Live screening of election results will be undertaken in the city by the party followed by dhol, bhangra and music performances.
Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is confident of putting up an impressive performance in Punjab and Goa and the outfit is already gearing up for massive celebrations in the metropolis. AAP has contested its first assembly polls in these states and the outcome will further enable the party to expand its footprint beyond Delhi where it is currently in power. Ahead of 2014 Lok Sabha polls AAP was looking as a serious contender to grab political space in various regions of the country. The downfall of Congress too has helped AAP’s cause to strengthen its presence. Today the Arvind Kejriwal led outfit is known as a party for providing clean and transparent governance.
Ashutosh Sengar joint in-charge of AAP Maharashtra unit said, “Our party has organised MMR Celebration Program on 11th March at GTB Nagar when the assembly poll results of the five states will be declared. Live screening of results will be held at the venue followed by dhol, bhangra and music performances.”
Satish Jain AAP’s coordinator for Mumbai Metropolitan Region said, “Party workers will distribute sweets. Later they will carry out padyatra at Sion and celebrations will continue in Chakala office after 2 pm. Grand Padyatra will be undertaken by the party workers from Chakala office to Juhu beach from 4 pm to 7pm.”
Punjab which witnessed a triangular contest in the assembly polls, could witness a tough contest between AAP and Congress while anti-incumbency factor will work against ruling Shiromani Akali Dal-Bharatiya Janata Party and they may face a rout. According to exit polls, the SAD-BJP combine might struggle to reach double- digits in the 117 member House. The alliance has been ruling the state for 10 years.
A HuffPost-CVoter pre-poll survey has predicted that AAP is likely to win Punjab polls. It has predicted that AAP would get mandate and will become the single largest party in the state. The poll projects 63 seats for AAP in the house of 117.
The India Today-Axis exit poll predicted 62-71 seats for the Congress in 117-member Punjab Assembly, a comfortable majority, and 42-51 to Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP. The Shiromani Akali Dal-BJP combine was projected to be decimated in the state which it has ruled for a decade. All polls showed the alliance getting reduced to a single digit tally.
However, India TV-C Voter projected 59-67 seats for debutante AAP and 41-49 for the Congress. India News-MRC and News 24-Chanakya forecast a dead heat by giving 55 and 54 seats each to both parties.
The NDTV poll of polls forecast 55 seats for the Congress in Punjab, closely followed by the AAP with 54 seats. The incumbent Akali Dal-BJP alliance was predicted staring at a virtual decimation with only 7 seats in the 117-member assembly.
