The win in Punjab was seen as the AAP’s first major step towards expanding its base to other states, especially Haryana and Himachal Pradesh.

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Thursday appointed a new election in-charge for its Haryana unit, days after it was dissolved.

Earlier on January 25, the party dissolved its Haryana unit.

The AAP’s landslide win in neighbouring Punjab last year triggered a rush of rival political leaders to join the party.

The win in Punjab was seen as the AAP’s first major step towards expanding its base to other states, especially Haryana and Himachal Pradesh.

In April last year, Congress’ former Haryana chief Ashok Tanwar joined the AAP in the national capital, in the presence of Kejriwal.

Former Haryana Congress leader Nirmal Singh and his daughter Chitra, too, joined the AAP.

Welcoming the father-daughter duo to the AAP, Kejriwal had said all workers of the Haryana Democratic Front, a party led by Nirmal Singh, were welcome to the party.

The Haryana Democratic Party eventually merged with AAP.

In May last year, the Delhi chief minister visited Haryana and held a rally in Kurukshetra.
