IANS  |  New Delhi 

Swaraj India's national President Yogendra Yadav on Sunday launched the party's first road show as part of the party's campaign for the upcoming MCD polls here.

The Party's candidate from Bijwasan, Satyendra Rana, along with hundreds of supporters, welcomed Yadav. Alongside the road show, the party supporters also took out a bike rally in the area.

Manju Yadav, the party's candidate from Kapashera, took the road show ahead from her ward.

"From Palam ward, Swaraj India's candidate Upasana took the road show ahead and made an appeal for votes. Party's Saadnagar candidate Rekha Yadav led the road show in her ward, with party supporters colouring the ambience in Basanti colours," party's National Chief Spokesperson Anupam told IANS.

Thousands of people, including auto-rickshaw drivers, expressed their support for Swaraj and raised the slogan of "Teen Sarkar, Teeno Bekaar".

Yogendra Yadav also raised the slogan of "Jumla, Drama, Ghotaala.. #bas_aur_nahin".

With the term "Jumla", Yadav attacked the BJP and the Prime Minister; with "Drama" he targeted the Aam Aadmi Party, and with "Ghotala", he attacked the Congress party.

"In the upcoming MCD elections, the party is beginning its electoral journey and is contesting all the 272 seats. Right from the process of selecting candidates to setting the agenda, the party is showing how it is different from the traditional political parties," Anupam said.

Swaraj is the first party that has kept environment and cleanliness at the top of its election agenda, he said, adding that the party has also launched its vision document by the name of "Saaf Dil, Saaf Dilli", which outlines its action plan.
