Ahead of the assembly polls, Aam Aadmi Party national convenor and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal visit Goa for a two-day-tour on January 15 and January 16. During his two days visit the CM will participate in the door-to-door campaign and other activities.
His visit comes two days after AAP released its third list of candidates for the upcoming Goa Assembly Elections.
However, the AAP has already been issued by the Election Commission of India (ECI) for allegedly violating the model code of conduct as its leaders and workers approached people in groups of more than five for door-to-door campaigning.
The poll panel issued the notice shortly after Arvind Kejriwal launched the door-to-door campaigning from the Kharar assembly segment. Kejriwal met residents, urging them to vote for his party on the February 14 state assembly polls.
