AAP to launch signature campaign

New Delhi, June 18: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will start a campaign from Tuesday to reach out to at least 10 lakh households in Delhi and collect signatures on a petition requesting that the party’s demands be met. “From Tuesday, we will start a signature campaign in which we will reach out to 10 lakh families in the national capital and send those letters to the Prime Minister,” AAP MP Sanjay Singh told the media here. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, along with his deputy Manish Sisodia and Cabinet Ministers Satyendar Jain and Gopal Rai, had been camping at the Lt. Governor’s office since June 11. The leaders have been demanding a direction to the IAS officers working in the Delhi administration to end their “strike”. Kejriwal also wanted the Central government to approve his government’s proposal to deliver ration to the poor at their houses. On the “fear” of the IAS officers, Sanjay Singh said the officers don’t have to “fear their safety and Kejriwal will do everything within his powers to ensure the same”. (IANS)
