The Economic Times - - Pure Politics -

Af­ter launch­ing a cam­paign tar­get­ing BJP chief Amit Shah in Gu­jarat, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is plan­ning a fundrais­ing drive on March 26, for the Assem­bly elec­tions to be held in De­cem­ber this year. Ac­cord­ing to se­nior party lead­ers, while party leader Arvind Ke­jri­wal will ad­dress a pub­lic rally in Ahmed­abad on March 26 and make a for­mal call to party sup­port­ers to do­nate gen­er­ously, the party is also look­ing at woo­ing Gu­jarat NRIs for mon­e­tary sup­port. The party, sources said, was look­ing at start­ing the ticket dis­tri­bu­tion process in Au­gust this year. “The sup­port from NRIs dur­ing the elec­tions in Pun­jab was very en­cour­ag­ing, which is why we are look­ing at tap­ping Gu­jarati NRIs too,” said a se­nior party leader. —
