The Aam Aadmi Party has decided to follow BJP's successful 'Panna Pramukh' model, the party has devised a strategy to appoint around 2.5 lakh 'Block Pramukhs' for deep and direct engagement with voters for the upcoming Lok Sabha election.
AAP's Delhi unit convenor Gopal Rai told reporters that the appointments of pramukhs are expected to be complete by November. The pramukhs would cover 25,000 polling booths in Delhi.
The party has already announced the in charge of five of the seven Lok Sabha seats. The in-charges started preparing for the election, however, their official candidature is yet to be announced by the top leadership.
Gopal Rai said Block Pramukhs will play a crucial role for the party in the Lok Sabha polls.
"Each Block Pramukh will be responsible to establish communication with 25 households in each polling booth," Rai said.
The Block Pramukhs appear to be inspired by BJP's Panna Pramukh model under which worker is responsible to take care of voters listed on one page of the electoral roll of a polling booth and to ensure their participation in voting. Rai said AAP will soon announce the name of in charge in the remaining two seats.
We have been approached by 8-10 prominent personalities seeking to contest on the party ticket from these constituencies. The names are expected to be announced in the coming week," he said.
