The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Sunday prepared a road map for mass movement for full statehood to Delhi, starting on March 1. During the movement, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will go on an indefinite hunger strike and run the government from the venue of fast.
Briefing the media about the plan for initial 10 days, AAP Delhi convener Gopal Rai said the party will divide the city into 560 zones for the purpose. Three committees have been set up at central, Assembly and zonal levels.
The venue for the fast is yet to be decided, Rai said, adding the party is evaluating three-four locations, including the Ramlila Ground, Kejriwal's residence and Jantar Mantar.
"The location for the fast, which will also act as a control room for the movement, will be finalised within two-three days," he said.
The road map has come out after Kejriwal's meeting with party MLAs and office-bearers on Saturday and Sunday.
All party MLAs, Lok Sabha in-charges and ministers will join Kejriwal during the fast on the first day, he added.
"From second day (March 2), ministers, MLAs and incharges will accompany Kejriwal on rotation. Protest marches will be held in different parts of the city," he said.
"On March 10, there will be a meeting at the venue of fast and the future action plan will be decided. The movement will not end until Delhi gets full statehood," he said.
