Arvind Kejriwal made the announcement of contesting elections in Gujarat
Arvind Kejriwal made the announcement of contesting elections in Gujarat:- The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is all set to contest next year’s Assembly polls in the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s home state Gujarat; Delhi Chief Minister and AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal has made this announcement while addressing a huge rally in Surat on Sunday.
“The Aam Aadmi will be taking on the Congress and the ruling BJP in Gujarat in the Assembly polls,” Mr. Kejriwal said, while accusing the BJP government of crushing democracy in Gujarat.
“The Patidars who were the one demanding reservation here were shot at and killed? Why were they killed and at whose behest were those people shot? They were our citizens, not some terrorists. The stories that I have heard from the families of those who were killed made me cry,” Mr. Kejriwal said.
“The politicians who have ordered the firing on Patidar youth have to be punished and the people of Gujarat will be punishing them,” he said, stressing that the AAP supported the Patidar community’s main demand is for reservation and quota.
Kejriwal blamed Amit Shah and supported Patidars
In his 30-minute speech, Arvind Kejriwal’s main target was the BJP president Amit Shah, who faced protests by the Patidars two months ago during a social event in the city. “The next Assembly polls in Gujarat will see a ‘revolution’. Amit Shah is on one side and the aam aadmi, who is poor, struggles for survival on the other side. But when the AAP will stand up, the likes of Shah will lose power.”
“The entire Gujarat knows who is running the State. Every instruction followed comes from Delhi. Earlier, Anandiben has refused to follow Amit Shah’s instructions and she was shown the door. Vijay Rupani has been later installed as CM and he obeys every instruction and command of Shah,” Mr. Kejriwal said.
Lauding the 23-year-old Hardik for his spearheading approach towards the Patidar agitation, Mr. Kejriwal called him a “patriot.”
