAP Delhi Unit’s Mahila Shakti Incharge Sarita Singh who inducted the Congress leader into the party fold, said: “The Aam Aadmi Party’s message of progress and prosperity is echoing not just in the entire state of Delhi, but throughout the country. People’s trust in CM Arvind Kejriwal and his model of development is ever increasing. People in Delhi and other states where AAP is fielding its candidates for the elections like Punjab, Goa, and Uttarakhand – especially eminent leaders of various communities are joining the Aam Aadmi Party.”
“Today is hence a very momentous day for us as we welcome several prominent members of the society into the AAP family,” she added.
Gautam, an advocate, has been a corporator from Congress from 2012 to 2017. Apart from being in politics, he is also an advocate. He was declared the best municipal councillor of his time and has held many important posts.
After joining the party, Gautam said, “I needed to take a new path. The work of the Aam Aadmi Party has an impact on the entire country. Arvind Kejriwal’s works have always had an impact on me. That’s why I decided to join the party.”
Meanwhile, the new joinees in the AAP include Babarpur district Congress Vice President Naveen Sharma, Block General Secretary Dinesh Vashisht, Block Secretary Vivek Sharma, DPCC member Satya Narayan Sharma, DPCC secretary Shyam Sundar Bansal, and others.
