Having triumphed Punjab, the Aam Aadmi Party has now set its eyes on conquering Himachal as the party on Saturday formally announced its plans to contest the Himachal Assembly polls to be able to provide an alternative to the common man who is "fed up with both the BJP and the Congress".

All set to make inroads into Himachal, Delhi Health Minister Satyender Jain on Saturday arrived here to celebrate the party's victory beyond Delhi. "It is only AAP which knows the mantra to defeat BJP, which we have done thrice in Delhi. Congress cannot take on the BJP," he said. He said the AAP will now be an option available to the electorate of Himachal as people are fed up with 'khaas' and want 'aam' as their representatives.
