Raghav Chadha: Addressing the media on an important issue, Aam Aadmi Party Rajya Sabha MP and Gujarat co-incharge Raghav Chadha said that Gujarat assembly elections used to be a walk-over election for the Bharatiya Janata Party for a long time. That is, an election in which there was no need for publicity, no advertisement, no need to sweat, no need to unite one’s blood and sweat. Every time BJP used to win its elections like this. But ever since the arrival of Aam Aadmi Party and Arvind Kejriwal ji in Gujarat, the BJP has taken a back seat.
BJP Failed Gujarat, says Chadha
BJP has to field more than 10 of its Chief Ministers in the Gujarat elections and along with that, more than 150 MPs, innumerable MLAs and innumerable ministers have to risk their lives by putting them in the fray, the AAP leader said. And this is just the organization of the BJP, apart from this, their sister concern, they are all busy trying to stop the Aam Aadmi Party and Arvind Kejriwal by any means, Chadha added. He fruther stated BJP is so afraid of Arvind Kejriwal ji that he has to use all his strength in the election field of Gujarat.
Attacks BJP over inflation
Chadha has been speaking at numerous rallies alongside Kejriwal and Bhagwant Mann in the hopes that the AAP will be able to replicate its stunning performance in Punjab in Gujarat as well.
He also criticised the Gujarat government for failing to “fulfil” promises and attacked the BJP’s “double-engine” government trope during one of his rallies in Chotila.
Today, I want to tell you the truth of double engine ki sarkar. For the first time in 2014, a double engine government was formed in Gujarat. From 2014 to 2022, the demon of inflation has robbed the pockets of the common man of Gujarat and the country.
The biggest issue of this election is inflation. When the double engine government was formed in 2014, then the prices of the things of everyday life increased two to three times.
AAP ahead of BJP
In the battle of Aam Aadmi Party vs BJP, Aam Aadmi Party seems to be coming out ahead. Because old voters of Congress are seen voting for Aam Aadmi Party and BJP voters and even BJP workers are also voting for Aam Aadmi Party this time. And such people, who have not made up their mind till the last week of elections, whom to vote for, they have also decided after seeing the atmosphere that this time they have to vote for Aam Aadmi Party only.
Elections in Gujarat are scheduled for December 1 and December 5. The results will be announced on December 8, the same day that the Himachal Pradesh assembly election results were announced.
