AAP leadership and its followers are in pleasure mode even after they achieved Zero in Himachal Pradesh and single digits in Gujarat 

After AAP kicked out might BJP in Delhi MCD elections where Ruling establishment BJP ruled for 15 years has send jitters to BJP camps ..

But this is short lived as they could not make any dent in other two states .. 

But they work in the larger plan of Arvind Kejriwal’s party as the vote share is enough to give it ‘national party’ status. 

Celebrations were on at the party offices, particularly at the Delhi headquarters, where buntings were already in place after Wednesday’s Delhi civic poll win. 

Look what Mr Kejriwal has said, in a video message: “Gujarat’s people have given us the national status that only a few parties have… It’s an amazing achievement for a small, young party.”

Party leader Sanjay Singh moved to the next step already. “Now it will be Narendra Modi versus Arvind Kejriwal in 2024 (Lok Sabha polls),” he said, 

“It’s a feat to be recognised as a national party in just 10 years,” he added, “AAP is the the fastest growing political party in India.”

In Gujarat, the AAP vote share is constantly hovering above 10 per cent. This will be the fourth state where it gets over 6 per cent fulfilling a key criterion to be recognised as a national party

It needs to win just two seats now, and that’ll ensure the big landmark for a party that last month celebrated 10 years of its inception.

The party has governments in Delhi and Punjab and thus has ‘state party’ status. It got that in Goa, too, early this year after winning two seats and 6.77 per cent votes. 

With Gujarat, it will join the list of national parties that at present has eight parties, with the BJP and Congress being the largest.

The ‘status’ thus comes also in the backdrop of municipal polls in Delhi that marked the first time AAP unseated the BJP in a direct contest at any level.

Arvind Kejriwal’s deputy, Manish Sisodia, also pointed towards his party’s new ‘status’, and tweeted: 

“For the first time, education and health issues are making a mark in national politics.”
