After Mandi, Delhi CM and AAP national convener Arvind Kejriwal is scheduled to hold a rally in Kangra district on April 23.

Sources say AAP is in talks with former Congress minister Vijai Singh Mankotia and other veteran leader of the district, who may join the party during Kejriwal’s visit.

Mankotia is a prominent Rajput leader from Kangra and was also the state president of ex-servicemen league of Himachal. There are over one lakh ex-servicemen associated with the league. If Mankotia joins AAP, it may prove beneficial for the party. AAP will get a credible political face from Kangra district, which has 15 Assembly segments.

Mankotia says the ball is in AAP’s court. He has refused to disclose further but the statement of Mankotia illustrates that he is in talks with an AAP leader.

The sources have also said AAP is in touch with a former MP and prominent Brahmin face.

Rakesh Chaudhary, who contested as an Independent from Dharamsala byelection in 2019 and got about 16,000 votes, has already joined AAP.

Chaudhary said thousands from various parts of Kangra district would participate in the rally. The people were disenchanted with both Congress and BJP leaders.

The present BJP government had ignored Kangra district. Unemployment and price rise had made lives of people miserable. AAP was the only party that was fighting for the rights of common man, he said.

Besides Chaudhary, Dr Naresh Varmani, former block president of the BJP from Nagrota Bagwan, is the only prominent leader who has joined AAP.
