The AAP is eyeing for securing six percent of valid votes polled in two other states apart from Delhi and Punjab so that it could realize its dream getting tag of national party.

Although the AAP faced a lot of criticism for contesting in 432 Lok Sabha seats, its top strategist Yogendra Yadav categorically said that the decision would strike on positive note. Shrugging off victory-loss of candidates, AAP leaders are keen on knowing the vote percentage in different states.

Yadav exudes confidence saying that AAP can easily get vote percentage in Haryana, Goa, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand. However, the possibility of AAP candidates emerging as winners from these constituencies is minimal.

Apart from BJP and Congress, only four other parties are recognized as national parties in the country. Excluding BSP and CPI-M, the national party status of NCP and CPI is in danger.

After getting recognition as national party, AAP will be allotted space for its national head office and provided with permanent party symbol that will be applicable all over India during elections.

AAP fighting for Opposition, not power

Post elections, the Aam Aadmi Party will try to carve its image as a prime Opposition despite its poor tally. Instead of raising scams under the Congress-led UPA government in general elections 2014, the AAP rode on anti-Modi plank, which is expected to benefit them. Even after Modi comes to power at the Centre, AAP will try to strengthen its political ground by being its staunch critique.
