Office-bearers distribute pamphlets at new bus stand and Big Temple
The Aam Aadmi Party, which created history of sorts by capturing power in Delhi in its electoral debut with 28 seats, seems to have caught the imagination of the people of Tamil Nadu.
As part of its members enrolment drive, the office-bearers of the party led by A.Venkateswaran, Thanjavur district convenor, issued pamphlets and enrolled members at new bus stand and Big Temple in Thanjavur on Monday.
The cadre with their typical Aam Aadmi caps were also seen collecting donations for the party. Mr.Venkateswaran said that 1,000 pamphlets were issued in the two places on Monday. A membership fee of Rs.10 was collected from new enrolees. "The response from people has been good as they see it as an instrument of change," Mr. Venkateswaran said.
The pamphlet exhorted people to put an end to hereditary politics, family politics, and individual politics. People should understand that corruption is the hallmark of many political parties in the country. With swindling money as their only aim, they cheat people and exploit resources for their own benefit. People should realise their power. "Service minded people interested in public good and service must join AAP," the pamphlet said.
It welcomed students and women to join the party to bring about change.
The membership drive will continue in the old bus stand here on Tuesday too, Mr. Venkateswaran said.
