The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is all set to hold a Tiranga Yatra in Ayodhya today. It will be led by Delhi deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia and Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh.
The yatra is scheduled to take place in the city of Ayodhya from Gulab Bari to Gandhi Park.
This move by the AAP comes as it is trying to make inroads into the politics of Uttar Pradesh, where assembly elections are scheduled for next year. The party had announced the Tiranga Yatra in August in UP to mark the 75th year of Independence.
The Arvind Kejriwal-led party kicked off its statewide “yatra” in Agra on August 29, and held the event in Noida as well, on September 1. In coming days, the programme will take place in UP’s capital city of Lucknow, too
