"After Election Commission announced the dates all parties are making their strategies for the Lok Sabha polls. Today a meeting of all the office-bearers of AAP that includes MP's, declared candidates of Lok-Sabha from AAP, MLA's, counsellors, ward president, Sanghatan Mantri etc will be held with party chief and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal at his residence," said Gopal Rai.

"The AAP will further strengthen its strategy for the Lok Sabha elections," he added. (ANI)
