NEW DELHI: Former Haryana Congress president Ashok Tanwar joined the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) giving a boost to the party’s expansion plans in Haryana where it has already appointed a poll in charge for the next Assembly polls.

Tanwar joined the AAP in Delhi in the presence of party supremo and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

Tanwar recently had a brief stint with the Trinamool Congress (TMC). He joined the TMC in November last year in the presence of TMC chief and West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee when the latter was visiting the national capital in a bid to put her party’s growth plans beyond her state on a fast track.

After joining the AAP, Tanwar described the party as “ummeed ki kiran” (ray of hope), telling that “Congress has no hope, its leaders are busy fighting among themselves”.

On the occasion, Kejriwal, who was born in Haryana’s Bhiwani, said, “My roots go back to Haryana, so I am delighted to see our Haryana unit getting strengthened like this.”

The Delhi CM also claimed that the AAP would “form government in Haryana in the coming days”. “I am certain with the vision of Ashok Ji, we will drive change in Haryana too. He hasn’t only worked at the state level but at the national level too, I firmly believe his experience will aid us not only in Haryana but throughout the country now,” he said.
