Arvind Kejriwal on two-day visit to Gujarat
Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party supremo Arvind Kejriwal will on Thursday visit Gujarat on a two-day visit to the poll bound state.
The Delhi Chief Minister will arrive at Ahmedabad airport on Thursday at 2.30pm where he will address the media and then leave for Mahuva, near Bhavnagar, media reports said.
Gulab Singh Yadav, AAP’s Gujarat in -charge, said: “Kejriwal will arrive at Ahmedabad airport today and straight away go to Mahuva town in Bhavnagar district. On Friday, he will inaugurate a special ward and an operation theater of Sadbhavna Trust (hospital) run by AAP leader Kanu Kalsaria.”
Yadav added that Kejriwal, after attending the programme at Mahuva on Friday, will return to Ahmedabad and fly back to Delhi.
Kejriwal’s today’s visit will be his fifth in the PM Modi’s home state in the last few months, which will go to polls by end of next year.
Ever since the surgical strikes by Army in PoK, Kejriwal has been attacking Prime Minister Narendra Modi and recently in the wake of demonetisation of high-value denominations and resultant inconvenience caused to people.
On July 9, kickstarting AAP’s campaign for the 2017 Gujarat assembly polls, Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal had asked the people to get rid of “hooligans” and “corrupt” persons. Kejriwal had visited Somnath and other places to launch AAP’s campaign for the polls.
He visited Una town on July 22 in the wake of the assault on Dalits allegedly by cow vigilantes and met family members of the victims.
In August, Kejriwal also visited the state to pay homage to head of Swaminaryan sect Pramukhswami Maharajah, who died at the age of 95.
In his latest visit in October, Kejriwal had spent four days in Gujarat, during which he met relatives of Patel youths who were killed last year when the quota agitation was at its peak. He had also addressed a huge rally in Surat in South Gujarat.
