Los Angeles San Fernando Valley chapter of AAP, Mr Sam Sidhu, Mr Kulbir Samra and their team, organized a meeting with Mr Aman Arora at Delhi Palace on Aug 02, 2017 evening. Mr Arora expressed his gratitude for the great support of NRIs community members during the Punjab Assembly Elections.
AAP Punjab state co-president Aman Arora, who was given the responsibility of restructuring the party in state, said that the party is forming a eight-layer organization and will appoint office-bearers at State, Zone, District, Assembly, Block, Circle, Village/Ward and Booth levels in the coming days.
Mr Arora said that feedback, which was received from all quarters within the party, was welcomed and thoroughly examined besides discussion and deliberations with state party leaders. He said that feedback collected from the workers gathered during his state wide tour ‘AAP Apniya Naal’ helped a lot in making various appointments.
There were about 60 members of the NRI community and It was an open dialogue of discussions around why AAP failed to change the sentiment of Punjab public into a majority in Punjab Assembly. There were members asking various pointed questions why NRI suggestions were not listened to or why some AAP members left the party and created an image of an unorganised party.
Since AAP failed to present a strong leader in the last Punjab election, many NRI members were demanding that Mr Khaira should be identified as party chief now and future Chief Minister of Punjab.
The folowimg 14 questions, one page sheet was preppared by LA organizers, delivered to each person on the table and asked all the questions, one by one to Mr. Arora.
Mr Arora answered all questions in a cool disposition and responded to all concerns in a reassuring manner that AAP is on track to set up a mature structure in Punjab politics.
"All the volunteers who had done excellent performance during the elections will be given suitable responsibilities in the party," the AAP's state unit co-president Aman Arora said. "Hitting out at the Amarinder Singh-led Congress government, it has miserably failed on all fronts."
Community members thanked Mr Arora for visiting LA to hear their concerns.
He was reminded not to make same mistakes in future and prepare better for the next election. NRIs will be ready for campaign again.
