AAP convenor and former Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal said that in the newly launched campaign the party team will interact with people from different walks of life in Delhi and invite their suggestions.
Kejriwal headed a minority AAP government for 49 days after the December 2013 assembly elections in Delhi threw up a fractured mandate.
However, Kejriwal, projecting himself as chief ministerial candidate again, faced severe criticism after resigning from the post of chief minister in February putting the national capital under President's rule since 17th of that month.
He was also slammed for staging 'dharnas' during his tenure as CM.
