For the first time in the history of Indian politics, you can now call or WhatsApp to choose your chief ministerial candidate. Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in its latest campaign has opened an initiative where you can let them know who should be the CM candidate for the party in the upcoming state polls. 

Party's national convener Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday said his party will be asking the general public as to who should be the party's chief ministerial face in the Punjab Assembly polls even as he indicated that his own preference for the post was state unit president Bhagwant Mann. He ruled himself out in the race.

A mobile number was also launched where people can give their feedback by 5 pm till January 17 by recording their voice, sending SMS or WhatsApp.
