Bhopal: Social activist-turned politician Arvind Kejriwal's newly formed Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is considering to field its candidates in the next year's Assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh.

"The matter to contest the Madhya Pradesh Assembly elections scheduled to be held in November 2013 was discussed at a meeting in New Delhi recently," AAP state committee member Sharad Singh Kumbre said on Wednesday.

The AAP has already formed its state committee and all 45 district-level committees in Madhya Pradesh, Kumbre said. The state committee has eight members and they have been given different works for strengthening the party.

In the coming days, we will make party's block-level committees and set a target of enrolling 8-9 members at the grassroot level in every village of the state, he said. The main issues that the AAP will raise for the elections include corruption, development, crime against women, apart from law and order situation, he said.
