Aam Aadmi Party protests against LPG hike in Kerala

Thiruvananthapuram The Aam Aadmi Party today lead a candle light vigil near the Kerala Assembly against the LPG price hike announced by the Centre.

After the Aam Aadmi Party's victory in Delhi, there has been a recruitment drive initiated across the country, including Kerala. In Thiruvananthapuram, the party has claimed that the membership has reached nearly 1,200 within a short span.

The protest against LPG price hike included all age spans. George Thomas, a district committee member, says, "I left my job in the merchant navy to join this party and make a difference. I am surprised to see such a good response from the youth".

Mr Ajit Joy, a former IPS officer said, "I have joined this party, because it's a call of duty. We want to see a corruption free India."

Reshma, a student who supported the cause-based protest, said that she is hopeful that the party will provide a corruption free India and "will stand up for several other causes."
