AAP has certainly received a strong mandate to do so," says Aruna Roy of the Mazdoor Kisan Shakti Sangathan (MKSS).
...
"There are many things AAP could do immediately," explains Roy. "It could ensure that all expenditure in every department and office is put online in real time. The party could make sure that the decision-making process and policies are opened to public participation and all meetings in government are carefully recorded, with minutes out in the public domain in real time. It could allow for participatory budgeting and planning, and ensure that all expenditures and beneficiary selections are subject to social audits."
"AAP can reach out to the vast range and depth of expertise that exists in the social sector on water, electricity, housing, health, urban poverty and anti-corruption issues," says Roy.

The BJP, on the other hand, was seen as being pro-rich," says Roy.
He believes that people are looking to AAP for the basic security to pursue their livelihoods. "They aren't asking for jobs. People come to the city in search of work. They settle where they do because it is affordable and near work. These are choices that are made within the constraints of the system," says Roy.
"The expectations from the AAP government are access to finance, work insurance in terms of a basic minimum wage and security from evictions," says Roy.
