Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

The unit of the will hold a convention of its newly-appointed office-bearers on Sunday, in a bid to revitalise its cadre after party's humiliating defeat in MCD polls and Rajouri Garden by-poll.

The (AAP) also aims to have dedicated volunteers at the booth level that can convey to the people the "good work" done by the Kejriwal

Recently-appointed convener of Gopal Rai today announced 'Mera Booth Sabse Majboot' campaign to be launched at a statewide convention scheduled to be held on May 21 at Punjabi Bagh Club.

The announcement comes after a three-week long feedback exercise undertaken by Rai with the various stakeholders of AAP's unit.

The leadership of the party completed the exercise after consultations with newly-elected councillors, candidates who contested the MCD elections, and all MLAs.

Rai also announced that the party was altering its organisational structure by introducing the new role of a mandal president for each polling station, apart from the existing structure right from booth, ward, assembly and district.

All mandal president positions in AAP will be filled before the May 21 convention, and along with other office- bearers of the party, the new appointees will also be invited to the convention.

The party has also decided that every single person associated with the party, whether it is the chief minister of Delhi, other ministers, MLAs, Councillors or party office bearers, will have to take charge of organisational building in their own polling booth.

"This is based on the feedback that despite performing well as the of Delhi, the party organisation was unable to communicate this message in every gali-mohalla of the city.

"There will be an effort to encourage a dialogue within and outside of the organisation through this structure, combined with building of an ongoing communication channel with the Delhi as well," Rai said.
