Ahmedabad: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday announced that Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will contest all seats in the Gujarat assembly elections, scheduled to be held next year. “Our candidates will contest on all seats”, said the AAP convener while addressing a press conference in Ahmedabad. This was his second visit to the home state of prime minister Narendra Modi, Gujarat, after AAP won 27 out of 120 seats in the Surat Municipal Corporation (SMC) elections 2021.
“People here (Gujarat) think if electricity can be free in Delhi, why not here? Likewise, for hospitals also the condition has not improved in 70 years here. But things will change now”, vowed Kejriwal.
Notably, the AAP had made inroads into Gujarat politics by emerging as the main opposition after the civic body elections there in its maiden flight there.
