Kochi: Arvind Kejriwal, the Delhi Chief Minister and National Convenor of the Aam Aadmi Party, said on Sunday that the 'People's Welfare Alliance,' an AAP-Kerala Twenty20 party alliance, will not back any front in the Thrikkakara Assembly by-poll.
At a press conference in Kizhakkambalam, Twenty20 party president Sabu M Jacob and AAP state convener PC Cyriac said that whichever party won the byelection, the state's socio-economic and development scenario would remain unchanged. They claimed that after assessing the scenario, fans of Twenty20 and AAP should be entitled to exercise their franchise.
PC Cyriac, the AAP's Kerala Convenor, stated, "We won 9,000 votes from the Thrikkakara Assembly constituency in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections. We will undoubtedly have more time. As an organisation, we are making progress."
In the last election, we (Twenty20) received 14,000 votes. This time, we have formed an alliance with the AAP, which currently controls two Indian states. Despite the fact that we have not run a candidate, our party alliance will determine whether we win or lose in the Thrikkakara election," Sabu Jacob, head of the Ki-tex Group, which promotes Twenty20, said.
Arvind Kejriwal, the Delhi Chief Minister and AAP National Convenor, announced the formation of a People's Welfare Alliance between the two parties on May 15. The bypoll for the assembly will be held on May 31 and the results will be announced on June 3.
