With growing demand from party candidates to campaign in their constituencies, AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal will address over 85 rallies over the next two months.

Party sources said the former Delhi chief minister will address 25 rallies in December and 60 rallies in January, with a target of at least one rally in each constituency and two in some constituencies.

“The target is to have at least one jan sabha every constituency. There are constituencies which require him to campaign more than once. As of today, he (Kejriwal) is holding two rallies every day in different constituencies.

“It will intensify as the campaigning heats up. We haven’t planned anything for February as yet but once we come to know about election dates, we will do that accordingly,” the source added.

Kejriwal will also address road rallies just near the polls.

Sources added that the party is also receiving request from party candidates for Bhagwant Mann, party MP from Sangrur in Punjab, to campaign in their constituencies.

The comedian-turned politician is one of the star campaigners for AAP.

There are others who will join the campaign once election dates are announced.

These include music composer Vishal Dadlani, actress Gul Panag, party leader and noted poet Kumar Vishwas.

“The advantage of Bhagwant Mann is that he is bi-lingual and is a good orator. He can speak in Punjabi, Urdu and Hindi and can easily connect with the masses.

“So he can campaign in constituencies which are dominated by Poorvanchalis, Punjabi and Sikhs, which itself constitutes a large population spread across all the constituencies,” the source said.

Second, he is also extremely popular among the party volunteers.

“The only problem is that he also has to go back to his constituency and has specific dates because of which we cannot campaign in all the constituencies. But as election nears, he will increase his sabhas. As of now, he addresses two jan sabhas everyday,” a party source added.

The party has also pressed in over 250 projectors across Delhi to intensify its campaign. The party has used this technique in the last assembly elections also.

“We have one projector every ward, which screens a short movie comprising speeches of Arvind Kejriwal, party’s policy and its agenda and how it plans to deal with different kinds of issues plaguing the national capital,” said party spokesperson Atishi Marlena.
