New Delhi: With the countdown to the next Lok Sabha elections on, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is likely to come out with two manifesto's - a special manifesto for Delhi and a separate manifesto for other states.

The party wants to focus on their demand for statehood, which is the central theme of their campaign in Delhi.

"The details are still being worked out but the party will likely come out with two manifesto's. Delhi is a focus state of ours and plan for the state needs special focus," a senior AAP leader, who did not wish to be quoted said.

The AAP is in power in Delhi assembly where they came to power after winning 67 of the 70 seats in 2015. In the run up to Lok Sabha elections, the party has made the issue of statehood for the national capital the plank of their campaign.

AAP national convener and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday launched a campaign of the party where they burned the Bharatiya Janata Party's 2014 manifesto where they promised statehood to Delhi.

The party has already announced names for six of the seven Lok Sabha constituencies in the state. East Delhi candidate Atishi Marlena is already crowd sourcing ideas and inputs for a separate manifesto for her constituency.

This election the party has decided to focus on a limited number of seats.

"Besides Delhi, we are contesting all seats in Punjab, Haryana, Goa and Chandigarh. The party has received proposals from a few candidates in other states, for which the decision will be taken soon," the leader added.

In the run-up to Delhi assembly elections, the party had held meeting across the 70 constituencies to come out with a 70 point manifesto for the election.
