Ahead of Kejriwal's visit, rumours rife over merger of Twenty20 with Aam Aadmi Party

Kochi: Aam Aadmi Party again sets to find a foothold in the state through cooperating with regional parties like Twenty-20. Based on reports, Twenty20 is likely to merge with the Aam Aadmi Party very soon. The rumours came out after both parties decided to contest together in the upcoming Thrikkakara byelection. However, the reports of a merger were refuted by Twenty20 patron Sabu M Jacob.

Meantime, AAP National convener and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal will arrive in Kochi on May 15 to attend the convention hosted by Twenty20 in Kizhakkambalam.

Aam Aadmi Party aims to find a political identity in Kerala before the assembly elections in the state. Therefore, Thrikkakara bypoll is the first of the party's long term strategies to get a foothold in the state.

Sabu M Jacob added that AAP and Twenty20 have agreed to field a acceptable candidate for both. However, the candidate is yet to be decided. The decision will be made soon. The candidate will be someone who could prove to be a potent figure in the development of Thrikkakara, he said.
