The sudden change in guard in the Aam Aadmi Party is being keenly watched by the state Congress leadership. Anxious to retain its stranglehold over minority-dominated Saxttidom in the 2022 election, the Congress leadership headed by GPCC Chief Girishbab Chodankar in private appears elated over the turn of events in the AAP. In fact, local party leaders say the developments in AAP should come as welcome news for the Congress. Reason: In the 2017 Assembly election, only AAP had come close to challenge the Congress’ supremacy in Saxttidom in almost four out of the total eight seats at stake. Wait and watch.
