‘BJP is arrogant, AAP is here to make Gujaratis win’: Kejriwal, Mann hold roadshow in Ahmedabad


Ahmedabad: Eying the Gujarat Assembly elections that are slated to be held this year, Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) National Convenor Arvind Kejriwal and Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann exuded confidence in winning the polls.

Speaking to people during the roadshow, Aam Aadmi Party supremo and the Chief Minister of Delhi, Arvind Kejriwal, said, “I’m not here to bash any political party. I’m not here to take down the BJP. I’m not here to oust the Congress. I’ve come to ensure Gujarat’s victory. We must triumph for Gujarat and Gujaratis. Gujarat must be free of corruption.”

“They (BJP) are now arrogant after 25 years. They no longer pay attention to the people. Give the Aam Aadmi Party a chance, just as the people of Punjab and Delhi did. Give the Aam Aadmi Party a chance; if you don’t like us, vote for someone else the next time. If you give the Aam Aadmi Party a chance, you will forget about all the other parties,” he added.

Newly-elected Chief Minister of Punjab, Bhagwant Mann, said, “Delhi and Punjab are sorted, now we are preparing for Gujarat.”

AAP’s official Twitter handle termed this roadshow as ‘AAP Gujarat Tiranga Yatra’. During the roadshow, a tableau of Delhi’s world-famous Mohalla Clinic was displayed in the Ahmedabad roadshow.

Earlier in the day, Kejriwal and Mann visited Sabarmati Ashram in Gujarat. In a tweet in Hindi today, Kejriwal wrote, “Had the good fortune of visiting Sabarmati Ashram in Gujarat today. This ashram is a spiritual place, it seems as if the revered soul of Gandhiji resides here. Coming here gives a spiritual feeling. I consider myself blessed that I was also born in the country in which Gandhiji was born.”

AAP’s Gujarat hope has been fuelled by its performance in the February 2021 Surat Municipal Corporation (SMC) polls in which BJP won 93 seats, while Aam Aadmi Party bagged 27 seats in the Surat Municipal Corporation election and Congress drew a blank.
