AAP to contest Gujarat election, says Kejriwal

Surat, Oct 16 (IANS) The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will contest next year’s assembly elections in Gujarat, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal announced on Sunday.

Using the phrase “aam aadmi” (common man) for the AAP, Kejriwal told a huge rally here that the “aam aadmi” would take on both the Congress and the state’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

Alleging that Gujarat was being run by BJP President Amit Shah, he appealed to the people to oust him.

“Amit Shah has thrown an open challenge to the people of Gujarat that he will run the state whichever way he wants and no one can do anything about it,” Kejriwal thundered.

The AAP leader said the Surat gathering reminded him of the Anna Hazare movement of 2011 when the the “whole nation” had come out on the streets.

Kejriwal said Amit Shah had today thrown a challenge to the people of Gujarat.

“Are you ready to fight the elections, win and throw out Amit Shah? The next Gujarat elections will be a revolution,” he said. “It will be Amit Shah versus the people of Gujarat.”
