Gandhinagar, Mar 7; AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal’s convoy was today stopped a few kilometres away from the official residence of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, with police asking him to seek an appointment with the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate.
Kejriwal had this morning announced that he will go to meet Modi at his residence to discuss the development of Gujarat. He, along with other BJP leaders drove to Gandhinagar, where the police stopped him and asked him to seek an appointment with Modi.
Later, another AAP leader Manish Sisodia went with police to the chief minister’s office to seek an appointment with Modi. “Going to seek appointment from Modiji…,” Sisodia tweeted after going to the CM’s office.
“Met the PS, gave him request for appointment. He says Modiji will decide and we will be informed soon,” he later tweeted.
After that, Sisodia reached the car in which Kejriwal was sitting and they drove away from Gandhinagar.
Kejriwal is on a four-day tour of Gujarat to ‘verify’ the development claims of Modi in the state.
Later, Gandhinagar SP Sharad Singhal said, “Kejriwal’s car was not stopped, but they stopped here. I took Sisodia along with me to the Chief Minister’s office, where he gave a written request. The response from the Chief Minister’s office was that they will give a reply to them in two or three days.”
Meanwhile, a group of around 150-175 suspected BJP members waved black flags and shouted anti-Kejriwal slogans at the spot where the former Delhi Chief Minister was waiting. Kejriwal later drove to the airport to go to Jaipur.
