“First of all, we will expand the party and build cadre. We will begin with zone level it will be followed by Zone level committees and district level committees . Later, we will make booth level committee and will do restructure in the state level committee,” he said.
In reply to question from mdia whether AAP plans to contest the local body polls in Gujarat, Khetan said it would be decided by the party’s political affairs committee.
