He added, "With a view to provide the people with a viable alternative and be the people's voice in speaking truth to power, the Aam Aadmi Party has decided to contests the upcoming Vidhan Sabha polls in Maharashtra." According to him, AAP will provide an alternative to the people.

The party has also convened a campaign committee which comprises of Ranga Rachure (Convenor), Kishore Mandhyan (Co-Convenor), Dhananjay Shinde (Secretary), Jagjit Singh (Treasurer) and Members - Preeti Sharma Menon, Devendra Wankhede, Kusumakar Kaushik, Ajinkya Shinde, Dr Sunil Gavit, Mukund Kirdat, Sandeep Desai.
