Door-to-door doesn’t work; reach out to communities, castes, vote-banks: Medha Patkar


In this video shot after the Aam Aadmi Party’s dismal performance in the elections, Narmada Bachao Andolan’s head Medha Patkar, who had contested the from Mumbai North-East on behalf of the AAP, says that the party’s volunteers concentrated on door-to-door campaigns, which did not work. She says it is important to reach out to communities and castes. She mentions Muslims in that part of the speech. Later, she calls these sections of society exploited.

Patkar also believes Prime Minister relied on ‘soft Hindutva’ to win these elections though he did not speak of Hindutva in the campaign. Is her analysis of elections 2014 correct? Is it ethical to exhort party workers to cultivate vote-banks, which she admits she never did before entering mainstream politics? We leave answering these questions to our readers and viewers.
