Itanagar:  After scripting a stunning electoral success in Delhi, the Aam Aadmi Party has set its sight on the Northeast where the party intends to field maximum number of candidates.

To begin with, the party has decided to contest the coming Lok Sabha and Assembly elections in Arunachal Pradesh due this year, AAP's national executive member and in-charge of Northeastern states Habung Payeng said today.  “We will make all efforts to put up maximum number of candidates in the parliamentary and Assembly polls in Arunachal Pradesh, Payend told a press conference.

Payeng said that apart from Arunachal Pradesh, the AAP had already constituted state committees in Assam, Manipur, Tripura and Meghalaya. They are also in the pipeline in Sikkim, Mizoram and Nagaland.

“We will try to put up maximum candidates in the Lok Sabha election from the region,” he said.
