New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Saturday invoked a Varanasi-like instance when it said that the party will be contesting for the polls in Gujarat in 2017.
AAP leader and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will be visiting Gujarat on July 9 and 10.
After revealing that it will be contesting for the assembly polls in neighbouring Punjab, the Arvind Kejriwal government is set to let loose its political arsenal in PM Narendra Modi's bastion. The AAP believes that Gujarat has weakened under Chief Minister Anandiben Patel, paving the way for the shock-and-awe Delhi party to establish its dominion in the state.
If the Aam Aadmi Party contests for the assembly polls in Gujarat, anti-incumbency might become their main focus.
AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal had earlier visited attended a rally in Goa, crystallizing the fact that the party is looking to establish itself as a prominent political party in the Indian subcontinent.
