As the Gujarat Assembly elections are near, prominent BJP leaders from the state held a two-hour-long meeting with PM Modi in Delhi on Saturday. Taking a jibe at the BJP, Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party convener Arvind Kejriwal took to Twitter to ask whether the BJP would dissolve the Gujarat Assembly next week to declare elections in the state. He wrote, is the BJP going to announce fresh elections in Gujarat next week after dissolving the Gujarat Assembly? Are they so scared of AAP (Aam Aadmi Party)? Those present in the meeting with PM and Home Minister included Gujarat Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel, State Minister Rajendra Trivedi and Chief Principal Secretary K Kailashanathan. Assembly elections in BJP-ruled Gujarat are likely to be held later this year.
On the back of its massive victory in the Punjab Assembly elections, AAP is all set to contest all the seats in the Gujarat elections hoping to gain a foothold in the state. AAP has announced that Kejriwal will be on a two-day visit to Gujarat from Sunday.
