To win the upcoming Delhi assembly polls, Aam Aadmi Party is planning to gather the votes of Purvanchal region in the national capital. The vote-bank form Purvanchal area forms a considerable portion of Delhi’s population. For this reason only, the Aam Aadmi Party is leaving no stone unturned.

Purvanchal region comprises of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar area. It has been reported that migrants form the majority in 15 of the 70 assembly constituencies in Delhi (Centre for Developing Societies (CSDS), 2017).

Apart from it, The AAP government led by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has introduced Maithali language in Delhi government schools. The language has been inculcated in the curriculum as an optional subject. the government is also planning to organize Maithali-Bhojpuri arts and culture festival in coming November.

It is also likely that the government will field a good number of candidates belonging to Purvanchal region in upcoming elections. In the last elections of 2015 also, AAP party had nominated over a dozen members from the region.

A senior leader from the party also told that Purvanchal people are one of the largest communities in Delhi. This population is important for every party, not just the AAP. He said that the community has been a strong voter base since AAP came to power in 2015.

Upcoming Delhi elections have put Aam Aadmi Party in a full energy mode. The party had previously launched a month-long “Jan Samwad Yatra” to connect with the voters. The Chief Minister has also announced to add around 14,000 beds in public hospitals in the city by 2023.
