The young leader is also spearheading the flagship Mohalla Sabha Project for the Government of NCT of Delhi. The effort to decentralise governance to empower every citizen was a major promise of the AAP before coming to power. Marlena refers to it as "localising, rather ‘peoplising’, the whole process because not all decisions need to be taken at the top level. There are some decisions that need to be made locally. However enlightened the government might be, they would not have an estimate of what every individual’s need is. We are the government which is taking inputs from the people."

Professional career

Marlena spent some time teaching at Rishi Valley School in Andhra Pradesh before moving to a small village near Bhopal in Madhya Pradesh. There she was involved with such things as organic farming and progressive education systems, and she worked with several non-profit organisations, such as the Sambhavana Institute of Public Policy. While there she met casually with various members of the AAP, including Prashant Bhushan.


Although always interest in public policy, Marlena observed the 2011 Indian anti-corruption movement as a sceptical outsider, believing that single-issue campaigns were ineffective. However, in January 2013 she became involved in policy formulation for the AAP, which has its roots in that movement. Marlena was closely involved with the Jal Satyagraha in Khandwa district of Madhya Pradesh 2015 and provided vital support to the AAP leader & activist spearheading the campaign Alok Agarwal during the historic protests, as well as during the legal battle that ensued.
