AAP leader Prashant Bhushan said the decision was taken at the start of a two-day national executive meeting following the popular response across the country after the AAP took power in Delhi.
“AAP will fight the Lok Sabha election, contest in the maximum number of states, and in as many seats as possible,” he told the media here.
He said the AAP will field candidates wherever “we have a reasonable (party) structure and we get good candidates”.
Another AAP leader, Sanjay Singh, added that the decision to enter the Lok Sabha battle had nothing to do with other political parties.
“We have made it clear that we have no alliance with the Congress in Delhi.
“We are not fighting elections to harm or benefit anyone,” he said, adding it made no difference whether the AAP decision harmed or benefited BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi or Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi.
