Aam Aadmi Party's (AAP) national convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday said that the party will contest on all seats in Gujarat in the 2022 state Assembly elections.
While addressing a press conference ahead of the inauguration of the AAP office, Kejriwal said the AAP was a credible alternative to the ruling BJP and opposition Congress in Gujarat.
"The AAP will contest each and every seat in the 2022 Gujarat Assembly elections. The AAP is a credible alternative to the BJP and Congress. Gujarat will change soon," he said.
"People here (Gujarat) think if electricity can be free in Delhi, why not here? Likewise, for hospitals and schools also the condition has not improved in 70 years here. But things will change now," he added.
Kejriwal also inducted Gujarati news channel anchor Isudan Gadhvi to AAP during the press conference. While replying a question, Kejriwal said, "The party would not bring Delhi model to Gujarat as each state has its own problems and accordingly there are solutions. The model of Gujarat will be decided by the people of Gujarat."
This is Arvind Kejriwal’s second visit to Gujarat after his party won 27 out of 120 seats in the Surat Municipal Corporation (SMC) elections in 2021.
